Fox News Bumps Host's Show Over Hijab Remark For Which Trump Says "Bring Her Back"

"Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro," US President Donald Trump tweeted Sunday morning. Jeanine Pirro, the Fox News Channel host, and former prosecutor was absent from her usual slot in the network's Saturday night prime-time lineup - and her most powerful viewer was not happy about it. Fox News bumped the show a week after it publicly condemned Pirro's on-air suggestion that Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., did not support the U.S. Constitution because she is Muslim and wears a hijab. Trump accused Pirro's critics of waging "all-out campaigns" against Pirro and fellow Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who was widely rebuked after decade-old racist, misogynistic and homophobic comments resurfaced last week. Both of their comments prompted some advertisers to boycott the shows. "Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down," Trump said in another tweet, before issuing a curiously dire warning to "Be strong & prosper, be weak & die!" 

Fox News pulls Jeanine Pirro show after her Islamophobic remarks

Jeanine Pirro, the Fox News host who made Islamophobic comments about a Muslim congresswoman, has been unexpectedly yanked off-air. And now one of her most-powerful defenders; the president of the United States is railing against the network. She was missing from its usual Saturday timeslot at 9 pm on Fox News, coming just one week after Pirro questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) was loyal to the United States because she wears a hijab. She took the rare move of publicly condemning one of its own anchors. But Pirro has refused to apologize, saying that she never explicitly called Omar “un-American.” Now, President Donald Trump is injecting himself into the controversy in defense of Pirro. “Fox ... must stay strong and fight back with vigor. Stop working soooo hard on being politically correct, which will only bring you down, and continue to fight for our Country,” Trump tweeted on Sunday.
