During her opening statement on Saturday, Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro hammered Republicans for refusing to come to the defense of President Donald Trump, telling them in no uncertain terms to, “act like you give a damn,” and convince Americans they’re not part of the plot to bring the president down.
From Fox News:
Pirro said there is a “subtle Republican plot” to bring down Trump and install another establishment Republican president similar to George Bush or 2008 nominee Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.).
“It’s the biggest danger to the country,” she said. “Other than Newt Gingrich, few if any Republican politicians vociferously support their president.”
Pirro said the establishment is fine with seeing Trump be “railroaded” by Democrats day in and day out.
“Think about it. If he’s knocked out, the succession is clear and things go back to the way they were,” she said.
Pirro asking where rank-and-file Republicans’ outrage is over the left colluding with the press or the New York play depicting presidential assassination.
She called for Republicans to do their jobs and investigate people like President Clinton for his tarmac meeting with former A.G. Loretta Lynch.
“You’re in power, dammit. Do something. Pass something. Cut this Kumbaya crap. Put on your big boy pants and act like you’re in power. Act like you give a damn,” Pirro said.
“More importantly, convince us that you’re not in on the effort to take down the president of the United States,” she said.
