Changing Her Tune: Watch as Jeanine Pirro Calls Trump Seditionists “Outright Terrorists”
A number of the programs on Fox are willing to push the most outrageous of Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories. Jeanine Pirro’s weekend show, though, might take the cake. The former judge normally pushes whatever story the White House would like it to, regardless of legitimacy.
Even after the attacks on the Capitol building the other day, many Fox hosts defended Trump. Sean Hannity and Laura Ingraham both claimed that Antifa was mixed into the crowd. Jeanine Pirro, surprisingly didn’t take that tact Saturday. The Fox host called the rioters “outright criminals” and told them to stop blaming Antifa.
“I want to be clear. The actions at the United States Capitol three days ago were deplorable, reprehensible, outright criminal. These frightening and repulsive actions represent the most significant breach on our Capitol in over 200 years. And I don’t care with happened in the past and or whether those who did it think the election was stolen. That is not justification. Seventy-five million of us are still angry about the election, but we don’t storm the Capitol.”
The Fox host continued, “And stop looking for other people to blame, including those dirt-bag terrorists antifa. To those of you who did this, you did it, of your own will, and you will be held accountable. Take the veil of politics off. Be totally objective, anyone watching this must condemn it.”
