Fox News Host Judge Jeanine Pirro Slams Charlotte ‘Rioters’ and ‘Paid Protesters’

2thumbJudge Jeanine Pirro held nothing back on Friday as she tore into the “anarchists” and troublemakers she deems responsible for the unrest in North Carolina after the police shooting of Keith Lamont Scott.

Several demonstrators in Charlotte have been confrontational toward Fox News and other media outlets over the past few nights, and the Justice host let loose on them during a Friday morning appearance on Fox & Friends. Pirro got particularly fired up after Steve Doocy said that 70 percent of those arrested were out-of-towners, which Pirro didn’t find at all surprising.

“I think all Americans needed to take stock of the rioters,” Pirro said. “These were not protesters, they were rioters. They were people who were tearing the fabric of our community apart. They were anarchists!”

Eventually, Pirro said the #BlackLivesMatter movement and the other protesters to have no other motivation than being paid to agitate, in order to manufacture a platform for the Democratic Party.

“They need this narrative. This is all about the election,” said Pirro.

Pirro, for her part, has made her affinity for Donald Trump quite clear in the past.
