Fox Sacks Judge Jeanine Over Omar Criticism – That’s When President Trump Stepped In!

Share this story:

President Trump just tweeted about Fox News pulling Judge Jeanine off the air over her comments against Ilhan Omar.

Fox News isn’t saying whether this is permanent yet:

Fox News is set to air a repeat episode of a documentary series in place of “Justice with Jeanine” as the host faces controversy over her comments about Muslims.

The network will air an episode of “Scandalous,” according to Variety. A spokesperson wouldn’t discuss future scheduling plans when contacted.

“We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters,” a network spokesperson wrote in an email.

And if you don’t know what Jeanine did here you go:

During an episode last Saturday, Pirro questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) hijab was “indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution.”

Her comments were condemned by Fox News leadership, which issued a statement saying Pirro had been reprimanded.

“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said in a statement days later. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”

I think Jeannine probably did step over the line in her criticism, but it’s a little hypocritical of Fox News to let their opinion hosts pretty much go off the rails over everything but slap her on the hand over this. I have a feeling there won’t be any lasting consequences for her transgression. Especially once Trump makes a few phone calls…
