Rudy Giuliani: Fox News Should ‘Bring Jeanine Pirro Back’

President Donald Trump‘s lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s very first tweet after Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed over his completed Russian probe report to Attorney General William Barr was, oddly, a plea to return a Fox News host to the air.

On Friday night, Giuliani tweeted out this, calling for Jeanine Pirro to get her time slot back: “Bring Jeanine Pirro back. She has a distinguished career. She is a very successful author and a real lawyer and former judge and DA. Her views are well reasoned and command respect whether you agree with her or not.”

Pirro has not been on the air since she made an Islamophobic comment about Rep. Ilhan Omar and her hijab two Saturdays ago that prompted Fox News to issue a statement condemning their own host’s words.

The ardently pro-Trump host has also been absent from Twitter since March 10.

Trump has also called on Pirro to return to the air.

Fox News has stayed mum on Pirro’s status, telling Mediaite after it was clear she would not be on the air last Saturday that it doesn’t comment on “internal scheduling matters.”
