WATCH: Lou Dobbs Screams At Stephen Miller For Making Trump ‘Fight Alone’

As big of a blowhard and jerk as Fox Business host Lou Dobbs is, what he did Monday to White House adviser Stephen Miller was actually fun to watch, if only because Miller got the dressing down he so richly deserves for being a douchebag.

Discussing the failed legal challenges to the 2020 election with Miller, Dobbs angrily declared:

“The president warns for months and months and months about mail-in ballots and the potential for fraud, and the Republicans do nothing, Stephen. Nothing. What’s wrong with the Republican party?!”

The smarmy Miller gladly agreed:

“Where is the outrage?”

That led Dobbs to go on an extended rant:

“The reality is that this president right now is fighting — and let’s be straightforward about it — he’s fighting all alone. And Ted Cruz has stepped up to say he’ll argue before the Supreme Court. Why on God’s green Earth wouldn’t the White House jump on it?”

But when Miller started to talk about state legislatures and the role they could play in overturning the will of the voters, Dobbs would have none of it, and he flat-out attacked Miller verbally:

“No, no, Stephen. I’m not going to let you do this! I’m not going to let you do that!… I asked a question. You and I, we’re reasonably smart and decent fellows. Why don’t you answer me? That’s all I’m asking here, Stephen. Why don’t you guys jump and salute Ted Cruz and say, yes, we want you on the team now? My God, this is not a time for internecine nonsense on the part of the Republican party which is watching its blood drain into the streets because they’re gutless!”

Of course, the Republicans have been gutless for the last four years, unwilling to criticize Trump when he breaks the law or acts like a dictator. But now they’re refusing to follow Donald off the cliff into the dustbin of history, and Dobbs is furious. The poor bastard is so lacking in self-awareness that he can’t even realize Trump enablers like him (and Miller) have been the problem all along and very nearly destroyed this country.

Coronavirus Fox News Lies Media in America The Karma Is Gonna Get Ya

After Insisting That Coronavirus Was A Media Hoax, Lou Dobbs Is Now In Quarantine

Ever since coronavirus was first detected in the United States, Fox Business host Lou Dobbs has been proudly spouting White House talking points, claiming that the virus was merely a “hoax” made up by the news media to embarrass President Donald Trump.


The Daily Beast notes that in recent days, Dobbs used some of the exact same language that came from Trump himself:

“Less than two weeks ago, even as he reported that the virus had infected 113,000 people in 111 countries and territories around the world, Dobbs was accusing the ‘national left-wing media’ of ‘playing up fears of the coronavirus’ in order to drive down the stock market.

“More recently, he had taken to echoing Trump by referring to COVID-19 as the ‘Wuhan virus’ and lauding the president for causing a brief market increase with his national emergency declaration a week ago. On Wednesday of this week, he put up a poll on his screen that asked viewers to rate Trump’s ‘leadership’ on the ‘Wuhan virus.’ He gave them three options: ‘Superb,’ ‘Great’ or ‘Very good.'”

But Friday’s edition of “Lou Dobbs Tonight” began in an rather odd manner: With fill-in host David Asman grimly announcing:

“Lou is in self-quarantine tonight. We just learned that one of his team members has tested positive for COVID-19. Lou feels well, he has no symptoms, but out of an abundance of caution, he and his team are taking the necessary precautions.”

Ah, sweet karma!


Dobbs and the other sycophants at Fox have been screeching that the COVID-19 scare is meant to destroy Trump. (As if he needs any help with that.) But they forgot to factor in that a virus doesn’t care who you are or how you try to pervert the truth. Coronavirus is an equal opportunity attacker, and now Dobbs gets to eat crow for two full weeks.

It’d be nice to think that a two-week respite would give Dobbs time to reflect on his own stupidity and admit he was wrong. But it’s a safe bet he’ll be back and trying to downplay the pandemic once again. Some people just never learn.
