Shepard Smith Cuts Off French Elected Official For Speculating Notre Dame Fire Not an Accident (VIDEO)

Fox News host Shepard Smith cut off a French elected official who speculated the Notre Dame fire was not an accident.

The Fox News chyron was pushing the narrative that the fire was an accident and stated that “the spire was under construction before the fire, collapse.”

“Not on my watch,” Shepard Smith said scolding Philippe Karsenty, a French elected official who questioned the “politically correct” narrative that the Notre Dame fire was an accident.

Mr. Karsenty brought up the fact that churches across France are getting desecrated and vandalized on a weekly basis — this angered Shepard Smith because how dare anyone speak the truth.

“Even the Nazis didn’t dare destroy it [Notre Dame cathedral],” Karsenty said. “And you have to know for the last year we’ve had churches desecrated each and every week all over France so of course you will hear the story of the politically correct which will tell you it is probably an accident.”

Shepard Smith immediately cut off Karsenty — “Sir. Sir! Sir! We’re not going to speculate here of the cause of something for which we don’t know.”

Shepard Smith would not let the guest speak and eventually ended the call saying, “No sir, not here, not on my watch!”


Churches across France have been getting desecrated, including vandalism and arson.

In mid-March, the historic Church of St. Sulpice in Paris was set on fire shortly after mass on Sunday,  Le Parisien reported — it was suspected to be arson.

In February, at the St. Nicholas Catholic Church in Houilles, in France, a statue of the Virgin Mary was found smashed, and the altar cross had been thrown on the ground, according to  La Croix International.

Many other reports of vandalism to churches in France detailed Crosses and statues of Saints smashed.

Fox News host Neil Cavuto also cut the mic of a guest who speculated the fire was no accident.

If only Fox News shut down people speculating about Russia collusion the way they cut off their guests speculating the Notre Dame fire was not an accident.

Also Shepard Smith…
