Dirty Work: Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro Demands Paul Ryan “Has to Step Down as Speaker of the House” After Donald Trump Promotes Her Show All Day


Donald Trump Jeanine PirroTonight on Fox News at 9pm Eastern Jeannie Pirro, Fox anchor, demanded Paul Ryan step down as Speaker of the House in Congress. “Paul Ryan has to step down as Speaker of the House. The reason? He failed to deliver the votes” on the healthcare bill– “the one he had seven years to work on.” Pirro blames Ryan for the whole health care vote disaster. AND —She says she hasn’t spoken to Donald Trump, but earlier today Trump PROMOTED her show on his Twitter feed.

Here’s Trump’s Tweet at 10am or so this morning:

Here’s Pirro six minute rant this evening doing Trump’s dirty work:

Is anyone running Fox News? What the hell is going on? The weirdest thing here is that Trump hired the hit woman and then ANNOUNCED it in advance of the hit! I know Ryan is from Wisconsin but he must understand what just happened.

Keep refreshing…
