Asshole of the Month: Lou Dobbs
Trump’s downfall—and it is coming—will no doubt be due to his enormous, hypersensitive ego. Like a psychotic pit bull, he turns on everyone eventually, even his closest supporters, if they fail to kiss his bloated ass with enough blind sincerity.
From Chris Christie to Rex Tillerson to Jeff Sessions and the long casualty list of fired subordinates in his musical-chairs administration, Trump can tolerate nothing less than divine- right emperor worship. He’s even started growling at Fox News lately, because Juan Williams dared to criticize his China policy, Neil Cavuto has been reaming him on the deficit, and others at the network have slammed him for the blatant and divisive racism of “Send her back!” When Fox had the audacity to publish polls in August showing Trump’s disapproval rating skyrocketing, he flipped his lid. “Fox has changed, and my worst polls have always been from Fox,” he whined. “There’s something going on at Fox. I’ll tell you right now. And I’m not happy with it.” Fox is supposed to be my brown – nosing Ministry of Truth. Now they’re even broadcasting naked facts! What the fuck?
But there’s one loyalist at Fox who will never desert, who pushes his nose in as deep as Trump wants and tells us he smells not bullshit but sweet Shinola up the POTUS ass crack—Lou Dobbs. In a conversation with fellow toady Sean Hannity about Trump, Dobbs said, “Well, he’s pretty close to perfect, Sean. I’m serious.” And later: “President Trump has done more than any President in modern history…Mr. Trump is in a league of his own.”
Seriously? Trump perfect? Hell, even most of those who agree with his policies admit that the man is a crass, conceited jerk, almost illiterate, who spends the majority of his day tweeting insults and responding to petty criticisms like a thin-skinned high school prima donna. Has there ever been a more embarrassing, undignified, imperfect occupant of the Oval Office?
