Colbert Explains How They Got Jeanine Pirro to Sound Like a Bigot: ‘They Pointed a Camera at Her’

On Monday night, Late Show host Stephen Colbert explained how the left and the mainstream media have conspired to make Fox News host Jeanine Pirro sound like a bigot.

On Saturday, Jeanine Pirro was not on the air just one week after her Islamophobia remarks about Rep. Ilhan Omar.

Trump was not happy.

“Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro,” Trump tweeted out. “The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country. They have all out campaigns against @FoxNews hosts who are doing too well.”

After reading the tweet in his Trumpian voice, Colbert then offered his own take.

“Yes, the radical left and the mainstream media hatched a devious plot to make Jeanine Pirro sound like a bigot,” Colbert claimed. “Here’s how they did it: They pointed a camera at her.”
