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.

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.

Published

President Donald Trump's tweets have grown even more erratic than usual lately, as he has promoted baseless murder conspiracy theories about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough and even a video that proclaims "the only good Democrat is a dead Democrat."
