Fox News ‘Judge’ Jeanine Pirro ‘Cancels’ Guest for Saying Biden is ‘Making America Great Again’

Fox News is at it again. The network that virtually created the scandalous concept of “Cancel Culture” is, ironically, the most prolific purveyor of it. Over the past couple of decades they have feverishly “canceled” hundreds of people, products, and ideas that conflict with their ultra-conservative political and social doctrine.

Fox News, Joe Biden, Jeanine Pirro

This hypocrisy was glaringly evident again on Saturday’s episode of the hilariously misnamed “Justice with Jeanine Pirro.” The program began with an extended rant about immigration problems that she insisted were all the fault of Joe Biden who has been President for all of two months, and whom Fox News regards as both boring and diabolical.

Pirro then brought on immigration attorney David Leopold who, when he wasn’t being interrupted by Pirro, had the temerity to tell her to her face that “Very few things that I hear on this show tonight have been facts.”

Leopold was referring to Pirro’s wildly inaccurate data on immigration. He correctly stated that 150,000 migrants came across the southern border in 2019, during Donald Trump’s term. Pirro wrongly contradicted him saying that this February’s numbers of 100,000 migrants were the highest in fifteen years. But the official statistics from the U.S. Customs and Border Protection agency proves that Pirro was wrong and Leopold was right. That disparity led to this hostile reaction by Pirro to being corrected:

Leopold: President Biden kept his promise. He’s putting COVID relief out there. He’s making America better. He’s making America great again…
Pirro: I’m stopping you right there. I don’t tolerate lies on my show. He is bringing COVID into this country

First of all, anyone who has watched more than ten minutes of her program knows that Pirro not only tolerates lies, she is the most frequent source of them. Pirro would have been more correct if she had said that she didn’t tolerate lies by anyone other than herself and her rightist confederates.

More to the point, Pirro was parroting false assertions from right-wing propagandists including Texas governor Greg Abbott who falsely claimed that “The Biden administration was releasing illegal immigrants into our communities who had COVID.” The truth is that immigrants were actually testing positive for COVID at half the rate of native Texans as a result of Abbott’s flaunting CDC guidelines.

On the same episode, Pirro hosted right-wing rage-aholics Tomi Lahren and Leo Terrell to attack Biden’s mental acuity (video below). Lahren started off with her conspiracy theory that “The left is going to dump Joe Biden in five months, maybe six months. Put Kamala in, as we all knew. We were never supposed to talk about this.” Which is odd because they talk about it all the time.

Lahren then goes on to explicitly malign Biden as “mentally unstable.” Never mind that the American people had an opportunity last November to assess that and they voted for Biden in overwhelming numbers (8 million more votes than Trump). Polls (including a Fox News poll) even showed that voters considered Donald Trump as being the mentally unsound candidate.

Lahren continued with a flagrant lie about an alleged attempt by Democrats to take the nuclear codes away from Biden. What she dishonestly distorted was a letter sent to Biden by House Democrats suggesting that the power to launch a nuclear attack should not rest in one person (the president).

However, the letter wasn’t a critique of Biden’s mental acuity and never mentioned that. Quite the opposite. It specifically referred to Trump who recklessly taunted foreign leaders with threats of his nuclear prowess. “Past presidents,” the letter said, “have threatened to attack other countries with nuclear weapons or exhibited behavior that caused other officials to express concerns about the president’s judgment.” So it was Trump who prompted the suggestion that the president shouldn’t be the sole possessor of that authority. The letter even cited a Trump tweet from January of 2018, that bragged maniacally that his “Nuclear Button” was “much bigger & more powerful than” North Korea’s Kim Jong Un:

Pirro then turned to Terrell who ranted hysterically that Biden was “an embarrassment” because Vladimir Putin challenged him to a debate. Huh? That actually suggests that Biden appropriately rankled Putin who never needed to debate Trump because they were on the same side. Trump was Putin’s lapdog, so what would be the point of a debate?

This is the sort of fringe crackpottery that is routinely dispensed on Pirro’s program, as well as most of the rest of Fox’s schedule. It is wholly dedicated to advancing a radical conservatism that is utterly out of line with the American people. Unfortunately, it continues to disinform enough dimwitted viewers, some of whom resort to violence in pursuit of their Fox-inspired, fantastical delusions. It’s up to the rest of us to keep setting the record straight and supporting reality-based news sources. Yeah, it’s a dirty job, but someone’s gotta do it.

  1. “Pirro: I’m stopping you right there. I don’t tolerate lies on my show. He is bringing COVID into this country.”

    She’s only 1:3 on the “T: L” (Truth to Lies scale). Par for the course at FauxNotNews, but totally unacceptable at any REAL news outlet.
    She did “stop him right there”, So 1st sentence is true. That’s it. Her 1 out of 3.
    Pirro.
    Putrid.
    Pathetic.
    Propaganda.
    (Huh. Maybe it’s a “P” thing?)
    I’ve got 1 more for her:
    “Piece of Shit”!
    As in, “POS Pirro” Show. (Very apropos, no?!?)

    In what language, might ‘pirro’ mean”liar”? Or, “she lies”?
    I think ‘perro’ means ‘dog’ in Spanish. Maybe ‘pirro’ means ‘dogshit’ in Spanish??
    If not, it should.
    Liars don’t tolerate truths.
    I really don’t tolerate lies. Hate ’em. Hate ’em. Hate ’em! I don’t tell ’em, or tolerate ’em.
    There are times it might be smarter for me to lie, but it’s just not an option.
    I’ve pissed-off alot of people in my life by calling them on their lies. Now I try to tone it down & just say, “Reall-lly.” Think my tone of voice gives it away tho.
    As you can imagine, I can’t sit thru even 5mins of FauxSpews & only read anything Trump says. Come to think of it, watch most news with finger ready, near mute button. Had same problem with Bush, but kept basket of McD’s mini-beanies next to me after I thru my lighter at TV & cracked it! Husband would come home from work & find all the beanies at base of TV. (He’d just shake his head – glad I didn’t throw anything bigger.) LOL
    So far, I really like that new gal, Jen Psaki! Can actually listen, not have to read the cc.
    Not sure how I got so bad ~ many lies on TV, but think it’s like “toxic overload” & certain liars make me nuts ~ can’t stand to hear ’em! Seems like ALL the Rethugs do it these days…
    (Sorry MarkNC ~ don’t watch those video snippets you put in posts.)
