In her Opening Statement last night, Judge Jeanine Pirro criticized Hillary Clinton for her “basket of deplorables” remark about “half” of opponent Donald Trump’s supporters.
“So Hillary is basically calling a huge portion of Americans ‘deplorable and irredeemable'. Now, I don’t consider myself deplorable—but since you started it, Hillary, let’s have at it.”
Pirro slammed Clinton for perceived hypocrisy as a “so-called feminist, who supports countries that force women to cover every part of their body but their eyeballs.”
“And you want to call us Islamophobes? On the eve of the 15th anniversary of 9/11, if I’m from Lower Manhattan, San Bernardino or Orlando and I’m afraid of a Muslim jihadist, I’m an Islamophobe?”
“You, Hillary are a liar, and a pathological one at that. You’re a cheat. You’re dishonest. You’re condescending, arrogant and contemptuous,” Pirro said.
“And if you think that your half-assed apology will wipe the slate clean you are wrong,” she said.
“I can’t trust a president who doesn’t think I’m worthy of being an American.”
Watch Judge Jeanine’s powerful Opening Statement above, and read the full transcript below:
I am a friend and supporter of Donald Trump. And Donald Trump is now neck and neck with Hillary Clinton. So Hillary is basically calling a huge portion of Americans deplorable and irredeemable. Now I don't consider myself deplorable-- but since you started it Hillary, let's have at it.
Hillary, you bow to and take money from countries who throw gays off buildings. You take money for your so-called charity from countries that don't allow women to drive; a so-called feminist who supports countries that force women to cover every part of their body but their eyeballs.
And you want to call us islamophobes?
On the eve of the 15th anniversary of 9/11, if I’m from lower Manhattan, San Bernardino or Orlando, and I’m afraid of a Muslim jihadist, I’m an islamophobe?
Sounds like a reasonable fear to me. And you-- the queen of black lives matter-- want to call me a racist? You continued to trash talk us:
Hey Hillary, you got that right. We're desperate for change and you for sure aint it. You are as establishment as it gets. And yes-- we're fed up with your kind of government. Where the attorney
General secretly meets with your husband-- while you're the target of an active criminal investigation. And you come out days later promising she'd keep her job as attorney general. You're right-we're fed up with your kind of government where the
Destruction of subpoenaed evidence with hammers, bleachbit and delete buttons are tolerated. Where you simply ignore and destroy federal documents. Where the head of
FBI, when called upon to explain before congress why you’re not being charged with a myriad of crimes is so outclassed and so outlawyered that a five year old could convict you.
You Hillary are a liar, and a pathological one at that. You’re a cheat. You’re dishonest. You are condescending, arrogant and contemptuous.
And if you think that your half assed apology will wipe the slate clean you are wrong.
It takes you 17 hours to figure out you had to apologize?
The ordinary people- the people who have to follow the law- who pay their taxes, who have to work two and three jobs, who fight for all of us-- don’t want a president who hates us.
We don’t want a president who thinks we're deplorable.
And on this-the eve of the worst terror attack on this great nation's soil, by Islamic terrorists-- I can’t trust a president who doesn't think I’m worthy of being an American.
And that's my open.
