Toobin: 50 People Died in New Zealand and Trump’s Worked Up About ‘The Tragedy That Befell Jeanine Pirro’


CNN’s Jeffrey Toobin mocked President Donald Trump for his weekend tweetstorm that included several tweets defending Fox News’ Judge Jeanine Pirro over her reported suspension.

After Pirro’s show didn’t air this past Saturday––following the comments she made about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar that Fox News condemned––the president tweeted at Fox News to stand by her:

As Wolf Blitzer talked with his panel about the presidential tweetstorm, Gloria Borger said Trump engaged in a lot of trolling while watching TV, saying POTUS is “so full of grievance” even towards the late John McCain.

“Somebody needs to tell him to stop,” she said. “Maybe Melania should tell him to be best.”

Toobin then sarcastically added this:

“50 people died in New Zealand in this horrible terrorist attack, but how does that compare to the tragedy that befell Jeanine Pirro, who had her show put off for one week?… There were four tweets just about Jeanine Pirro!”
