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?

Dear Reader,

This feels like the most important fundraising drive since I've been CEO of Mother Jones, with staggeringly high stakes and so much uncertainty. In "News Is Just Like Waste Management," I try to unpack the reality we all face and how we can rise to the challenge. If you're able to, this is a critical moment to support Mother Jones’ nonprofit journalism: We need to raise $400,000 to help cover the vital reporting projects we have planned, and right now is no time to pull back.
