“‘Donald Trump must be stopped’ is the Republican Party’s mantra,” Judge Jeanine Pirro said in her opening statement on Justice.
“Why?” she asked. “Why would Republicans try to sabotage their own front-runner and risk a Democrat winning the White House?”
“I keep coming up with the same answer,” said Judge Jeanine.
“The Republican establishment, elected officials and party leaders are in bed with the Democrats!”
The judge explained:
“If Hillary wins, nothing is lost for them, it’s business as usual.
The lobbyists keep their offices on K Street, the pharmaceutical companies keep paying them, the unions keep adding to their pensions and the lawmakers get their reelection bribes – I mean contributions – while we the underclass work two and three jobs and rack up a debt our children and grandchildren will have to pay for generations!”
Instead of supporting Trump – “the guy who keeps winning” – party leaders have talked about creating a so-called “‘unity ticket’ of other candidates to make sure he doesn’t win,” said Judge Jeanine.
“To scare you into submission, they predict Trump cannot win the general election.”
It’s because “party elders are petrified of Trump,” Judge Jeanine explained.
“The man is beholden to no one. He wins, and it’s game over for the elite.”
Watch Judge Jeanine's opening statement above, and read the full transcript below.
So, you don't like Donald Trump. You're going to create a "unity ticket" of other candidates to make sure he doesn't win.
Say again? You want to stop one of the biggest vote-getters in your own party's Republican Party primary history?
Yet ‘Donald Trump must be stopped’ is the Republican Party’s mantra! Hey, I didn't always like my party’s choice for president, but I generally supported him.
Good that Trump is a white male otherwise they'd be accused of being racist, and lucky Trump's not gay otherwise the Republican Party would be accused of being homophobic.
So let me see if I understand this. The guy who keeps winning, despite his being called a misogynist, a racist, and a xenophobe, who has more than 50 percent of the delegates, with even as many as 17 other Republicans in those primaries and the Republican Party's mission is to block Trump's nomination?
What are you guys smoking?
Okay, you like Ted Cruz. Good for you. But he needs to win 80% of the remaining Republican delegates. Keep dreaming guys – it ain't gonna happen.
John Kasich. Nice guy. Absolutely no path to the nomination.
So I say to myself, ‘Self, why?’ Why would Republicans try to sabotage their own front-runner and risk a Democrat winning the White House? And I keep coming up with the same answer: the Republican establishment, elected officials and party leaders are in bed with the Democrats!
So if Hillary wins, nothing is lost for them, it’s business as usual.
The lobbyists keep their offices on K Street, the pharmaceutical companies keep paying them, the unions keep adding to their pensions and the lawmakers get their reelection bribes – I mean contributions – while we the underclass work two and three jobs and rack up a debt our children and grandchildren will have to pay for generations!
To scare you into submission, they predict Trump cannot win the general election. If not, pray tell why does he keep winning primaries and drawing crowds like we've never seen in American primary history?
An election note primer: Trump already has 678 delegates. He needs 1237 to win. He's won 6 closed and 13 open primaries and caucuses – one where Independents and Democrats – or just Independents vote. Why is this important?
It tells you Trump, besides winning the base, appeals to Independents and Democrats as well. Does that not bode well for the general election, especially against an establishment politician most consider untrustworthy and dishonest.
They say he's divisive. Yet the looting and burning and riots in Ferguson happened long before Trump! Black Lives Matter, Occupy Wall Street, moveon.org – all before trump. The 'what do we want – dead cops, when do we want them – now' chant, all before Trump.
It's astonishing, Republicans plotting against their own front-runner!
If the establishment had exercised this energy to get evangelical votes to Romney in 2012 he might have won! But then again, it wasn't that important because either way, either party the establishment wins – their jobs, their offices, their lifestyles intact – as they continue on their treadmill of DC money and power.
The party elders are petrified of Trump. The man is beholden to no one. He wins and it's game over for the elite. With Hillary, the game goes on.
Heads up, Washington. We're not listening to you anymore because we're fed up. You haven't fixed a damn thing. We can't take it anymore: the lies, the corruption, the debt, the taxes, the invasion, the freebies, the lack of accountability, sanctuary cities, religions forced to violate their own faith, by providing birth control and abortifacts at the altar of Obamacare and your saying one thing and doing another.
The patronage games and the free ride on our backs are over. You're not listening. For us, it's not just an election – it's the selection of Supreme Court justices and the direction our country takes for generations.
We don’t want anything more than what our Founding Fathers intended. The slippery slope into socialism doesn't work for us. We want an America where law enforcement, the military and our allies are not the enemy.
Boys, your arrogance is astonishing. And your condescension and scorn for the will of the American people is both mind-boggling and reminiscent of another time in our history.
From the beginning, we knew this would be a political revolution. Be careful boys, be very, very careful. You don't want to make this a different kind of revolution.
And that's my open.
