Fox Business host Lou Dobbs spent a fiery hour on his show railing against Republicans and others who “won’t do a damn thing” to fight for President Donald Trump.
From his opening monologue on Monday to discussions with various guests, Dobbs warned of the effects of this year’s election as an outright “assault on the core of our democracy” and questioned why more is not being done to expose the allegations of fraud and corruption.
The host of “Lou Dobbs Tonight” leveled one scathing rebuke after another on Monday as he called out the FBI, the Justice Department and Attorney General William Barr as well as “RINOs” who have remained largely silent in the president’s re-election battle.
Dobbs took off running at the start with a commentary on the “poor performance” of Democrat nominee Joe Biden in the 2020 presidential race, casting doubt on the claims of election victory in light of certain numbers.

“In the battle for the White House, new data shows just how poor a performance Joe Biden had in the November election as compared to the number of votes he received, and how many questions now surround the election of 2020,” Dobbs said. “Biden won 212 few or counties than Barack Obama back in 2012, 212 fewer counties. Yet, supposedly he gained more than 13 million votes than did the former president, 13 million more votes while not coming close to the number of counties. How could that be possible? ”
After reports updating the latest developments in the Trump campaign’s legal challenges in several key states, Dobbs addressed the president directly.
“If I may, Mr. President, the problem here is that you’re not just fighting fraud any more than you were just fighting the Russia hoax,” he said.
“That was an effort, not a hoax, to overthrow your presidency. Not a hoax. An outright effort to overthrow the presidency of the United States that went on from the time you won the office to the time right now,” he added. “The irregularities in this year’s election are not just fraud, electoral or voter, they are another attempt to overthrow the president of the United States.”
Speaking with attorney Sidney Powell, Dobbs asserted that “crimes that have been committed” and that the president needs to take “dramatic action” on the election. Interviewing Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton, Dobbs accused the FBI and the Department of Justice of being “absolutely acquiescent to voter fraud, electoral fraud, and worse, what may be a foreign assault on the country for all we know.”
Fitton agreed, saying Barr “talks a good game” but has not come through, to which Dobbs pushed back a bit.
“I don’t think he talks a good game, Tom. I think he’s made a couple of timely statements perhaps, but he doesn’t even talk a good game. He is not involved in a game,” the Fox Business host said.
“This is an attack on the United States, whether it is from enemies domestic or foreign, whether it is both, I don’t know. But I can tell you this: for the Justice Department and the FBI to do nothing in the face of obvious, obvious fraud and the effort to rig elections across this country? This is stupefying,” he exclaimed.
Republicans should be “walking into every state house and saying ‘this will not stand, we’re going to vote again,'” Dobbs added, going on to rail against the “Republicans in Name Only” who have been “no help” to Trump.
“Where in the hell are the Republicans when we’ve got a battle for the White House underway?” he asked during a segment speaking with U.S. Rep. Matt Gaetz.
“I don’t know what you do with a government whose Justice Department doesn’t work for the people, its FBI doesn’t work for the people,” Dobbs told the Florida Republican. “They’re corrupt, they’re crooked, and the deep state is committed to everything this country stands against.”
Dobbs slammed the “deep state” as he spoke with former Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who chaired the House Oversight Committee.
“The Democrats and the deep state this time have put it in our faces,” Dobbs said. “They have said, you know, ‘We’re going to do this, and you’re going to watch us, and you’re going to see us, and you can’t do a damn thing about it because, you know why? Your leaders won’t do a damn thing about it.’ And they’re right.”
“The Republicans won’t even raise their voices to say ‘you’re, you know, you’re screwing this up pretty good. But you know what? We’re not going to raise our voices this time,'” Dobbs added, speaking of the election irregularities in battleground states.
“I mean, think about this president. He has been persecuted, he’s had everything in the world thrown at him. He is responsible for us knowing about the corruption in the FBI, the Department of Justice, our federal court system, our intelligence agencies, and now in our electoral system,” he continued.
“When is too much corruption too damn much?” Dobbs demanded.
