An old video is coming back to haunt Fox News. The video shows Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro blasting Hillary Clinton and saying that we can’t have a president that’s under criminal investigation.
This video comes from the Fox show Justice with Judge Jeanine. Judge Jeanine used her show as a platform to blast then-candidate Hillary Clinton during the campaign.
Hillary was under investigation by the FBI over her private server at the time. And Pirro claimed that this country can’t have a president that’s under investigation for criminal acts.
Pirro said, “We cannot have a country led by a president subject to ongoing criminal investigations, potential indictments, and never-ending hearings. We cannot have a president under that level of scrutiny that inevitably leads to more questions and more investigations.”
Pirro also made the point that it didn’t matter if Hillary was innocent or not. She claimed the investigation itself would undercut her authority and make her look bad in the eyes of the world.
Pirro continued, “Whether she’s indicted or even guilty, it doesn’t matter. Her guilt is a moot point.”
Of course, Hillary Clinton was cleared of all charges by the FBI. But to the folks at Fox News that doesn’t even matter.
And Trump’s administration is under investigation for colluding with the Russian government.
We’re now in the midst of the “ongoing criminal investigations, potential indictments, and never-ending hearings” that Pirro was so worried about.
And she’s also right, our country looks bad to the rest of the world because we have president under federal investigation. This president also continues to lie about all his crimes.
So what do the personalities at Fox News propose? Are they calling for Trump’s dismissal now that he’s under investigation?
Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro said that Hillary Clinton couldn’t take office because she was under federal investigation.
But Fox News has flip-flopped and continues to defend President Trump even though he and his administration are under federal investigation.
Is Fox News full of hypocrites? Tell the world what you think in the poll below.
The answer was pretty simple for Pirro back when Hillary was under investigation. She called for the candidate to step down.
“Now in any other business, when the head of a corporation is plagued by scandal, that person steps down and is replaced,” said Pirro. “Because the board knows the business cannot succeed without respect and authority.”
The talking heads at Fox News, however, aren’t calling for Trump to step down. Instead, they continue to defend the man in spite of all the investigations and hearings.
Apparently, though, Fox thinks that Republicans get to play by a different set of rules. Only Democratic scandals matter, not GOP scandals.
Fox News shows no shame in their blatant hypocrisy. So please share this video on Facebook to show the rest of the world that Fox News is full of hypocrites.
