Fox News host Jeanine Pirro opened her Saturday night show with a broad condemnation of President Barack Obama’s “full-throttle savage attack” on Donald Trump.
“It has never happened in the history of this country, an ex-president viciously attacking his successor, trashing our commander-in-chief, his party, and all those Americans who put him in the Oval Office,” Pirro said.
“Donald Trump is one of the biggest threats to our democracy?” Pirro said. “How dare you! This man is the president of the United States, someone we put in office, and he is to be respected!”
“If you’re a patriot and you like the course America is on, just ignore them, get behind this president, and vote,” she told her viewers.
Pirro said Obama “pontificated” about racism and accused him of being “divisive” by making
“Are you kidding?” Pirro said. “If anyone has stoked racial hatred and divisiveness it’s you and your self-proclaimed wingman Attorney General Eric Holder, running off to Ferguson, attacking all law enforcement, whenever there’s a death, even before there’s any investigation.”
Pirro said that Trump’s election was Obama’s fault.
“You desperately tried to defeat Trump and it didn’t work,” Pirro said. “I’m sorry to say this, but there’s one thing you’re going to have to live with: the only reason we have an outsider businessman president, is because of you, your lies, your policies and your divisiveness. You, Barack, you elected Donald Trump. And there’s nothing you can do about the fact that he’s sitting in the Oval Office now. So I guess I should say, ‘thank you Barak.'”
