WATCH: Fox News’ Shepard Smith Says ‘There Is No Invasion. No One Is Coming to Get You. There’s Nothing at All to Worry About’

Exactly.

Fox News Network may be known for stoking the fears of its majority-conservative viewers and bolstering the falsehoods put forth by President Donald Trump, but at least one host is setting the record straight.

Shepard Smith assured viewers on his show, Shepard Smith Reporting, that despite the president’s fear mongering, the migrant caravan currently traveling on foot from Central America to the United States is not an “invasion,” nor are they a threat to the nation.

Smith said:

“The migrants, according to Fox News reporting, are more than two months away – if any of them actually come here. But Tomorrow is one week before the midterm election, which is what all of this is about. There is no invasion. No one is coming to get you. There’s nothing at all to worry about.”

Watch the video below:

By all accounts, Smith is right.

The caravan is still around 1,000 miles from the nearest United States border. Even if it does reach the United States, it will do so long after the 2018 midterm elections. Its existence is no outlier either. The last caravan began in April of this year and peaked at about 1,500 people, but by the time it reached the United States, the group had waned to less than 500 people.

Twitter hailed Smith for keeping it real.

Some wondered what the segment must’ve seemed like to a devout Fox News viewer suddenly confronted with facts.

Despite there being little reason for alarm, the president appears to be swatting a fly with a sledgehammer anyway.
