Judge Jeanine on Saturday lit up Congresswoman Ilhan Omar for being anti-Semitic and suggests her “hijab” was in accordance to Sharia Law.
Fox News denounced Judge Jeanine, stating her opinions did not “reflect” the network’s.
Fox News on Sunday night denounced remarks by host Jeanine Pirro this weekend suggesting that Rep. Ilhan Omar supports Sharia law in defiance of the U.S. Constitution because she wears a hijab.
“We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar," the network said in a statement. "They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
Pirro's comments came on her weekly broadcast Saturday during a segment criticizing Omar, whose recent statements about Israel have provoked bipartisan repudiation and a House resolution condemning bigotry. Omar (D-Minn.) in 2018 became one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, along with Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-Mich.).
“She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from?” Pirro said. “Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59 tells women to cover so they won’t get molested.
“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Pirro said.
