Donald Trump television aka Fox News is owned by Rupert Murdoch, a man who did all he could do to get POTUS into the White House. The trash-talking network has hired a whole host of ultra-conservative pundits, and few of them are ever reigned in. There is this one exception, though.
Judge Jeanine Pirro wondered if House Representative Ilhan Omar’s Islamic religion actually condemned the U.S. Constitution. Never mind that the U.S. Constitution guarantees people the right to religious freedom, not just evangelical beliefs. One of Pirro’s producers called her out for “spreading false narrative:”
@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx.’

The freshman Democrat is a practicing Muslim and wears a religious hair cover called an “hijab.” Her comments about Israel have drawn controversy on both sides of the aisle.
Pirro noted on her Fox News show Justice:
‘Think about it: Omar wears a hijab. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?’
Fox News released a rare statement rebuking Pirro:
‘We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar. They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.’
