There are a number of daytime hosts on Fox News that are willing to call Joe Biden the president elect. At nighttime, however, figures like Lou Dobbs, Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity are still vying for Trump’s support.
But perhaps no one on the network is more in the president’s corner than Jeanine Pirro. Earlier this week, Trump’s own Attorney General William Barr admitted that there wasn’t evidence of fraud that could overturn the 2020 election. While Pirro was once a big fan of Barr, she is now referring to him as a swamp dweller.
The bombastic Fox News host began, “Unfortunately, the Attorney General Bill Barr has proven himself to be anything other than extraordinary. This week, Barr commented that he has not seen fraud on a scale that could have affected a different outcome in the election.”
“Really? It’s curious, Barr, the head of the DOJ would affirmatively make a statement regarding a pending investigation,” she continued. “As a former prosecutor, for over three decades, I and virtually everyone similarly situated know that DOJ guidelines do not allow comment on investigations.”
Back in August of 2019, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro called AG Bill Barr a slow but steady ”locomotive,” adding “there ain’t nothing going to stop him, he is going get to where he is going, you can be sure he will get there when he is supposed to!” https://t.co/cdGb8iEd8o

Pirro closed her rant, “We need answers. We need action. We need justice. And you, Mr. Barr, are so deep in the swamp you can’t see beyond your fellow reptiles, and you are not the exceptional leader needed at this exceptional time in history.”
