On Tuesday night, President Donald Trump addressed Congress for the first time since becoming the commander in chief. While most in the right-wing media praised Trump for his speech, one host at Fox News was not that impressed.

Fox News on Trump

Ever since he was sworn into office in January, Donald Trump has been forced to deal with a constant stream of controversy. From his tirades on Twitter to his questionable executive orders, the former host of "The Apprentice" has been facing constant backlash from the media and his political opponents. The biggest issue that has been on the plate of the new president has been what potential ties he has with Russia.

After retired Gen. Michael Flynn was forced to resign as National Security Advisor due to a possible link to the Kremlin, calls for an independent investigation have increased. When Trump neglected to mention Russia in his speech to Congress, one Fox News host decided to speak out, as reported by Raw Story on March 1.

Following Donald Trump's aforementioned speech to Congress, the consensus from Fox News was that the president hit a home run. While the majority of those on the network were pleased, host Shepard Smith had a few criticisms. Smith opened up his segment on Wednesday by pointing out that Trump continues to silence focus on Russia's involvement in the election. "During the president's address last night, there was not one mention of Russia and its meddling of the election, or his team’s communications with Russian officials," Smith said.

"House Republicans killed a Democratic measure that would have pressured the Justice Department to turn over documents related to the Trump administration’s ties to Russia," Shepard Smith went on to point out, before noting that the White House continues to leave questions unanswered.

This isn't the first time that Smith has broken with the routine narrative on Fox News. Last week, he hit back at Trump for his constant abuse of the mainstream media, while also coming to the defense of CNN after the president labeled the network "fake news."

As Donald Trump continues to ignore and marginalize the impact that Russia had on the election and his administration, many in the media don't appear willing to fall in line.

With even more conservative members of the press now pushing back, Trump will have to address the issue at some point in the near future.
