Lou Dobbs is hopping mad about one thing he saw in Trump’s SOTU: ‘Old, liberal, hackneyed language’

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs caught a glimpse of the advanced copy for the president’s State of the Union address tonight, and he doesn’t like what he sees. Not one bit.


Lou Dobbs’ guest was Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL), who has been at the forefront of the “Release the Memo” drive.

“I want to turn to if we may just one of the pieces from the president if we can get that up on the screen now the president will say struggling communities especially immigrant communities will be helped by immigrant policies focused on the best workers and American families,” Dobbs said.

“Your reaction this is first of all, a sentence whose syntax is a little strained and could be more eloquent ,whoever the writer was, but what sense does this make… talks about unifying the country and with struggling communities and starts dividing the country. This is old, if you will, liberal language,” Dobbs railed.

“Well, I think that the president always throughout the course of his campaign talked about an America where everyone could do better and the folks on the political left, they have to divide the country,” Gaetz replied.

“You see, Lou they don’t want an immigration solution,” he continued. “They want to keep immigration around as an issue to rally their base and divide Americans. So, I think the president is working on a way to unify Americans.

“But I would warn him, this was not an election about DACA,” Gaetz added. “If this was an election about DACA Hillary Clinton would have won it. Think is an election about the rule of law and border security and I’ll be listening for those border security themes tonight and to ensure that we really preserve the rule of law in our immigration system and have a system that works for America first not the rest of the world.”

“Well said, congressman,” Dobbs responded, “and the truth is, DACA was in the campaign, it was President Trump saying ‘no DACA.’ It was President Trump saying ‘no amnesty.’ It was President Trump saying ‘build the wall.’ Based on what I’ve heard from the White House so far, I don’t think that we’re going to hear anything about a wall. We’re going to hear about trust funds that don’t have money and there’s no trust for such schemes, and if he disappoints the base or betrays the base there’s hell to pay come November.”

“Well you’re absolutely right,” Gaetz agreed. “People voted for this president because they were tired of seeing their hard earned tax dollars go in the form of entitlements to illegal aliens. It costs our country over $100 billion a year, Lou.”

“And that’s why it’s so important to make sure that we focus on E- verify,” Gaetz continued. “We focus on ending chain migration. We focus on ensuring that we don’t build magnets that draw people across our borders illegally and I do think we’ll hear about the wall tonight about the need to ensure that’s a critical component of our immigration reform strategy, but we absolutely cannot accept as a premise that we’re going to do amnesty today and enforcement tomorrow.”

“My voters won’t accept that and I don’t think the president’s voters will either,” Gaetz added.

“And I hope the president won’t suggest such a thing,” Dobbs said. “That would be disappointing to all of us. Congressman great to have you with us we thank you so much.”
