Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro posted an unhinged, all-caps rant directed at Pres. Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and anyone asking for greater scrutiny of Russia’s role in the 2016 election.
The former Republican political candidate and TV commentator said that Pres. Obama’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election is unpatriotic and that to question Donald Trump’s victory is an act of aggression against the country.
“LOOK IT’S TIME TO TAKE SIDES…THE ELECTION IS OVER – YOU’RE EITHER WITH US OR AGAINST US,” she said. “THAT IS… WITH THE UNITED STATES OR AGAINST THE UNITED STATES.”
“Why are you so obsessed with Russia?” she demanded of Obama, going on to accuse him of sympathizing with radical Muslims instead of a “Christian” like Vladimir Putin.
“I despise all dictators, but between the dictator that thinks I’m an infidel and [wants to] have our heads cut off and the dictator from whom I simply want to keep my distance… the choice is a no-brainer,” she said, although it was not clear what dictator she believes wants to decapitate her.
“WE HAVE A NEW PRESIDENT ELECT…. HIS NAME IS DONALD J TRUMP. SO MOVE OVER BARACK,” Pirro wrote.
“MOVE OVER HILLARY, HARRY, JILL AND ALL YOU NAMBY PAMBY PATHETIC LOSERS STILL CRYING IN YOUR GRANDE DOUBLE SHOT SKINNY LATTES,” she fumed.
“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 ARE CAPABLE, TO SHOW THE SAME DIGNITY AND CLASS TO THE 45TH PRESIDENT-ELECT,” she said.
To Pirro, the fact that Obama has called for a comprehensive investigation of the role Russia may have played in tipping the U.S. election to Donald Trump is an act of disrespect.
“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,” she said.

Trump campaign in danger of having lawsuits thrown out over unpaid legal bills: report
According to a report from Politico, Donald Trump's cash-strapped campaign is frantically attempting to collect settlements in legal disputes because it needs the money to fund other lawsuits that are in danger of being dismissed.
Noting that the campaign of the embattled president is pressing Omarosa Manigault Newman to make a delinquent $52,000 payment for writing an unauthorized book about White House doings, the report explains the money is desperately needed.
‘Women didn’t like that’: Fox News host grills GOP chairwoman after Trump interrupts ‘145 times’ at debate
Fox News host Sandra Smith pressed Republican National Committee chairwoman Ronna Romney McDaniel on Thursday over the idea that President Donald Trump could be punished with a "mute button" after he repeatedly interrupted Democratic candidate Joe Biden at Tuesday's presidential debate.
During an interview on Fox News, Smith noted that the Commission on Presidential Debates is considering changing the rules due to the constant interruptions at the first debate between Biden and Trump.
"At any point when you were watching the debate, did you wish that perhaps President Trump didn't jump in there as much as he did?" Smith wondered.
Rod Rosenstein secretly crippled the Mueller investigation: report
According to a report from the New York Times, former Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein had a hand in limiting the scope of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into ties between Donald Trump's 2016 campaign and the Russians by secretly curtailing an FBI counterintelligence probe.
The report from Michael Schmidt of the Times begins by stating, "The Justice Department secretly took steps in 2017 to narrow the investigation into Russian election interference and any links to the Trump campaign, according to former law enforcement officials," before adding, "But law enforcement officials never fully investigated Mr. Trump’s own relationship with Russia, even though some career F.B.I. counterintelligence investigators thought his ties posed such a national security threat that they took the extraordinary step of opening an inquiry into them."
