Fox News Pulls Jeanine Pirro Show after her Islamophobic Remarks

Trump Cites Fox Friends for New Attacks on Hillary ObamaJeanine Pirro, the Fox News host who made Islamophobic comments about a Muslim Congress member, has been unexpectedly yanked off the air. And now one of her most powerful defenders โ€” the president of the United States โ€” is railing against the network.

Justice With Judge Jeanine was missing from its usual Saturday time slot at 9 pm on Fox News, coming just one week after Pirro questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was loyal to the United States because she wears a hijab.

In response, Fox News took the rare move of publicly condemning one of its own anchors. But Pirro has refused to apologize, saying that she never explicitly called Omar โ€œun-American.โ€

And now President Donald Trump is injecting himself into the controversy in defense of Pirro. โ€œFox … 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,โ€ he tweeted on Sunday.
