Former President Donald Trump has stated support of Lou Dobbs’ after Fox News ended Dobbs’ evening show. Dobbs was a close ally of Trump at the network, and his departure may lead Trump to be done with Fox News for good.
Trump said, “Lou Dobbs is and was great. 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.”
Fox News’s decision to cancel Dobbs’ show is a bit of a head-scratcher as his show, Lou Dobbs Tonight, was Fox Business’s highest-rated show.
It is possible the decision was made after Smartmatic, an election technology company, filed a lawsuit against Fox News and Lou Dobbs, seeking 2.7 billion in damages.
If Fox let Dobbs go because of a questionable lawsuit filed by Smartmatic, it will further damage the company in the eyes of Trump’s base, which already distrusts Fox News.
If Fox News is willing to let their highest-rated anchor go because of frivolous lawsuits, one has to wonder how long someone like Tucker Carlson will be working at Fox News.
