Fox News Continues Suspension For Judge Jeanine Pirro For 2nd Week After Rep. Ilhan Omar Comment
Judge Jeanine Pirro’s suspension from her Fox News show, Justice with Judge Jeanine, will continue for second week after anti-Muslim comments she made on her show on March 9. Pirro suggested that Muslim Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) does not adhere to the U.S. Constitution because she wears a hijab.
“Think about it: Omar wears a hijab. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Pirro questioned.
After Fox’s condemnation of her remarks, she issued a statement insisting she was just trying to “ask a question and start a debate.”
Pirro’s show will not air for the second straight week in a row and will be replaced with Scandalous: The Trial of William Kennedy Smith at 9 p.m. ET.
“We are not commenting on internal scheduling matters.” a network representative responded.
President Donald Trump met with Pirro following the incident before taking to Twitter to weigh in on the matter.
Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox …..

Pirro, a former Westchester County District Attorney, has long been close friends with the President and the Trump family and had even appeared on stage at his rallies.
