Trump Told Homeland Security To Take Its Orders From Lou Dobbs, Former Official Says

President Donald Trump told officials from the Department of Homeland Security to get their marching orders by listening to Fox Business host Lou Dobbs “every night,” former DHS chief of staff Miles Taylor told Anderson Cooper on Friday. Dobbs, an effusive supporter of Trump, was basically the “shadow chief of staff” for the department, Taylor said in the CNN interview. “The president would call us and ... he would say, ‘Why the hell didn’t you watch Lou Dobbs last night? You need to listen to Lou. What Lou says is what I want to do,’” Taylor said. “So if Lou Dobbs peddled a conspiracy theory on late-night television or made an erroneous claim about what should be done ... at the border ... the president wanted us to be tuning in every night,” he added. Taylor said he didn’t have time to watch Dobbs while the 250,000-person DHS was “trying to guard against some of the most severe threats to this country.” “We can’t be watching Lou Dobbs and taking our orders from him, but this happened on a regular basis,” Taylor said. Taylor served in the Department of Homeland Security from 2017 to 2019, including as Chief of Staff to former DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Taylor said earlier this week that Trump once asked if America could swap Puerto Rico for Greenland and that he frequently made disparaging comments about the Puerto Rican people.

wtf?

As Donald Trumps niece told us in no uncertain terms; "He is too dangerous to be allowed anywhere near the White House."

How you can be an American who believes in freedom and the Constitution and say the kind of **** that comes out of Lou Dobb's mouth is a total mystery. And the fact that the White House is taking its direction from him should be considered a five fire alram.
