Lou Dobbs loses to criticism of Bill Barr on Trump tweets and attacks ‘rancid’ justice department


If there is one thing Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs absolutely does not support, he is critical of President Donald Trump of other Republicans.Hours after Attorney General William Barr criticized Trump's tweet about Roger Stone's sentencing recommendation and said it made it "impossible" to do his job, Dobbs started his Thursday night broadcast taunting the prosecutor general for not getting "what this president went through."

The pro-Trump host was so exasperated by Barr's comments - which were strangely followed by the White House reassuring that Trump was not "bothered" by them at all - that he suggested that Barr could be part of what is called "the deep state".

Dobbs' frustrations over this spilled over into a segment with fellow Trump, a sycophant and frequent guest, Tom Fitton, when Dobbs grumbled that although he had "immense respect and high hopes" for Barr , he was less than pleased that the attorney general told ABC News that Trump was making his job more difficult with his tweet.

After Fitton said Trump positions could make things "a little more difficult" for Barr, even if Barr's priority should be to deal with Justice Department "personnel issues", Dobbs went wild against the Attorney General.

Declaring that Trump "speaks fully, freely and directly" without going through "wise intermediaries in the national left media," the Fox host said that he was "so disappointed with Bill Barr."

"I have to say this - it's a shame when he doesn't understand what this president has gone through and what the American people have gone through, and what his burden is as attorney general," said Dobbs, adding : "Where the hell is the connection? Where the hell are the charges? Where the hell are the accusations against the politically corrupt deep state within the Department of Justice, the FBI, and why the hell don't we hear an apology from a member of this corrupt and rancid department for what 'he allowed?! "

Dobbs, increasingly agitated, concluded his mini-monologue by boiling a little more about Barr's complaints about Trump's use of social media.

"But then to hear this attorney general complain about this president who fights against each of these damn people to do the right thing and to restore this country, and it is his mission to do so, not to make fun of his boss Hissed the ultra-conservative host. "And by the way, I don't want to hear bullshit about an independent Justice Department. "

“This Ministry of Justice, like everyone else, works for the president. It is part of the executive branch, ”he continued. "Where are the people talking about John F. Kennedy putting Bobby Kennedy, his brother, as a GA ?! I mean, who are these people ?! "

While Dobbs is furious at Barr’s on-air performance, other Republicans have supported the Attorney General’s call for Trump to withdraw his tweets. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said in an interview with Fox News, "I think the President should listen to his advice."

The White House, meanwhile, ignored the attorney general's comments and said that Barr "has the right, like any American citizen, to make his views known publicly."
