FOX News host Jeanine Pirro has claimed that the network wants to fire her, following her suspension in March over comments she made about Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-MN) questionable loyalty to the U.S. Constitution.

In comments made during a commercial break on the radio show of former White House aide Sebastian Gorka, Pirro claimed that her suspension was “the basis to tee up for anything I do wrong, they will fire me.”
Pirro also said that she had been barred from talking to other media outlets by her bosses at Fox News. “Fox reviews everything. They’re unbelievable,” she said. “They’re still saying you cannot do Bill O’Reilly, you cannot do Newsmax.”
Gorka’s show “America First” is broadcast on radio on New York City’s The Answer 970-AM, on his website and on YouTube. Pirro’s conversation with Gorka during the commercial break was audible on the YouTube broadcast of the show. “Keep doing what you’re doing,” Gorka replied to Pirro’s comments.
Fox Newscondemned its own Jeanine Pirro over comments the host made Saturday that seemed to question the national loyalty of Rep. Ilhan Omar and other Muslim women who wear hijabs.
As a FOX News commentator, Judge Jeanine has never been shy about criticizing Islam. Until now, it has never been a problem, but until now, Rupert Murdock’s liberal son was not in charge of FOX News.
