Lou Dobbs demands GOP help Trump fight for ‘what is rightfully his’
Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Friday vehemently defended President Trump’s claims that he isn’t receiving a chance at a fair election, calling it “outrageous.”
Dobbs, a vocal Trump supporter, urged Republicans to defend the president during an interview with Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Calif.), another ardent Trump ally.
“The president doesn’t want a statue erected to him,” Dobbs said. “What he wants is a free and fair election and honest results, and it’s been denied to him.”
As Nunes stressed that the election shouldn’t be called for President-elect Joe Biden, blaming the media for pushing what he described as a false narrative, Dobbs interrupted.
“What is the party doing to make certain it isn’t called?” he asked the GOP lawmaker. “I see so little animation in the Republican Party on this. It’s as if it’s just another day at the store and when, in fact, I believe the fate of the republic hangs in the balance here. Don’t you?”
Nunes argued that Republicans are trying to get their message across but are being censored by the mainstream news outlets and social media sites such as Facebook, calling for the use of alternative apps such as Parler and Rumble instead.
Dobbs then attacked “radical” Democrats, accusing them of intimidating Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh and “millions of Americans with their violence, their antifa, their Black Lives Matter.”
“This is an effort to intimidate,” Dobbs concluded. “This is an attempt to take over the country and deny this president what is rightfully his, a second term.”
Dobbs’s comments come as Trump and his campaign have launched efforts to challenge the election outcome in various states, including Georgia, where a recount is underway.
