On Friday’s “The Willis Report” on the Fox Business Network, during a preview segment for his own show, FBN host Lou Dobbs turned the tables on the criticism aimed at The Daily Caller’s Neil Munro for interrupting President Barack Obama on Friday during his speech in the Rose Garden at the White House.

According to Dobbs, Munro did the right thing because the president ultimately took no questions following his statement about his new immigration policy.

“Well I think it’s as funny as can be for this reason — Neil Munro of The Daily Caller, the gentleman asking the question, the White House would argue he was not being a gentleman, the president responding it’s not time for questions,” Dobbs said. “Well, the fact is after he made his statement, the president took no questions.”

In fact, Dobbs said Obama had been the rude one.

“So, Neil Munro had the thing pretty well figured out,” he said. “It was going to be his only opportunity. He took the opportunity and you should have — I don’t know if you had the opportunity to go on Twitter and listen to the clucking of all of the people going, ‘It’s against the decorum of the White House and it’s rude to the president.’ What’s rude is the president not speaking to the American people and taking the questions of the White House press.”
