On the Sunday broadcast of “Justice” on Fox News Channel, host Judge Jeanine Pirro criticized Nikki Haley for targeting GOP presidential front-runner Donald Trump in the GOP response to President Barack Obama’s last State of the Union address on Tuesday.
In Pirro’s “Opening Statement” segment, she directed her ire at Haley for attacking a fellow Republican instead of attacking the Democratic Party’s “so-called leadership.” Pirro urged the South Carolina governor to get behind Trump because he is the party’s front-runner.
The Republican party is in real trouble. They proved it to all of us this week. Their primary strategy as it relates to Donald Trump right now is dead wrong. It will cost them the election and the White House. There’s trouble brewing behind the scenes that has occasionally seeped out. This week, Republicans took a direct hit at Donald Trump. their leading Republican presidential frontrunner in every national poll. Last I heard, only animals eat their young, and maybe a few cannibals.
Republican Governor Nikki Haley, designated by Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell to rebut President Obama’s last State of the Union address, instead of saying how the Democratic nation has failed us takes a shot and chastises Donald Trump. Instead of commenting how out of sync Democrats are with the American people, how Obama’s feckless foreign policy has turned us into an international joke repeatedly negotiating with terrorists creating safety and security problems for Americans, the world has never been a more dangerous place, the military never more shackled, the Second Amendment never in more danger and our children and grandchildren never in more debt. The most dangerous terrorist organization of the world has even the world has ever known is now focused on us and Nikki Haley takes a shot at Donald Trump?
Who anointed you to take a shot at the leading contender for president in your own party in a nationally televised historic rebuttal when you could have laid out a strategy of how the very fabric of America has changed under this Democratic so-called leadership. How about you turn your unsolicited comments toward the president’s comments about your party? Why don’t you tell him to tone down the rhetoric?
