Saturday, Jeanine Pirro lit into First Lady Michelle Obama on Fox News Channel’s ‘Justice with Judge Jeanine’ for telling Oprah Winfrey that Americans are no longer feeling optimistic since Donald Trump’s election.
The entire interview with Obama airs at 8 p.m. ET Monday on CBS and again on Winfrey’s OWN network at 9 p.m. ET on December 21st.
“You lived a life few can even imagine at the citadel of power and prestige on earth,” Pirro directed at Obama. “You and your husband, blessed by God, and also the American people, with all the unique and historical chance to not only lead America from that glowing place on the hill but impact Americans and give them hope essentially no others can. Now that you’re leaving, hope is gone?”
Pirro then defined hope as the overwhelmingly powerful response to Trump’s deal with Carrier Corporation that saved almost 1,000 jobs in America.
“Hope is when people, 30 thousand at a time stand in line in the cold with their kids hoping to get a glimpse of a man they believe can change the course of their lives from the downward spiral which you and Mister Hope and Change have put them on. I’ll tell you what hope and change is. Hope and change is when people show up 20 thousand strong after an election — determined to view the guy who really brought back jobs to almost a thousand folks when your husband said it was impossible.”
