Fox News Pulls The Show, Trump Defends Her

On the March 10 episode of Justice With Judge Jeanine, she questioned whether Ilhan Omar, the U.S. Representative for Minnesota’s 5th congressional district, was loyal to the United States as she wears a hijab.

Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which, according to the Qur’an 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?

Fox News pulled off the show replacing it with a recast of a Scandalous episode in its time slot. Well, the American President Donald Trump is not happy by the decision.

Trump made his tweet supporting Jeanine and also its host Tucker Carlson, who is under pressure over offensive comments made on talk radio beginning in the mid-2000s. The Fox News is yet to comment any further on the incident.
