Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro went viral earlier this month with a fiery monologue, where she called out Rep. Ilhan Omar for making several anti-Semitic comments in recent months.In response, Fox News refused to air Pirro’s show on Saturday night, and it appears that the Judge’s show will not air this upcoming Saturday, either.
So, many are asking the same question: why is Fox News silencing Pirro after her viral monologue?

In a segment on her show last weekend, Pirro questioned whether Omar, a Muslim lawmaker, wearing a hijab meant she was loyal to Sharia Law and not the U.S. Constitution.
“Your party is not anti-Israel—she is,” Pirro said of Democrats and Omar.
Think about it: Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran, 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,” Pirro said.
“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” she asked.
Here’s Judge Jeanine Pirro on fire.
She absolutely destroys Nancy Pelosi, Ilhan Omar, and the Democrat Party.
This is the one Fox has silenced Pirro for. But now more people will see this than ever before.

In a statement released by the network, Pirro apologized and urged Omar to come on her show so they could have a conversation.

Pirro also denied that she was calling Omar “un-American,” arguing that she was instead making a point about the Muslim lawmakers’ previous anti-Semitic comments.
“I’ve seen a lot of comments about my opening statement from Saturday night’s show, and I did not call Representative Omar un-American,” Pirro said.
My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution. I invite Representative Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today,” she added in the statement.
In response, Fox News took her off the air this past Saturday and it certainly looks like the Judge’s will not be on the air this upcoming weekend, either.
In fact, she may have even been suspended for a couple of weeks.
