Lou Dobbs Rips ‘Precious’ Paul Ryan for Not Backing Jim Jordan: ‘Smug, Pretentious’ Puppet

Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) is being accused of knowing about sexual abuse when he was a coach at Ohio State University. Multiple former wrestlers are speaking out and saying there’s no way Jordan did not know what was going on. Jordan denied any knowledge of abuse during an interview last week, and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI) put out a statement through a spokesperson saying he will wait for the findings of the inquiry:

This statement angered Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs, who mockingly declared tonight, “This is how precious Ryan is.”

Dobbs said, “I’m sure he doesn’t consider Jordan to be a colleague, because the Speaker, I think, thinks of himself as somehow royalty of some kind.”

Dobbs read through the statement from Ryan’s office and asked, “Who thinks like that? Who talks like that? Who writes like that? A smug, pretentious absolute puppet of the establishment, that’s who!”

“President Trump and numerous Republicans have come out in support of Congressman Jordan,” he concluded, “but not Paul Ryan, the precious darling.”

Dobbs, of course, has repeatedly expressed his antipathy for Ryan and has said multiple times this and last year that he should get out of the Speaker’s office.
