Fox news’ Judge Jeanine Pirro will not air tonight for a second straight week, following comments she made two weeks ago.
On her “Judge Jeanine” program two weeks ago, Pirro said about Rep. Ihan Omar’s decision to wear a hijab, “is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution?”
The comments led some advertisers to put out statements saying they would no longer advertise on her show, and led Fox News to issue the following statement: “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.”
The move last week caused President Trump to tweet a demand that Fox News returns to airing her show.
