On his Fox Business program Tuesday evening, Lou Dobbs had a friendly discussion with GOP guru Ed Rollins in which he felt sufficiently confident to declare his belief that Donald Trump was the best man to hold the office of president “in my lifetime.”
Dobbs — for the record — was born on September 24, 1945 during the unexpected presidency of Harry S. Truman. At 71, his life and career have overlapped with Ike Eisenhower, Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan.
But I guess they’re out the window.
Trump, said Dobbs was, “bedeviled and beleaguered from every — from 360 degrees, by media, the opposition party, his own party establishment,” adding that “He is, I think, at this point a more accepted and possibly the strongest individual to serve in the Oval Office in my lifetime, and I’m including Ronald Reagan. He’s established himself as the leader of this nation.”
The moment came as part of a monologue of effusive praise from Dobbs for Donald Trump’s U.N. speech in which he threatened to utterly destroy North Korea. In addition to Dobbs, plaudits have also come from, Joe Scarborough, David Ignatius, and Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
… Sometimes Trump makes strange bedfellows.
