Fox host Judge Jeanine Pirro attacks Obama and defends Putin because the Russian dictator is a Christian willing to kill Muslims.
In a blistering rant Pirro responded to President Obama’s order that US intelligence agencies investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election with name calling and a misguided defense of Vladimir Putin, a dangerous Russian dictator.
Dismissing any notion of the loyal opposition and rejecting any questions concerning Trump’s legitimacy, Pirro began her rant by arguing “it’s time to take sides” and “you’re either with us or against us”:
Look, it’s time to take sides. The election is over. You’re either with us or against us. That is, with the United States or against The United States. We have a new president-elect. His name is Donald J. Trump.
Pirro then offered some childish insults:
So move over Barack, move over Hillary, Harry, Jill and all you namby-pamby, pathetic losers still crying in your grande, double-shot skinny lattes.
Insulting the left and making the false claim that the county was united after Obama was elected in 2008 and 2012 Pirro said:
There was a time in this country when we united behind the flag in celebration of America’s new president. Our new leader: We all did so in 2008 when Barack Obama was elected. We had high hopes for a united country, irrespective of our politics. And it’s time for the left, assuming they’re capable, to show the same dignity and class to the 45th president-elect.
Pirro went on:
This isn’t about the election is it, Mr. President? This is about domestic politics. It’s not about November, 2016. It’s about January, 2017 and your attempt to prevent Donald Trump from the smooth transition of power and your inability to face the overwhelming electoral college win that the American people gave him.
At one point Pirro asked:
Why are you so obsessed with Russia?
You, who cut a deal and were made a fool of by the world’s largest sponsor of terrorism, Iran. You know, the one that funds Hezbollah and Hamas and whose people yell ‘Death to America.’
But you’re obsessed with the Russian who at least is a Christian, who himself is obsessed with killing ISIS.
Bottom line: Pirro’s rant is a facile and juvenile attempt to dismiss the very real probability that the Russians played a nefarious and decisive role in the 2016 presidential election. The fact that she is willing to overlook Putin’s role in subverting the U.S. election because he is a Christian willing to kill Muslims is a sad commentary on the demented pundits lack of moral compass and patriotism.
