Fox Business Guest Christian Whiton Spouts Sexist Nonsense On 'Lou Dobbs'

The former Trump administration State Department official took a dumb detour to defend the president.

Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs criticized the “left wing media” on his show Tuesday for questioning President Donald Trump’s “steadfast” support for Saudi Arabia after the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Trump pledged his loyalty to Saudi Arabia even if the country’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, ordered the killing of The Washington Post columnist, who was critical of the regime.

Dobbs asked his guest, Christian Whiton, a former State Department official in the Trump administration, for his take. For some reason, Whiton took a dumb and offensive swipe at women to make his point.

“Yeah, you see these journalists and these others, these commentators shrieking at the president like it’s some freshman seminar in feminist literature at Smith College,” he said, drawing laughter from Dobbs.

Check out the sexist blather above.

CORRECTION: An earlier version misstated Dobbs’ network affiliation as Fox News.
