Fox host Lou Dobbs calls on GOP to help Trump secure a second term that's 'rightfully his' despite the failed lawsuits and insufficient electoral votes that say otherwise
Summary List PlacementFox Business host Lou Dobbs on Friday parroted President Donald Trump's claims that the 2020 election was unfair, angrily insisting that accurate election results are "being denied to him." Dobbs, a longtime supporter of Trump, pleaded with Republicans to move more aggressively to defend the president during an interview with GOP Rep. Devin Nunes of California, a former House Intelligence Committee chairman. "The president doesn't want a statue erected to him," Dobbs said. "What he wants is a free and fair election and honest results, and it's being denied to him and we all know that ... Why not just say we're not going to accept the results of this election? It's outrageous." Nunes said that the race shouldn't have been called for President-elect Joe Biden, despite providing no verifiable evidence of any inaccuracies with the vote count. Dobbs pushed back, saying that the GOP wasn't going to bat for the president. "What is the party doing to make certain it isn't called?" he asked. "I see so little animation in the Republican Party on this. It's as if it's just another day at the store and when, in fact, I believe the fate of the republic hangs in the balance here."

Dobbs then claimed that the Democratic Party tried to "intimidate" Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh during his 2018 hearing and accused the party of employing the same tactics regarding the election. "This is an effort to intimidate," he said. "This is an attempt to take over the country and deny this president what is rightfully his, a second term." Despite launching an avalanche of lawsuits in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, and Pennsylvania, the Trump campaign has not had much success with any of the litigation. The lawsuits generally sought to either halt vote counting or toss out subsets of mail-in ballots. Trump has not conceded the race despite falling short of 270 Electoral College votes and continues to write and retweet debunked conspiracy theories on his Twitter account.Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: What it takes to become a backup dancer for Beyoncé
