In her opening monologue on Saturday, “Justice w/Judge Jeanine” host Jeanine Pirro delivered yet another scathing rebuke of President Barack Obama and what declared to be his lack of interest in leadership.
Pirro pointed to the situations in the Israel-Hamas conflict, Ukraine and immigration as areas where Obama has been lacking.
“Let me put this in Jeanine-speak: The world is going to hell in a hand-basket and Barack Obama doesn’t have the leadership, the instincts or even the interest to get America back on track,” Pirro said. “Why do I say this? Consider the following: Sixty percent of Americans disapprove of the president’s handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict. Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of Ukraine, Iraq and Afghanistan situations. And 68 percent of Americans disapprove of his handling of immigration and believe it to be an extremely serious problem.
Later in her monologue, she indicated where Obama has been ineffective in these areas and asked whose side he was on in these conflicts.
“At this point any rational person would have to ask, whose side are you really on? You’re so quick to tell Israel to stop shelling after hundreds are killed in Gaza. And while there’s no question that everyone bemoans the killing of innocents, why did not you follow your own threat as over 100,000 were killed in Syria? And in Ukraine you really scared Putin. Investigators still haven’t received complete access to the crash site. And as of today, as many as 80 bodies remain on the ground.”
“But hey, not to worry,” she continued. “Ebola patients are entering the United States for the first time in history. And on the economic front, the stock market almost crashed this week. Yes, it is a crying shame that Congress went on vacation in the midst of all this. But that you talk out of both sides of your mouth, Mr. President, my guess is that you’ll object vacation in Martha’s Vineyard very soon. A little golf, a little pool, a few fundraisers. But while you’re relaxing, how about you give some serious thought to reading some books on leadership since that’s what we’re paying you to do?”
