Lou Dobbs is a Crackpot

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis, the election, and more, subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter.


I see that Lou Dobbs is continuing to take seriously the “birthers” — the clowns who claim that Barack Obama wasn’t really born in Hawaii and is therefore president illegally.  I’m very pleased to hear this, since it means maybe — just maybe — it will finally make obvious to the broader world just how far off his rocker Dobbs has gone.  If it does, it will have been worth it.

POSTSCRIPT: And as long as we’re on the subject, note that this guy is my congressman.  Dresses nice, doesn’t he?

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
