One Fox News host just made a power move.
On Friday, Judge Jeanine Pirro, host of Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” went after House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) for her public dislike of President Donald Trump.
Got to be kidding me
Pirro’s comments came during an appearance on Fox & Friends.
“I will never forget when [Pelosi] pointed the finger at that person and said ‘I don’t hate anybody,'” Pirro said. “Are you kidding?”
She continued: “You don’t hate anybody? I mean, go to church and say that — I don’t believe you. You hate Donald Trump [and] you’ve hated him from the moment he got in. And the fact that this was partisan and one party trying to take out a president when we voted him in. That’s not America; that’s not how we do it here.”
Pirro was, of course, referring to the House-led and obviously partisan-driven impeachment of President Trump. But, more specifically, she had in mind the exchanges between Trump and Pelosi that have been taking place since the president’s acquittal this week by the Senate.
After her tantrum at the State of the Union address, in which she tore up the president’s speech, Pelosi attacked Trump the following morning at a press conference after the National Prayer Breakfast. “You’re impeached forever, you are never getting rid of that scar,” she said.
Trump addressed her earlier by holding up newspapers with the word “acquitted” in the headlines, before going on to take some more direct shots at Pelosi.
“I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong, nor do I like people who say ‘I pray for you’ when you know that is not so,” Trump said.
Here, the president was referring to Pelosi’s comments during the impeachment trial when she said that she prays for him and that the Democrats are prayerful.
Pirro blames for the divisiveness that we are now seeing in America largely on Pelosi and the Democrats. “I’ve never seen the country like this and they won’t stop,” she said.
Of course, Pelosi and the Democrats can start to fix the problem by coming out and acknowledging that the acquittal legitimately removes impeachment from President Trump’s resume. But we all know that isn’t going to happen.
