Jeanine Pirro Suggests Rep. Ilhan Omar’s Hijab Means She Opposes the U.S. Constitution


Fox News host Jeanine Pirro speculated that Rep. Ilhan Omar is “sharia compliant” and not loyal to the United States Constitution because of her hijab.

In an opening monologue jam-packed with loud invective, Pirro railed against Omar’s comments criticizing Israel and Democratic party leadership for not condemning the freshman congresswoman forcefully enough.

The Fox News host at one point defended the Democratic party, breaking with President Donald Trump to say anti-Semitism is “contrary to the tenets” of the party. “This is not who your party is,” she said. “Your party is not anti-Israel, [Omar] is.”

“Think about this. She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party,” Pirro continued. “So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested.”

“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” Pirro asked.

“I think that this is sharia adherence behavior,” Pirro said later in the show, in an interview with Deep State™ pundits Josh Solomon and Sarah Carter. “It is somewhat disturbing if she is someone that is sharia compliant. Do we know anything about that?”

Pirro’s guests did not.
