As more package bombs were discovered in numerous locations Thursday morning, Fox Business host Lou Dobbs sent out three angry tweets suggesting that the entire bomb scare was nothing more than “fake news.”
Though he later deleted two of the tweets, HuffPost managed to get screenshots of them:
Dobbs is the latest right-wing media host suggesting that the bombs are nothing more than a “false flag” operation created to make President Donald Trump look bad and help Democrats in the 2018 midterms. Radio host Rush Limbaugh said Wednesday:
“Republicans just don’t do this sort of thing.
“Even though every event, like mass shootings, remember, every mass shooting there is, the Democrats in the media try to make everybody think right off the bat that some tea partier did it, or some talk radio fan did it, or some Fox News viewer did it. Turns out, it’s never, ever the case.”
The one Dobbs tweet that he didn’t delete was quickly deluged with criticism from others on social media:
Why are you such an idiot. Even for you this stupid on all levels. Jesus.

Don’t they have a job to do to figure out who’s sending these? Are you so mighty that you think the FBI owes YOU what exactly each contains? What has this world come to? You’re an entitled prick

Seriously, if Megyn Kelly can be taken off the air for her comment, @FoxBusiness should definitely take Dobbs off air for calling the attempted assassination of 2 former Presidents fake without proof. #Dobbs #MAGA #FireLouDobbs

What is wrong with you. The only “hoax” is your twitter account.

Maybe on his show this evening, Lou can also inform all of us where he placed what was left of his tiny, coal-black soul.
