Just days after a guest was banned from “Lou Dobbs Tonight” for his comments about George Soros, Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX) ended his interview Wednesday by saying: “It’s not anti-Semitic to criticize Soros.”

“I’m certainly glad that I didn’t just break away there,” Dobbs wryly responded.

Chris Farrell of Judicial Watch was blacklisted this weekend after he called the State Department “Soros-occupied” and said that the liberal billionaire was somehow funding the migrant “caravan” in a “Lou Dobbs Tonight” episode that aired just after the Pittsburgh synagogue shooting.

Fox Business Network condemned the comments and said they banned Farrell from appearing on the network again.

Incidentally, Gohmert also voiced the idea that Soros is somehow funding the immigrants on Fox News just last week.
