‘This Is A War, Dammit’: Lou Dobbs Rips ‘Flatfooted’ Trump Staff


On Tuesday, Lou Dobbs ran to President Donald Trump‘s defense on his Fox Business Network program, and took his communications staff to task for apparently not doing a good enough job.

“The all-too-civil, low-energy Trump White House communications team remains flatfooted and failing,” Dobbs said. “They need to change that.”

The Fox Business host asserted that the President’s flacks “aren’t obviously fighters; they obviously aren’t street smart; and they haven’t been strategic. And they must change all of that.”

Dobbs underlined, “They must become all of that and much more, because the determined forces of evil that surround this White House are trying to destroy the Trump presidency; and will settle, it appears, for nothing less. This is a war, dammit; so get to war.”

The commentator concluded his commentary with a quote from ancient Chinese tactician Sun Tzu: “‘Know thyself, know thy enemy; a thousand battles, a thousand victories.’ Begin, please!”

Earlier, Dobbs outlined that “our president is under constant barrage from all quarters: by the vapid, but still venomous Dems on Capitol Hill; the left-wing national media; the toxic GOP elites and much of orthodoxy who hate almost as much as the left; and the deep state denizens that include some of the wealthiest and most powerful people in this nation.”

Just before launching his attack on the President’s communications, the host contended that “this President deserves the full commitment of his White House staff, who should be fighting as hard as the President — for him, his agenda and this country.”
