Jeanine Pirro Defends Trump Against Summit Criticism: ‘What Was He Supposed to Do? Take Out a Gun and Shoot Putin?’

On a day when many of President Donald Trump‘s most loyal media backers are jumping ship, Jeanine Pirro is standing by her man.

Appearing on Fox & Friends Tuesday, the Judge explained why she’s not having any of the criticism of Trump’s performance in Helsinki.

“Come on, snap out of it, everybody,” Pirro said. “The guy is doing what he is supposed to be doing, and that is protecting us… What was he supposed to do? Take a gun out and shoot Putin? Putin said ‘I didn’t meddle in your election.’ So the president should say, ‘Hang on, let me execute this guy.'”

Abby Huntsman pushed back.

“Can you stand by your intelligence community that have given you the facts that has been meddling in the election?” Huntsman said.

Pirro replied, “The same intelligence community that said there were weapons of mass destruction that got us into a war?”
