“Lou Dobbs was the sort of shadow chief of staff of the Trump administration. The president would call us and he would say — and pardon my language — he would say, ‘Why the hell didn’t you watch Lou Dobbs last night? You need to listen to Lou. What Lou says is what I want to do.’
“So if Lou Dobbs peddled a conspiracy theory on late-night television or made an erroneous claim about what should be done either at the border or with some law enforcement operation, the president wanted us to be tuning in every night.
“My response to that was I don’t have any time to watch Lou Dobbs in the evening. You’ve got us running a 250,000-person department and we’re trying to guard against some of the most severe threats to this country.
“We can’t be watching Lou Dobbs and taking our orders from him, but this happened on a regular basis.” – Former DHS chief of staff Miles Taylor, today on CNN.
