LOU DOBBS (HOST): Also tonight, the shameful politicization of Puerto Rico's Hurricane death toll, and only President Trump has had the guts to call out the Dems and national left wing media types, who have blindly accepted an amazing tortured inflation of the death toll, almost 50 times higher than the original count, and with scant evidence to support any of it. How does that count go from dozens in the days after the storm to almost 3,000 nearly a year later? Well, it involves as many academicians as humanly possible in the effort, and then you watch the entire exercise become a farce.
Following his program, Lou Dobbs tweeted the segment from his show claiming “The Hurricane Maria death tolls have been inflated.” His tweet was then retweeted by President Donald Trump.
