Fox Business Network’s Lou Dobbs has not been a fan of Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) for some time now, probably since back during the 2016 campaign when Ryan refused to board the Trump train. However, Dobbs’s stand against Ryan has recently found a whole new level of agitá as the Speaker continues to falter in his efforts to pass conservative legislation, and he still seems unable to bring himself wholeheartedly to support the president.
Perhaps if Ryan were doing one or the other of these things, Dobbs could stomach having him as the leader of House Republicans. But Ryan’s inability to do either has left Dobbs without recourse, and the Fox News personality is now calling for Ryan’s head.
Dobbs started by suggesting Ryan should resign after audio of him affirming that he would never support Trump leaked out.
