Fox News host Jeanine Pirro terminated a visitor’s look on her present Saturday after he known as out a scarcity of info on her program and praised President Joe Biden.
Pirro refuted figures introduced by her visitor, distinguished immigration legal professional David Leopold, on the migrant surge on the U.S.-Mexico border. Leopold, who served as an advisor to Biden’s transition crew, argued that there have all the time been ebbs and flows in migration, citing a surge that the U.S. noticed through the Trump administration to push again on Pirro’s narrative that the Biden administration is “sending them in.”
“Jeanine, just because you say my numbers are wrong, doesn’t mean they’re wrong,” Leopold mentioned.
“These are the facts!” Pirro insisted.
“They’re not facts Jeanine,” Leopold replied. “Very few things that I hear on this show tonight have been facts.”
Leopold went on to inform Fox News viewers that Republicans “don’t want the American people to think about” Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan ― which no Republican in Congress voted for.
“Because the Democrats came into power. President Biden kept his promise. He’s putting COVID relief out there. He’s making America better. He’s making America great again,” he mentioned.
This prompted an eruption from Pirro, who interrupted, saying “I’m stopping you right there. I don’t tolerate lies on my show.”
“He is bringing COVID into this country after Americans weren’t allowed to go to work, go to church, or visit families, or go to funerals,” she mentioned. “And now he’s bringing in a whole pandemic during a pandemic. David Leopold, thanks for being here, and thanks for nothing.”
Despite her declare she doesn’t tolerate lies, Pirro is one in every of three Fox personalities named in a $2.7 billion defamation lawsuit accusing the corporate of repeatedly and falsely reporting that voting system firm Smartmatic rigged the 2020 election.
She typically espouses racist, anti-immigrant rhetoric, and earlier this month prompted a stir when she claimed immigrants convey “all kinds of diseases” together with COVID-19 into the U.S.
