It’s usually inadvisable to bite the hand that feeds you. However, when that hand is Fox News, and you think it’s part of a coalition attempting to steal the nomination from Donald Trump, it’s definitely a good thing.
Biting Fox News is just what Judge Jeanine Pirro did on Saturday’s edition of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” where she used her “opening statement” as a not-so-subtle jab at both Fox and the Republican elites who have been trying in every way possible to nullify The Donald’s advantage in votes.
“The Republicans actually take the cake. They are not even hiding what they plan to do,” Pirro said.
“They are about to change the rules, ignore the votes of people who waited in line for hours and invalidate the votes of people who have never voted before, and put in a candidate they think is good for them.”
“Whatever happened to your vote matters? Not only is that infuriating, it is un-American,” said Pirro.
“If ever there were a time to not take away our vote, it’s now,” Pirro noted, directing her comments at the Republican establishment. “At a time when more people than ever are invested and voting. You want to keep your status quo — the one where one hand washes the other and we pay for the soap.”
Fox’s bias against Trump has been not-so-secret, particularly in regards to Trump’s feud with Megyn Kelly.
After the last incident, where Trump called Kelly “crazy” because of her election night coverage on March 15, Fox went as far as to put out a statement on the incident.
“Donald Trump’s vitriolic attacks against Megyn Kelly and his extreme, sick obsession with her is beneath the dignity of a presidential candidate who wants to occupy the highest office in the land,” the statement said.
“Megyn is an exemplary journalist and one of the leading anchors in America — we’re extremely proud of her phenomenal work and continue to fully support her throughout every day of Trump’s endless barrage of crude and sexist verbal assaults.”
No word yet on what Fox is going to say about Pirro’s bold declaration of war against them and their ties to the establishment. One thing is for sure, though — it won’t be pretty.
