On Fox News, Judge Jeanine Pirro, one of Trump’s staunchest and loudest supporters commended Kelly’s “leadership” and somehow reasoned that we should blame Obama (kind of).
She said that Kelly found out about the abuse after the media and made a decision about Porter within 40 minutes.
Pirro told her audience to stop blaming Pirro and “for everyone who is looking for someone to blame, chill out,” she exclaimed. “You want to blame someone, blame it on the batterer.”
“You want to stop a four-star general who makes a decision within 40 minutes because you hate Donald Trump? Find another scapegoat. You might want to look at the last president,” Pirro declared.
So, we should blame Porter, but it’s also okay to blame Obama for a person Donald Trump hired? How is this at all logical?
Pirro then brought on former Trump aide Sebastian Gorka to say something equally as stupid. He suggested that the FBI deliberately held up the giving Porter security clearance so that they this scandal could erupt and damage Trump’s administration more. The Trump team’s constant attacks on the FBI is getting pretty desperate now.
Pirro not only lied to her audience about the events, she told them to blame Obama for something utterly unrelated to him. Last week, Sean Hannity blamed the stock market plummeting on Obama, which is now the second dumbest thing a Fox News anchor tried to blame the former president for.
