Fox’s Jeanine Pirro: Ilhan Omar’s Hijab Means She Doesn’t Believe in the Constitution

During her show-opening monologue Saturday night, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro accused Democratic Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of adhering to Sharia law and thus not believing in the Constitution of the United States.

With the news cycle moving away from the outrage over the Muslim Minnesota lawmaker’s critical comments of pro-Israel lobbyists that many have claimed are blatantly antisemitic, Pirro devoted the top of her Saturday evening Fox program to blasting the Democratic Party for not punishing Omar for mer remarks.

“My question: Why the disdain for the government of the country that saved you and your family after you lived in a tent in Kenya for four years?” Pirro exclaimed, referencing Omar-s status as a refugee. “Why the scorn? And as the Democrats scramble to forgive, rationalize and give a pass to a freshman in Congress, the joke is on you, Nancy [Pelosi].”

She continued: “You appeased rising anti-Semitism inside the Democrat party. Let me say that again. You and the whole gang running for president in the Democratic primary in 2020 have appeased the rise of anti-Semitism in the Democrat Party.”

She then moved on to claiming that Omar wearing a hijab suggests that she doesn’t follow American laws.

“Your party is not anti-Israel, she is,” the Trump loyalist yelled. “Think about this. She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from?”

She added: “Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?”
