Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News Show Doesn’t Air 1 Week After Remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Muslim Faith

The Wrap Sunday, 17 March 2019 ()
Jeanine Pirro’s weekly show on Fox News did not air on Saturday evening one week after the former federal judge suggested on air that Rep. Ilhan Omar may not fully support the United States Constitution because she is a Muslim — a statement that the network said it “strongly condemns.”

Without explanation, “Justice With Judge Jeanine” was replaced by a repeat episode of the documentary series “Scandalous,” about the 1991 rape trial of William Kennedy Smith.

“We’re not commenting on internal scheduling matters,” a rep for Fox News said, declining to comment further on whether Pirro had been suspended and how soon she might return to the air.

President Donald Trump noted her absence from the air and called on Fox News to restore her show.

“Bring back [DEL: @ :DEL]*JudgeJeanine* Pirro,” the president tweeted early Sunday. “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 [DEL: @ :DEL]*FoxNews* hosts who are doing too well.”

In a subsequent tweet, he added, “Fox must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country. The losers all want what you have, don’t give it to them. Be strong & prosper, be weak & die! Stay true….

On last Saturday’s show, Pirro sparked bipartisan outrage over her remarks about Omar, a first-term congresswoman from Minnesota who wears a hijab as part of her Muslim faith. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?” Pirro asked.

After growing outcry, Fox News issued a statement condemning Pirro’s remarks. “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly,” a network rep said.

At the time, the rep did not respond to requests to elaborate on how the matter was addressed or whether any disciplinary action would be taken.
