Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs on Friday lashed out at a federal judge who ordered the White House to reinstate the press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta.
“Outrageously puerile reasoning and ruling: Our district courts are filled with farcical excuses for judges,” Dobbs tweeted on Friday, linking to a story about the ruling.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly, who was appointed by Donald Trump, temporarily restored Acosta’s press credentials after the White House revoked them following a spat with the president last week.
Fox News, the sister network of Fox Business, had filed an amicus brief supporting Acosta.
“Fox News supports CNN in its legal effort to regain its White House reporter’s press credential,” Fox News announced. “Secret Service passes for White House journalists should never be weaponized.”
