In March 2019, Pirro questioned Rep. Ilhan Omar’s allegiance to the Constitution or Sharia Law during her opening monologue.
President Trump was right when he said the democrat party is now the anti-Israel party. Don’t forget Nancy, history has proven over and over when you appease to anti-Semitic sentiment, the worst happens. #OpeningStatement pic.twitter.com/vrnzhcu95o

Democrats and their allies in the media twisted what Pirro said, claiming she was anti-Muslim. They pushed for her removal from Fox News. Fox News repsonded by suspending the popular host.
During her suspension, President Trump tweeted a message of support for his outspoken friend:
@JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well.
Yesterday, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro was caught on a hot mic disparaging her network for the way it controls her schedule.
The Washington Examiner reports – Pirro, 68, had called in for an interview with former White House aide Sebastian Gorka on the Salem Radio Network. She appeared not to realize, despite Gorka mentioning it, that their mics were live on YouTube between live radio segments.
After Gorka said he would love to have Pirro in the studio, she said, “Oh good. I love it. I would love it. We’ll see if they let me. You know Fox reviews everything. They’re unbelievable.”
Gorka suggested that she could have more flexibility in her schedule with a new book out, to which Pirro said, “No. They’re still saying you cannot do Bill O’Reilly, you cannot do Newsmax, you cannot do — oh no.”
She added, “You know what, they suspended me. And I’m not going to get fired. You know I’m worried that that suspension was the basis to tee up for anything I do wrong, they’ll fire me.”
