Lou Dobbs Is Mad at Lindsey Graham and Doesn’t Want Anyone to Vote for Him (Video)

Lou Dobbs Is Mad at Lindsey Graham and Doesn’t Want Anyone to Vote for Him (Video)

For those keeping track of political beefs, add Republicans Lou Dobbs and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham to your list. Because on Friday's episode of his Fox Business show, Dobbs fumed about how much he thinks Graham sucks, and openly urged people in Graham's home state to not vote for him in the 2020 election. The anti-Graham rant happened while Dobbs was complaining about one of the big pet issues among the right: the evidence-free accusations that recent efforts by Twitter and Facebook to limit the spread of misinformation and dangerous conspiracy theories somehow amounts to...

But while the debate was notable for a few things: Mike Pence's constant interruptions and time hogging, Mike Pence's weird eye,  and the faces Harris made during the...
