Watch Rep. Andy Biggs, Political Civility Crusader, Sit Idle as Lou Dobbs Says Dems Are Telling Americans to ‘Go To Hell’

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) has been outspoken in calling for political civility. In November, the Arizona Congressman penned an editorial on the subject for the Daily Caller.

“Political discourse today is rotten,” Biggs wrote — lamenting the state of affairs in Washington. “Some say it is the worst ever.”

The lack of civility infuriates Biggs so much that he actually sponsored a motion to censure Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) following her rant against various Trump officials at a rally in June.

Thursday on Fox Business, Biggs was given a chance to put his words into action — as Lou Dobbs raged against Democrats over the border fight.

Here’s how that went:

“[Democrats are] saying, point blank, the rest of America can go to hell,” Dobbs said.

“Yep,” Biggs said in agreement.

Dobbs continued, “Their constituency: Illegal immigrants. Their constituency: The employers of those who exploit illegal immigrants in this country and have for 30 years. There’s no mystery here. They’re also blocking the president in fulfilling his last major campaign promise to the voters, which is to build that wall. And they know that if he builds that wall, if he secures that border, he will be an absolute electoral juggernaut in 2020.”

“Right,” Biggs said, nodding. “Exactly right.”
