Jeanine Pirro Bumped From Fox News Time Slot After Comment About Rep. Ilhan Omar

Fox News didn’t air Jeanine Pirro’s show on Saturday night but would not say if she had been suspended for questioning the patriotism of Muslim Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. “We are not commenting on internal scheduling matters,” the network said in a statement, according to the New York Times. Fox had previously rebuked Pirro for her remarks on Omar’s hijab. “Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Shariah law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Pirro had asked last week. Some advertisers protested the remark, and Fox said her views do not “reflect those of the network.” Instead of Justice With Judge Jeanine, viewers saw a rerun of of the documentary series Scandalous in the 9 p.m. slot on Saturday.
