The Hill: Fox News host Jeanine Pirro was reportedly suspended by the network following comments she made earlier this month about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) loyalty to the Constitution. CNN reported the suspension on Sunday, citing an unidentified source familiar with the matter.
Pirro’s show, “Justice with Jeanine,” did not air Saturday evening during its regularly scheduled block and was replaced with an episode of “Scandalous.” Jeanine suggested during her March 9 show that Omar’s religious beliefs were at odds with the U.S. Constitution.
“Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested.” Jeanine said. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”
Fox News condemned Jeanine’s comments, saying it had addressed the matter directly with the host. “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said in a statement last week. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.” President Trump in a tweet Sunday called on Fox News to “bring back” Pirro, who is a supporter of the president.
“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 wrote in the tweet.
A Fox News spokesperson said in a statement to The Hill that the network is “not commenting on internal scheduling matters.”
