'Jeanine Pirro is a disgrace'

Fox News rebukes host Jeanine Pirro for Ilhan Omar hijab comments

Fox News issued a stern statement in response to highly controversial remarks network host Jeanine Pirro made over the weekend in which she mocked Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) for wearing a hijab, the traditional Islamic head-covering, while seemingly questioning Omar's allegiance to the United States.

Omar has been under fire for s series of anti-Semitic remarks that have upset Jewish Democrats in Congress that led to the House passing an anti-hate resolution which was originally meant to be a rebuke of her remarks but was watered-down after an outcry from far-left Democrats. She previously hosted the show "Judge Jeanine Pirro" on the CW, which was canceled six years ago. In a tweet, Omar thanked Fox News for its statement.

Pirro suggested on her Saturday show that Omar's beliefs about Israel stem from her religion.

But a separate proposition voted on in 2016 won support for its demand to speed up executions in California. Since 1973, five California inmates who were sentenced to death were later exonerated, his office said.


Fox News also released a statement from Pirro, where she didn't apologize for her comments.

Pirro was called out on Twitter by a fellow Fox News Channel employee who is Muslim.

Shams spoke to CNN's Alisyn Camerota on Tuesday about the Fox host's suggestion that Omar's headdress is evidence of her disloyalty to the Constitution.

The Giants are indeed involved in trade discussions regarding Beckham, reports Jeff Howe of The Athletic. He caught 390 passes for 5,476 yards and 44 touchdowns through 59 games during his Giants tenure.


Pirro's remarks on her Saturday show were widely condemned, including by Fox News employees. "They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly", the network said. "Thank you, @FoxNews. No one's commitment to our constitution should be questioned due to their faith or country of birth", she said via Twitter. She said that's antithetical to the United States constitution. "You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself", she tweeted.

According to her website, Omar advocates "a lasting peace between Palestinians and Israelis" while calling for "uplift [ing] the voices of Palestinians demanding an end to the occupation of the West Bank, East Jerusalem, and end the siege of Gaza".

"The attacks on Congresswoman Ilhan Omar are part of a coordinated, decades-long effort to paint American Muslims as inherently foreign, violent and deeply hostile to women, the LGBTQ community and Jews", said Farhana Khera, executive director of Muslim Advocates.

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) on Sunday called for Pirro to be fired.
