Fox News host praises guns for reducing crime – then attacks Obama for gun deaths 10 seconds later
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Sunday attacked President Barack Obama for noting a decline in crime over the past 25 years.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that the United States is in a moment of “crisis” and that crime is rapidly getting worse. In response to his assertions, Obama said Trump’s vision of American “doesn’t really jive with most people.”
In a monologue, Pirro expressed outrage that Obama was “strangely injecting himself into a presidential race.”
“The president actually said Donald Trump’s vision of America was wrong, and says there is much less violence than 20 or 30 years ago,” she said. “Now I don’t want to rain on your parade Mr. President, but the number of firearms in the United States has doubled in the last 20 years, maybe that’s what is actually making us less violent.”
But within 10 seconds, Pirro attacked Obama over gun violence.
“We are seeing an enormous homicide increases in large cities like Milwaukee, Denver, Baltimore, Saint Louis, Cleveland, Las Vegas, and even his own hometown of Chicago, where kids are so used to the report of a gun that they don’t even run when they hear gunfire,” she said.
