Judge Jeanine: 'This Wasn't an Election, It Was a Revolution'
Judge Jeanine Pirro gave an emotional Opening Statement last night on Donald Trump's stunning victory in the 2016 election.
"They told you you didn't matter, that if you supported him you were probably uneducated, small-minded and irrelevant, you were beneath them," Judge Jeanine said.
"Even though we felt forgotten, alone and beaten down, we all came home, because this wasn't an election, it was a revolution."

At 10:32 a.m. today I received a phone call from President-elect Donald j. Trump who has known me since my time as a county court judge and elected district attorney. He stated that he looks forward to beginning the process of making America great again and thanks justice and all its viewers for their support.
I am honored to have had the privilege to speak with both the president-elect and his beautiful wife, future first lady Melania, as America embarks on this special journey.
And it's been one amazing, wild, unpredictable ride.
You've been with me the whole time - thank you for that.
Now I told you from the beginning to strap in, that it would be a revolution - indeed it was.
Within the first moment of President-elect Donald trump's victory speech he showed how elegant he was by congratulating Hillary Clinton.
And not surprisingly he reached out to mitt Romney, and spoke with Jeb bush and John Kasich... Republicans who worked hard against him... As well as offering to be a president to all-- even those who violently opposed him.
And as for the campaign itself... They told you you didn't matter, that if you supported him you were probably uneducated, small-minded and irrelevant, you were beneath them. That if you wanted closed borders - a nation state - you weren't Christian enough, not American enough, not big hearted enough. That if you didn't see racism in every cop who walked the beat you probably were a racist yourself. That if you used the term Muslim jihadist instead of terrorist you were an anti-religious bigot. Truth and honesty had no place in their politically correct society. If you opposed sanctuary cities where the protection of illegal criminal immigrants was the law you were a hateful bigoted xenophobe. They simply knew better than you.
They tried to convince you that ObamaCare was great when all the while your deductible and premiums were sky rocketing.
That the economy wasn't that bad yet you had to work two and three jobs to get along. Jobs that shipped overseas didn’t matter to them because they were part of the global economy.
She even called you deplorable, irredeemable and not America. If you didn’t support her, you probably hated women and were backward. They tried to convince you a lie wasn’t a lie if it came from her mouth.
The media-- so corrupt that they shared debate questions with her to give her the edge-- tried to beat you down by repeatedly telling you it was useless to even show up at the polls.
And even though the president of the United States did his best on the eve of the election to trash him and mock him as a joke and unfit, bringing out out Jay-Z, Springsteen, Beyoncé, Gaga... It didn't matter.
In spite of it all we all, even though we felt forgotten, alone and beaten down, we all came home because this wasn't an election-- it was a revolution. We came home to where our forefathers in their genius had always planned back to America...
Back to who we are... Back to the constitution...
And yes Mr. soon to be ex-president Obama we can now proudly cling to our guns, our religion...
And now our new President-elect Donald j trump.
