Fox News on Monday denounced comments made by the channel’s own Jeanine Pirro after the host said Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s headscarf was “antithetical to the United States Constitution”.
Over the weekend, Ms Pirro, who hosts the show Justice with Judge Jeanine, slammed Ms Omar’s criticism of Israel. The television host attributed Ms Omar’s comments on Israel to her Muslim faith and Sharia law, while questioning her adherence to the US constitution. “She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democratic Party. Where is she getting it from?” she asked.
Ms Pirro, who is a friend of President Donald Trump, went on to say the Ms Omar’s views were also a result of her wearing a hijab.
