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.

White House adds 20 percent increase to ‘best case’ projection of coronavirus deaths
The White House is moving the goal posts once again. Instead of taking drastic action, like asking every state's governor to mandate a quarantine to reduce the spread of coronavirus, it is quietly upping its projected death toll, just one day after stunning Americans with a six-digit death rate.
On Sunday President Donald Trump told Americans he thinks if 100,000 Americans die from coronavirus he will have done "a very good job."
On Monday Dr. Deborah Birx announced the White House is projecting 100,000 to 200,000 deaths.
Tuesday evening, the number increased 20 percent.
Olympic athletes in ‘impossible position’ – Canada
Canadian Olympic chiefs said Monday the health and safety of athletes had prompted the country's decision to withdraw its team from the Tokyo Olympics amid the coronavirus pandemic.
A day after Canada became the first team to announce its withdrawal from the July 24-August 9 Games, Canadian Olympic Committee (COC) chief David Shoemaker said athletes had been left in an "impossible position."
With public health authorities urging individuals to stay inside to curb the spread of COVID-19, athletes had been caught between a desire to heed health and safety advice while trying to minimize disruption to training programs.
Vietnamese women strive to clear war-era mines
Inching across a field littered with Vietnam war-era bombs, Ngoc leads an all-women demining team clearing unexploded ordnance that has killed tens of thousands of people -- including her uncle.
"He died in an explosion. I was haunted by memories of him," Le Thi Bich Ngoc tells AFP as she oversees the controlled detonation of a cluster bomb found in a sealed-off site in central Quang Tri province.
More than 6.1 million hectares of land in Vietnam remain blanketed by unexploded munitions -- mainly dropped by US bombers -- decades after the war ended in 1975.
At least 40,000 Vietnamese have since died in related accidents. Victims are often farmers who accidentally trigger explosions, people salvaging scrap metal, or children who mistake bomblets for toys.
