Lou Dobbs attacks Evan McMullin as member of the ‘Mormon Mafia’ — and Twitter responds

A series of tweets by Fox Business anchor Lou Dobbs recently gained attention on Twitter after he used the term “Mormon Mafia” to attack critics of Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

Dobbs, a Trump supporter, took aim at independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin. McMullin, a Mormon, leads Trump in several Utah polls.

Dobbs has used the term “Mormon Mafia” before in order to attack Republican lawmakers who he feels have not adequately defended their party’s nominee.

Many Twitter users poked fun at Dobbs’ tweets.

A spokesperson for Fox Business did not immediately return TheBlaze’s request for comment about Dobbs’ tweets.
