President Donald Trump and the mainstream media have made it clear that they are both not on the same page. As Trump continues his war of words against the press, one host on Fox News couldn't help but point out recent examples of hypocrisy.

Trump's mystery sources

It all started when Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president back in June 2015. After labeling illegal immigrants from Mexico as "rapists" and "murderers," the former host of "The Apprentice" was quickly hit with criticism from the media. From that point forward, Trump's grudge against the press would continue, escalating by the day, and reaching a fever pitch last week when the president smeared the media during his speech at CPAC, before later banning well-respected news outlets from covering a press briefing at the White House.

During his CPAC speech, Trump called for the media to stop using anonymous sources, citing their alleged promotion of spreading "fake news." As reported by Mediaite on February 28, Fox News host Shepard Smith pointed out the irony of Trump's previous remarks.

During a luncheon at the White House on Tuesday, an anonymous "senior administration offical" addressed those in attendance and claimed that Donald Trump was now open to a compromise on immigration reform. The compromise in question would allow illegal immigrants who have not committed any further crimes from being deported, while also be given a chance to obtain citizenship at some point in the future.

In response, Shepard Smith addressed the issue with fellow Fox News host Chris Wallace.

"So, they're (Trump admin) giving us anonymous sources after they rail on us for using anonymous sources," Shepard Smith mockingly said, before adding, "That is hilarious." "Don't use anonymous sources except for the ones we send out to you anonymously," Smith said in satire, while jokingly noting, "Those anonymous ones are awesome."

Smith doubles down

This isn't the first time that Shepard Smith has hit back at Donald Trump over the issue of anonymous sources.

During a Fox News broadcast on Monday, Smith called out the White House for using unnamed sources when dealing with information regarding Sean Spicer checking staff phone records for potential leaks. Despite the backlash against him, Trump doesn't appear willing to change his tune anytime soon.
