‘How Could You Possibly Misjudge This?’ Fox’s Pirro Demands Ryan Resign Over Health Care Bill Failure
Fox’s Judge Jeanine Pirro held nothing back on Saturday night when she called on Paul Ryan to resign as House Speaker over the failed attempt to replace the Affordable Care Act.
In light of the decision to pull the vote on the American Health Care Act (ACHA), Pirro placed the blame on Ryan for the “complete and total failure” the Trump administration observed this week. Pirro explained that Ryan is more to blame than Trump over the decision, since the president is still relatively new to politics while Ryan is an experienced political operative who should’ve known how to navigate the bill through the House of Representatives.
“How could you possibly misjudge this,” Pirro furiously asked. “I certainly have not spoken to the president about any of this, but I can only imagine that he and his aides took on healthcare because they believed you had his back, and you didn’t! They didn’t even test the waters.”
Pirro went on to say that Ryan damaged Trump’s political capital by leading him into a political endeavor on health care, only to have nothing to show for it. Pirro also said that the ACHA failure would embolden Trump’s congressional opponents, and for that, Ryan has “got to go.”
“The American people won’t forget this,” Pirro concluded, “and neither should the president.”
It is worth noting that Trump told his Twitter followers to watch Pirro’s show tonight.
