Fox’s Lou Dobbs thinks something is odd about the Secret Service protecting Hillary Clinton from protesters. Or, at least, he wants you to think so.
As The Washington Post reported, “Secret Service agents surrounded Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton after animal-rights protesters created a disturbance at a rally in Las Vegas on August 4.” The Post provided a video to go with it, which is below. In it, you can see Clinton joking, “Apparently these people are here to protest Trump because Trump and his kids [as hunters] have killed a lot of animals. So thank you for making that point.”
Speaking to guest John Bolton, a Trump supporter, Dobbs said, “I want to show you a tape that’s now becoming very important for this presidential campaign. This is Hillary Clinton, August 4th in Las Vegas, and she has just had trouble there.”
Dobbs failed to note that Clinton stopped talking because a bunch of animal rights activists, close to the stage, started to yell in protest.
That is obviously why the Secret Service rushed to the stage.
Dobbs also cut out the end of the video where Clinton joked about about the protesters. Instead, he and Bolton began suggesting the video revealed a sinister cover-up about Clinton’s health.
Dobbs: I want to ask your opinion about what just happened because the man, ostensibly a Secret Service agent. We have found out subsequently that he's a medical doctor who was there apparently attending to the Democratic nominee.
Your reaction to what you saw and whether or not it suggests that we need to know far more about her medical condition?
Bolton: Well, I’ve never seen anything like it before. Presidential candidates are confronted with hecklers and demonstrators in their audiences all the time and quite properly we ask the Secret Service to do what’s necessary to protect them.
But I’ve never seen a stage manager come onto a stage like that, directing agents around. If he wasn’t Secret Service, who is he to tell these people, agents, clearly, to move away and let the speech continue? There’s something here we don’t know about and, as I say, I’ve never seen it before to protect Hillary Clinton from some hecklers. There is something here we are not being told.
Dobbs: As usual it seems quite a bit we're not being told. But hopefully we will find out.
Dobbs didn’t mention whether he or anyone on his show had done anything to try and find out what he thought was such important information. Apparently, digging for facts and truth is someone else’s job.
Watch it below, from the August 9 Lou Dobbs Tonight, on the Fox Business Network.
Feel a bit better now.
This is feeding wild conspiracy theories. A conservative just told me today Hillary had her medical records shredded. Lou Dobbs is just piggybacking on the hysteria. Seeing what he’s programmed to see.
And why the f—k bring it up to John Bolton like he can s—t out a medical degree on the spot?
Seriously America, how much longer must we suffer FOX and all the bullshit they spew?
The writer of the column says he sees the same kind of atmosphere now at Trump rallies. The same vicious intolerance.
