After police officers in Baton Rouge were ambushed, leaving three dead, one in critical condition and two injured, former Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal appeared on FOX News via phone for an interview with Shepard Smith.
As Jindal spoke, he said, “It is time for folks across party lines, across ideological lines, to condemn this violence, condemn this insanity. We’ve got to come together. We’ve got to say that all lives matter. It doesn’t matter what color you are; black, white, brown, red. It doesn’t matter. All Lives Matter. We’ve got to protect and value our police.”
Pretty simple and powerful message, right? Doesn’t that sound like one that any reasonable person could get behind, especially as cops are lying dead in the streets?
Well, if your name is Shepard Smith, then the answer would be wrong.
It didn’t take long for Smith to come back with his highly insensitive and divisive commentary.
“Governor, you know that that phrase that you just used is one that’s seen by many as derogatory. Right? I. I just wonder why it is you would use that phrase when there’s a certain segment of the population that believes it’s a real dig on them.”
As a black woman and simply as a human being, I have four words for Shep…and this is the clean version.
“Are you kidding me???”
For the second time in just over a week, police officers have been targeted, ambushed, and killed, and Shepard Smith wants to make the argument that to say ‘all lives matter’ is derogatory?

Jindal’s response was great and really put Shepard Smith in his place, albeit kindly, for even trying to make that argument.
WATCH as Shepard Smith once again shows his activist ways for leftist causes and his colossal insensitivity. It will make you wonder how in the world the man still has a job at FOX News.
