The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday rejected a President Donald Trump campaign’s request to block the certification of Pennsylvania’s election results, bringing an end to the president’s meritless efforts to overturn the election results.
In response, Fox News Business host Lou Dobbs slammed the High Court’s rejection as “cowardly.”
The Supreme Court, which includes three justices appointed by President Donald Trump, declined to question the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s victory over Trump. Republicans had claimed the state’s expanded mail-in ballot system was unconstitutional in a long-shot bid to support Trump’s baseless whining that the election was rigged.
“Well, the Supreme Court demurred: courage lacking, and the will to stand up for the Constitution now very much in question,” Dobbs, a Trump acolyte, said on his Fox Business show.
Dobbs was especially irked that the justices made the decision without commenting on the matter.
“I mean, it really looks awful for them not to have said anything, to have not been enlightening in any way,” he griped to Greg Teufel, an attorney representing the GOP in the case. “It’s downright frustrating, but it’s also very cowardly on the part, it seems to me, of the court,” Dobbs added.
