This Monday, Rep. Ilhan Omar thanked Fox News Network for supporting her and condemning Judge Jeanine for talking about her hijab.
Jeanine Pirro made a few comments on her Sunday show about Rep. Ilhan Omar that have prompted rebukes from both the right and left, as well as her own media network.
“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?” said Pirro.
The next day, Fox News said Judge Jeanine’s remarks does not reflect the network’s.
“We strongly condemn Judge Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” the network said in a statement to Mediaite on Sunday. “They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly.”
Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) thanked the network for condeming Jeanine Pirro’s remakrs on her Twitter profile.
“Thank you, @FoxNews,” Omar tweeted to her more than 720,000 followers. “No one’s commitment to our constitution should be questioned because of their faith or country of birth.” posted Omar.
