A new Justice with Jeanine Pirro is not aired today. Instead, the Fox News channel will broadcast a reissue of the documentary series Scandalous at the 9 o'clock window.
Pirro's absence from the air is remarkable not only because the Fox News host seldom misses his Saturday show but because of her absence only a week after her controversial comments on Rep. Ilhan Omar .
comes. During her last Saturday, Pirro opened the door to the newly-elected congressman: "Think about it. She does not get this anti-Israeli sentiment from the Democratic Party … So, if she's not rooted in the party, where does she get her? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which, according to Qur'an 33:59, requires women to hide so they will not be molested.
In response, Fox News condemned Pirro's remarks.
"We strongly condemn Judge Jeanine Pirro's remarks on Rep. Ilhan Omar," Mediaite said. "They do not reflect those of the network, and we addressed the matter directly with her."
Pirro also reacted to the controversy by making a statement that Omar invited to her show, insisting she did not call Omar "un-American." "
" I saw a lot of comments on my opening statement from the show on Saturday night and I did not call Rep Omar "un-American," Pirro said. "I had the intention to ask a question and start a debate, but, of course, a Muslim does not mean that you do not support the Constitution, and I invite Member Omar to my show at any time to discuss all the important issues facing America today. "
Fox News responded a request for comment with the comment: "We do not comment on internal planning issues." [1
