Lou Dobbs Swipes at Grassley for Concerns About DHS Purge: He ‘Apparently Likes the Deep State’

Fox Business’ Lou Dobbs tonight went off on Senator Chuck Grassley (R- IA) for going against President Donald Trump on the “purge” happening at DHS.

As Dobbs opened his show tonight, he said Grassley “appears to be losing his grips, perhaps his mind, decrying the president’s much-needed purge of ineffectual DHS leadership.”

“Grassley apparently likes the deep state,” Dobbs remarked, “and many of the permanent bureaucracy.”

He showed the video of Grassley sharing his concerns about what a big “mistake” it would be for Trump to “go that far down into the bureaucracy to fire good people like that”

Grassley and Senator Ron Johnson both appeared on screen accompanied by the chyron WEAK-KNEED RINO RESISTANCE. Johnson had some mild concerns over DHS too but, per USA Today, he also partly defended POTUS.

Later on in the show, Dobbs remarked, “I couldn’t believe Chuck Grassley, his comments today… He doesn’t seem to care whether or not they’re in control of that border.”
