Fox News Host Lou Dobbs Created A Viewer Poll About Trump's Leadership That Is Giving The Internet Some Serious North Korea Vibes

If you know one thing about Fox News host Lou Dobbs, it's likely that his support for President Trump is unconditional and unwavering in the face of even the most shameful, shocking scandals (of which there have been many).

Even as President Trump's mismanagement of COVID-19 has sent the country into a state of panic and isolation, Dobbs can't help himself.


He posted a poll to Twitter asking how people felt about the President's performance.

The options he gave as potential responses seemed like the kind of thing you'd see in a dictatorship like North Korea.

Twitter was pretty disturbed by the levels of Dobbs' devotion.



The poll seemed more like a parody one might see on TV.



It's important to remember, however, how many real people actually watch Lou Dobbs and trust what he says.

Even if it's a tiny minority of the total population, that could amount to millions and millions of people influenced.


It's also worth noting how many scientists would never sign on to such a clearly biased source of information.


The internet agreed: it's time for Lou Dobbs to go.



Other polls posted by Dobbs also seemed primed to misinform the American public.


It's OK if you love Dear Leader, Lou, but if you don't want to hear the truth, don't bother posting a poll.
