Just days after Whoopi Goldberg unleashed hate, Judge Jeanine Pirro gave a powerful opening statement on her show. Pirro said that her experience last week on ABC’s “The View” was an open example of the hatred toward President Trump.
“This isn’t about me. There is a bigger issue at play here. ‘The View’ was just a microcosm of what’s going on in this country,” she said.
“The level of hatred toward President Trump is beyond anything seen in the history of the United States thus far. Now, Donald Trump is the target of vitriol so palpable, it’s simply frightening.”
If you did not know what happened last week, Pirro was verbally assaulted by Whoopi Goldberg while backstage on “The View”. Pirro said that Whoopi told her to “get the f*ck out of here” just moments after they walked off stage.
In her Opening Statement Pirro said:
“To Whoopi, I accept that you and I have different versions of what happened on Thursday, both on and off the air, and that we have completely different takes on President Trump and the job he’s doing.” She said. “Conversation among family, friends and acquaintances cannot happen in today’s society, because political differences are tearing people apart.”
“It’s almost impossible to have a rational discussion that doesn’t turn into a food fight,”
“Everyone has the right to speak. But when you cant even listen to what someone has to say because you despise the man who is president, you undermine not the president of the United States, you undermine the United States.”
