President Trump is not happy that Fox News yanked one of his closest friends, Jeanine Pirro, from the air.
Pirro was surprisingly pulled off the air last night and no one knows if it is permanent or just a one-time thing.
Fox has been under fire of late and many advertisers are pulling ads from the conservative network.
Enter President Trump. From The Federalist Papers:
President Donald Trump tore into Fox News in defense its hosts Tucker Carlson and Jeanine Pirro daring the network to stand behind them.
“Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country,” he said.
“They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox must stay strong and fight back with vigor,” President Trump said.
“Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country,” he said.
“The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die!” the president said.
“Stay true to the people that got you there. Keep fighting for Tucker, and fight hard for @JudgeJeanine,” he said.
“Your competitors are jealous – they all want what you’ve got – NUMBER ONE. Don’t hand it to them on a silver platter. They can’t beat you, you can only beat yourselves!” he said.
A week after Fox News host Jeanine Pirro went after Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar for wearing a hijab her show has been pulled from the schedule.
The announcement came mere hours before her show was set to air on Saturday and it has many wondering why, Variety reported.
Fox News Channel replaced tonight’s broadcast of Jeanine Pirro’s weekly program with a repeat episode of its documentary series “Scandalous,” just days after the 21st Century Fox-owned cable-news network said it condemned remarks the outspoken host made about Minnesota Democrat Ihan Omar.
The change in Fox News’s schedule was evident in an on-screen cable guide. But a Pirro broadcast had been placed in newspaper TV listings for this evening.
When reached for comment, a Fox News spokesperson said, “We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters” and declined to elaborate.
During her broadcast last Saturday, Pirro, a former New York prosecutor, suggested Omar, a Democractic representative, did not respect the law set down by the Constitution of the United States. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?” Pirro asked.
From The Hill:
Last week, Fox News condemned remarks made by Pirro after the host on air questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) is loyal to Sharia because she wears a hijab.
“We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters,” a Fox News spokesperson told The Hill of Pirro’s show being preempted.
Several advertisers pulled their ads from Pirro’s show last week in the wake of the Omar controversy. Tucker Carlson, host of Fox’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” also lost advertisers after a left-leaning blog resurfaced comments he made during appearances on a radio show between 2006 and 2011.
Trump on Sunday also named Carlson, urging, “Keep fighting for Tucker.”
Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well. Fox …..
