Jeanine Pirro is Being Mocked On Twitter for Making Up A Nancy Pelosi Story

During her utterly absurd phone call with President Trump, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro played to the typical Fox News scripting when she falsely suggested that Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was hobnobbing with Democratic colleagues in Puerto Rico over the weekend. After her claim was easily debunked. Pirro walked back her story on Twitter.

During my exclusive interview with Pres Trump I said Speaker Pelosi was in Puerto Rico with a bunch of her Democrat [sic] colleagues, she wrote. I based that on numerous reports that turned out to be wrong. The Speaker’s office says she has been in DC all weekend and I take them at their word.

But since remorse and accountability are not really grounds for firing at Fox News, Twitter users took Pirro to task for refusing to offer an actual apology for this massively irresponsible “reporting.”


One user took note of her terrific non-apology while another Twitter user was just as blunt without writing anything at all.

But perhaps the best tweet was one that pointed out the sheer fact of doing very basic verifiability so as to prevent non-apology tweets in the first place.

Pelosi was scheduled to attend the premiere of Hamilton on the devasted island of Puerto Rico this weekend, but she didn’t actually attend. Had Pirro simply contacted the speaker’s office in the first place, she wouldn’t have had to make this utterly inane no-apology tweet in the first place.
