Fox Host Lou Dobbs Melts Down After Trump-Appointed Judge Sides With CNN’s Jim Acosta
Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs on Friday lambasted U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly, who ordered the White House to reinstate the press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta.
“Outrageously puerile reasoning and ruling: Our district courts are filled with farcical excuses for judges,” Dobbs tweeted on Friday, linking to a story about the ruling.
Kelly, who was appointed by Donald Trump, temporarily restored Acosta’s press credentials after the White House revoked them following a spat with the president last week.
Fox News, the sister network of Fox Business, had filed an amicus brief supporting Acosta.
“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” Fox News announced. “Secret Service passes for White House journalists should never be weaponized.”

Some users were not amused by Dobbs’ tweet and quickly set him straight:

Lou, you are on the wrong side of history. (your own employment history is a joke)
Your future is as dark as your mood.

Dobbs, you are a disgrace to your country. Then there are the dodgy deals you've been involved with that you thought were secret. They aren't anymore. Get used to wearing prison orange.
