Judge Pirro on Being Shouted Down on 'The View': A 'Microcosm' of the Hatred for President Trump
Sends message to Whoopi Goldberg
In her Opening Statement, Judge Jeanine Pirro said that her experience last week on ABC's "The View" exemplified the hatred toward President Trump.
"This isn't about me," Pirro said. "There is a bigger issue at play here. 'The View' was just a microcosm of what's going on in this country," she said.

The level of hatred toward President Trump is beyond anything seen in the history of the United States thus far, she added.
"Now, Donald Trump is the target of vitriol so palpable, it's simply frightening."
Pirro on Saturday said that she'd like to move on after she and "The View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg got in a heated exchange during Thursday's show.
She and Goldberg should agree to disagree, she added.
"To Whoopi, I accept that you and I have different versions of what happened on Thursday, both on and off the air, and that we have completely different takes on President Trump and the job he's doing."
Conversation among family, friends and acquaintances cannot happen in today's society, Pirro said, because political differences are tearing people apart.
"It's almost impossible to have a rational discussion that doesn't turn into a food fight," she said.
"Everyone has the right to speak. But when you cant even listen to what someone has to say because you despise the man who is president, you undermine not the president of the United States, you undermine the United States. "- My #OpeningStatement pic.twitter.com/Fkq2sQiWII

"Thinking you're right and not allowing debate is fascism," Pirro said, adding that while she was clear in her objections to former President Barack Obama's policies, she never rooted for the country to fail.
She said that those on the left who are threatening President Trump and attacking those who support him are tearing down America.
"Everyone has the right to speak. But when you cant even listen to what someone has to say because you despise the man who is president, you undermine not the president of the United States -- you undermine the United States."
