Trump Offers Fox News Free Advice: 'Be Strong & Prosper, Be Weak & Die!'

Today on Twitter, President Donald J. Trump advised Fox News to "stay strong" and "fight back with vigor" against political correctness after host Judge Jeanine Pirro was absent last night from her show, "Justice." Pirro's absence comes a week after she questioned Rep. Ilhan Omar's stance on Sharia law which sparked backlash and accusations of Islamophobia. 

"Your party is not anti-Israel, she is," Pirro said referring to the Democratic Party and Rep. Ilhan Omar. "So, if it's not rooted in the Party, where is she getting it from? Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won't get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?"

The network issued a statement condemning her words, but it was not obvious she would not host her television show this week.

This morning, the president slammed the news outlet for working "soooo hard on being politically correct" and warned the "Radical Left Democrats" were working with the "Fake News Media" to "SILENCE a majority of our country."

Tucker Carlson, host of Fox News' 'Tucker Carlson Tonight' has also come under fire from the left regarding decades-old audio featuring crass jokes about women, sex, and foreigners. Carlson promised to never give into the "mob" and continued to host his show all week. It is unclear when Pirro will return.
