Lou Dobbs’ fans and fellow supporters of President Donald Trump are standing behind the longtime Fox Business host after the ratings-winning show that he had anchored for a decade was canceled Friday.
The veteran cable news host on Friday and Saturday shared numerous tweets including one from a person who had posted a statement from Trump, whose own account was dropped from Twitter that voiced support for both him and his show as the outcry grew about Fox’s decision, reports The Hill.
“Lou Dobbs is and was great,” Trump said in the statement, shared by Women For America First Chairwoman Amy Kremer. “Nobody loves America more than Lou. He had a large and loyal following that will be watching closely for his next move, and that following includes me,” Trump said.
Dobbs was one of Trump’s biggest supporters in conservative media, more than likely because of the incredible on the former president did with our economy. Dobbs often chided other Republicans who he thought didn’t defend the former president enough as he was attacked daily for four years by the Left. Dobbs also talked about election fraud after the 2020 election that he felt caused Trump to lose. Pretty much everyone felt Trump won and it was stolen from him but the Woke Supremacy now will silence you if you have anything to say about it.
The host retweeted some tweets that speculated that the Fox network was in a tailspin and was in its own “race with itself for the bottom.” I personally believe the beginning of the end was when Fox hired former speaker of the house RINO Republican Paul Ryan who was a Never Trumper and hated Trump’s guts who allegedly said during a Republican conference call after the election that he would never support a President Trump, and he stayed true to his word. Once Ryan was hired and put on the Board one of the first things he did was told news anchors to stop supporting Donald Trump so strongly. That was the beginning of their downfall.
Many Twitter fans of Dobbs called him a patriot and referred to the host as a “GOAT,” which is in an acronym for “greatest of all time.”
Dobbs replied to Trump’s statement that was passed on by Amy Kremer the co-founder of Women For Trump, posting, “Thanks for your kind words, Mr. President. God bless you and all the American patriots who make this country great.”

Fox News in an epically stupid move canceled “Lou Dobbs Tonight,” which the network had bragged was the highest-rated program on Fox Business channel. The show recently celebrated its 100th straight week of beating CNBC in the ratings according to Nielsen. That was not a brilliant move.
It turns out Dobbs, along with Judge Jeanine Pirro and Maria Bartiromo fell victim to the standard leftist pre-counter attack being sued by Smartmatic for $2.7 billion in a defamation suit. Dobbs can’t go anywhere else yet, because even though the network late him go and said he will not be back on the network they still have him under contract.
Fox’s lawyers said that the lawsuit doesn’t have merit and the network will fight it in court. On that, they are absolutely right because in order to win a defamation suit there are three major hurdles you have to overcome. The first is that you have to prove that what was said is false. If there is any evidence that data was swapped by Smartmatic software then that hurdle is not satisfied and the suit ends there. If they can prove that what Dobbs said was false they then have to prove that the host knew it was false and said it anyway. They can’t possibly do that because there is no evidence that Dobbs believed what he was saying was false and he said it anyway. Plus anybody who knows Lou Dobbs knows he would never do that. And if by some miracle they were able to get over that hurdle then they have to prove that because of what Dobbs said it caused the company to lose money. So this lawsuit is just for revenge and to make it appear that Lou Dobbs, and anyone else that they are suing for that matter, wronged them. They want the public perception to believe that they are the victim.
