Jeanine Pirro’s Appearance on Hannity Nixed Due to ‘Serious Family Emergency’

Jeanine Pirro was set to return to Fox News on Friday during Sean Hannity‘s show. However, the appearance was canceled due to a family emergency.

The appearance would have marked the first time that Pirro appeared on the air since her controversial ‘hijab’ remarks about Rep. Ilhan Omar prompted Fox News to condemn her remarks and bump her show two weeks in a row.

Pirro’s absence from the Saturday night line-up even prompted President Donald Trump to plead for her return to her weekend spot.

Yet, according to Hannity, while Pirro was set to join him during his show, a “serious family emergency” prevented her appearance.

“Before I go, I had promoted yesterday and on my radio show today that Judge Jeanine Pirro would be joining us tonight on the program,” Hannity said at the end of his 9 pm slot.

He added: “She had a really serious family emergency come up, couldn’t be with us. I don’t know the nature of it. We always pray for her.”

Further details about the emergency have not been revealed.
