As President Donald Trump’s attempt to have the courts overturn the result of the election continues to fail, Fox Business host Lou Dobbs launched into a wild meltdown on Friday, demanding that Republicans fight to ensure President Donald Trump gets what’s “rightfully his, a second term” in office.
Dobbs comments came during an interview with Republican congressman and Trump ally Devin Nunes of California. Dobbs vehemently defended Trump’s claims that he isn’t receiving a chance at a fair election, calling it “outrageous.”
“The president doesn’t want a statue erected to him,” Dobbs told Nunes. “What he wants is a free and fair election and honest results and it’s been denied to him.”
As Nunes replied 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 are you doing? 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 like Facebook, calling for the use of alternative apps like Parler and Rumble instead.
Dobbs then attacked what he called “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.
Trump has not conceded the presidential race while his campaign has faced a series of setbacks in court recently as it attempts to change the election results.
