Fox News has always been on board with pushing the Donald Trump myth. The decades-old idea that Trump was a competent businessman, executive, and leader. And few bought into that lie more than Judge Jeanine Pirro.
During a discussion on Tuesday’s episode of The Five, Geraldo Rivera suggested that Putin didn’t invade Ukraine while Trump was President because the Russian leader was already getting everything he wanted. This made Pirro blow a gasket.
“How do you know that Putin wasn’t playing Trump?” asked Rivera. “How do you know.” Pirro exploded, “Oh, stop! He wasn’t playing Trump. He didn’t invade whilst Trump was president! It’s not about loving Trump, it’s about the fact that Trump had everybody against the wall.”
Rivera responded, “How do you know that Putin didn’t think Trump would give him Ukraine anyway?” Pirro again snapped, “I don’t give a damn what Putin thinks, I only care what Putin did! And he was a wuss when Trump was president! And that’s the end of it.”
