Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro opened her weekend program by denouncing the hundreds of rioters who stormed the Capitol building on Wednesday. The pro-Trump host condemned their actions and challenged those trying to shift blame.
“I want to be clear. The actions at the United States Capitol three days ago were deplorable, reprehensible, outright criminal,” Pirro stated. “These frightening and repulsive actions represent the most significant breach on our Capitol in over 200 years. And I don’t care with happened in the past and or whether those who did it think the election was stolen. That is not justification. Seventy-five million of us are still angry about the election, but we don’t storm the Capitol.”
Pirro told her viewers that Antifa wasn’t to blame for the violence. Pro-Trump rioters received 130 different criminal charges within one day of the riot as confirmed by the D.C. Metropolitan Police and U.S. Capitol Police. The search for suspects continues.
“And stop looking for other people to blame, including those dirt-bag terrorists antifa. To those of you who did this, you did it, of your own will, and you will be held accountable. Take the veil of politics off,” Pirro continued. “Be totally objective, anyone watching this must condemn it.”
Pirro went onto state the pro-Trump vigilantes looked like a “bunch of freaks” as they destroyed the Capitol building.
In an appearance on “Fox & Friends” earlier today, Pirro condemned the deplatforming of social media app Parler, calling it “dangerous.” Over the weekend, tech giants Amazon, Apple and Google severed business ties with the company. The development could destroy Parler unless it finds adequate server space.
The decision by Apple came hours after Parler became the top downloaded free app on the App Store.
