Fox News Pulls “Judge Jeanine” After Remarks About Omar and Hijabs; Trump Wants Her Back On Air

15

Fox News weekend host Jeanine Pirro’s show didn’t air a week after her comments suggesting Rep. Ilhan Omar may not be 100 percent loyal to the United States Constitution because she wears a Muslim head covering. No explanation was given.

Pirro’s show, “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” was replaced Saturday night by other programming. The Fox News schedule for the upcoming weekend doesn’t include the show.

An email seeking comment was sent Sunday to Fox representatives.

President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday morning about Pirro’s absence, saying she should be brought back.

“Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them,” one of his tweets said.

Fox News had “strongly condemned” Pirro’s commentary on Omar, the first-term representative from Minnesota.

In the same opener where she called Rep. Nancy Pelosi “stupid,” Pirro said this while taking aim at Omar:

“Think about this. She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party…So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested.”

Then in what sounded like an accusation in the form of the question, Pirro opined: “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”

Fox said Pirro’s views didn’t reflect the network and it had addressed the issue with her, but didn’t specify what that entailed.

Omar, in a tweet, thanked Fox for the statement, saying no one should question a person’s commitment to the Constitution because of a person’s faith or country of origin. Omar is a Somali immigrant.

Pirro said her intention had been to start a debate, but that being Muslim didn’t mean someone didn’t support the Constitution. She invited Omar to her show.

Pirro is the former district attorney from New York’s Westchester County.

  1. So Omar is free to question lawmakers “dual allegiance” because they support Israel, the only Democracy in the Middle East and gets away with it. But how dare anyone question where her loyalty lies! This country is continuing it’s hike down a steep slippery incline.

  2. Trump tweets won’t do anything. It’s all about the sponsors. If the sponsors bail she’ll be out. If the sponsors stay on board she’ll be back. Trump tweets not gonna mean anything

  3. Trump “doesnt know” who David Duke is. Trump “doesnt know” what Steve King said. Trump thinks neo nazis are “fine people” and Trump “doesnt know” if white nationalism is on the rise. What every intelligent unbiased person now knows is that Trump tolerates racism and holds bigoted views. Trump is a lowlife and it should come as no surprise that he supports all types of bigots like himself.

  4. As long as you say nice stuff about Trump he will support and defend you. Makes no difference if you are Putin, Kim, MBS, Duterte, or David Duke. Stroke his ego and you count on him to be there for you

  5. Alhough I don’t have TV, I’ve seen brief clips of Mrs Piro and either she’s acting or she’s always angry. Which is it? Is she still upset about her former husband’s crimes?

  6. I’ve heard her use strionger language many times she’s great and Fox is looking for excuses to dump their conservative hosts
    Remember who owns Fox

  7. Jeanine Pirro’s husband is a convict. I believe she was also accused of crimes by prosecutors, but she beat the rap.

    Maybe Pirro thinks Boro Park and Williamsburgh should be kicked out of the US because of all the women wearing sheitels and all the men in black hats and long coats that button on the “wrong” side.

  8. Fox is great. And Pirro is actually pretty accurate about Omar. I a man not sure about other talkbacks, and I am surprised to see self-hatred in the frum community. Dems are anti-Israel and against Torah values, including some Noahide laws, such as the prohibition of sodomy.

  9. She is not “conservative”….she is just a dumb, shrill loudmouth who screeches about whatever she thinks Trump wants to hear. At one point, she was promoting herself to become attorney general to replace “little Jeff sessions” but the WH staff were laughing hysterically about the notion she considered herself qualified. She is on Fox on motzi Shabbos at 9pm when no one is watching Fox except the poor neshamas who can’t find where the kids left the remote to change the channel. She may resurface on the one of the half dozen looney tunes far right networks that offer themselves for free to the cable TV providers anxious to fill their 900 slots.

  10. @Uncle Mo:
    Very well said!!!!

    @Moisheingulas:
    Kraizykanoiey never stopped with his nonsense, so he doesn’t have to restart!!

    BTW, Kraizykanoey: where is your partner @Godalhadorha?????!!!!

    It’s very unfortunate that Fox, which was the only fair network, fell for the lefts stupidity!!!!

  11. As always, Trump ignores the issues and heads for twitter instead. A much more normal and effective argument would be to point out the utter hypocrisy, to point out that Omer is but getting a taste of her own medicine. It was actually a smart and insightful comment from Jeannine, which should be agreed upon with anyone who has half a brain (not libs, obviously). Instead Trump tells them to not be PC and rants. I recall he was upset of the Dems’ “cowardly” resolution when not condemning Omar. Why the big deal? Does Omar have to be PC?
    So now we have 2 hypocrites. Those condemning Jeanine and not Omar, and Trump condemning Omar but not Jeanine.
