Fox’s Jeanine Pirro Spent the Weekend Blasting Ruth Bader Ginsburg
In normal times, when a Supreme Court Justice passes away, their are mourned and celebrated for the work they did. In today’s hyper-partisan environment, though, thoughts immediately turn towards who their replacement would be. On Friday, the hosts of Fox News could barely wait to talk about who would replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
And unsurprisingly, Jeanine Pirro took her comments way farther than most. While the country mourned the death of Ginsburg on Friday night, Pirro blasted the judge as a “political operative.”
The judge made the comments during an appearance on Tucker Carlson’s show. The host asked, “There are certain Supreme Court justices who might have strong political views but who on pure legal grounds sometimes find themselves voting with the other side. You know, who are principled enough to cross over. Was she one of those? What was her crossover percentage, do you know?”
I can tell you is that she was motivated by her beliefs in women’s rights and activism,” replied Pirro. “I mean, I was a judge myself and there were cases that I disagreed on but the law and precedent dictated what position I would take.”
The Fox host closed her comments, “Her comments about the president before he became president, Donald Trump, very critical. She was more than just a justice, she was a political activist. ”
