Lou Dobbs wants to know “what is wrong” with Sen. Mitt Romney.
The Fox Business host unloaded on the Utah Republican after he said this week that he has no plans to endorse President Trump or anyone else in 2020.

“Can you hear the tears falling on the marble floors under those terrible, terrible anti-Trump-ers?” he asked on Friday’s “Lou Dobbs Tonight” after noting Trump’s reelection chances and predictions that there will not be a recession next year.
“Perhaps the left-wing business press should start listening and start reporting on this booming Trump economy,” Dobbs suggested before reporting that “never-Trumper and RINO” Romney would not be endorsing Trump “or any other Republican candidate in the primary or general election.”
“Romney says he has no plans to endorse President Trump for the 2020 election,” Dobbs said.
“I know many of you were waiting to hear what Romney would be saying about our president,” he added with deliberate deadpan. “Well, there it is.”
“I mean the despair is spreading across the country now,” he added, noting how the former Massachusetts governor also failed to endorse Trump in 2016.
“I’m not planning on endorsing in the presidential race,” Romney told CNN this week. “At this stage, I’m not planning on endorsing in the primary or in the general.”
His remarks echoed his previous sentiment, expressed to reporters back in June.
“I don’t think endorsements are worth a thimble of spit,” Romney said then. “I wouldn’t be surprised if I stay out of the endorsements.”
“As you can see, he’s not a quick learner,” Dobbs quipped about the 2012 GOP presidential nominee.
“What is wrong with this man?” he asked former White House aide Kelly Sadler, currently a pro-Trump super PAC communications official.
”I’m wondering if we should call Romney and the RINOs who are not supporting the president … we could just call them the Illuminati of the 6 percent because the president has 94 percent … support of the Republican Party,” Dobbs said. “So I guess they want to build a base around 6 percent.”
Later in his show, Dobbs – who visited the White House this week – wished viewers a “great weekend” and credited Trump with “making such a thing possible for us all.”

Dobbs also took a moment to tell viewers about his visit to the White House which is filled with “sunshine” and “high energy.”
LOU DOBBS last night:
“The mood in that White House couldn’t be more high energy. … and I want you to know the joint is hopping. At every level on every floor, this White House is energized, there is sunshine beaming throughout the place and on almost every face.” pic.twitter.com/YNFAwyoD2G

“A lot is happening in Washington and across this great country of ours. And it’s because we have a president who is a true leader,” he said. “It’s winner and winning center, and our president is at the top of his game … this president is reveling in it all.”
