In the wake of the 2020 election chaos, many Republicans have turned on Donald Trump, either outright denouncing him or abandoning him when the chips were down.
Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs takes issue with these Republicans in a major way, blasting those that accepted Trump’s endorsements in the lead-up to the November election only to turn on him along with the mainstream media narrative.
In an interview with former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows on Friday, Dobbs took the opportunity to call out Trump’s fair-weather friends that are attempting to use their power within the GOP to eject him from the party altogether.
Dobbs specifically called out Senate GOP leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who has taken great pains within the last several weeks to sever his previously-warm ties with Trump.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel received similar treatment from Dobbs after indicating that Trump would not be a centerpiece of the GOP going forward.
According to Dobbs, the treatment Trump received at the hands of the GOP establishment proves that America is in need of a “new generation of leaders” that will perpetuate Trump’s “America First” agenda.
“I’ve never seen a president whose endorsement mattered more in terms of results, nor have I seen more recipients of such an endorsement be less grateful and, in point of fact, be well, peevish, petty and vindictive against a man they obviously are jealous of and who they fear mightily for his influence among the base, some 75 million people,” Dobbs said
“It’s pitiful to watch what happens to Mitch McConnell’s face when he hears the name, Trump,” the Fox star continued.
