On Saturday, the Fox News Channel’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” host Judge Jeanine Pirro said Hillary Clinton ” is only out for herself.”
“I want someone who says what she means and means what she says, I want someone who understands and respects the Judeo-Christian ethic upon which this country was founded. I want someone who cares about us, someone who cares about the American people. Hillary Clinton is not that person. She is only out for herself. It’s never her fault, it’s all about convenience, she didn’t know, and in the end what difference does it make? If you think that Hillary Clinton, the self-described champion of women and children cares about you, your kids, or anyone else for that matter, you are sorely mistaken” she said.
Pirro’s commentary focused on Clinton’s re-telling of her defense of a child rapist unearthed by the Washington Free Beacon. Pirro stated “if you care about children, you don’t gloat, and you don’t laugh about a 41 year-old pedophile charged with first degree rape of a 12 year-old 6th grader.”
Pirro continued, slamming Hillary for attacking the girl who accused her client of rape, saying “you blame the victim and you laugh about it. You take a bow and you laugh that you gamed the system, proudly announcing that you got the rapist two months instead of 30 years to life. And you want us to believe that you’re going to protect us?”
She concluded by accusing Hillary of being dishonest in her claims that she was ethically conflicted by her work on the case, and arguing that while it was Hillary’s job to defend her client “it’s totally another thing to laugh about gaming the system, to laugh that your client gamed the lie detector, trashing a victim, laughing about a 12 year-old raped by two men. How can we expect a woman as cold and calculating as you to be a protector of all Americans?”
