ED ROLLINS: But again --

DOBBS: it's that simple. By the way, let me add to that. It is also clear that Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan are part of the conspiracy and the coordinated attack on this presidency because they say nothing.

DOBBS: He's been president for just about a year and a half. He has achieved more than any president since FDR in office. He has done unprecedented things in terms of the economy, in terms of simultaneously meeting geopolitical challenges, whether it's China, Russia.
