Something very weird has been going on at Fox News.
The network has clearly shifted towards the Left, several hosts and guests continue to attack President Donald Trump, and a few top figures have already left the network in recent months.
Now, one top host is facing extreme backlash after exposing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi
Fox News’ Jeanine Pirro went scorched earth on Pelosi over the weekend and offered the Speaker some advice on actually working to help the American people.
During a segment Saturday night on her Fox program, Pirro mentioned Pelosi saying Trump needed intervention because he was not acting “fit” for office.
In response, Pirro spent her opening statement painting Pelosi as the crazy one and defending Trump’s comments casting doubt on Pelosi’s mental fitness.
At one point, the Fox News host said that Trump is not putting kerosene on the fire, Democrats are.
“He does not need an intervention, Nancy, you need the intervention,” Pirro began. “Nancy, you have not recovered from the 2016 election and it’s driving you batty.”
Pirro then dropped the hammer on Pelosi.
“Bottom line, Nancy, the man is doing what we elected him to do while you haven’t done a damn thing as you seethe in the hatred and vitriol and your obsession to get YOUR truth. Nancy, you already got the truth and Nancy, you can’t handle the truth. So just knock it the hell off, follow his lead and start doing the job you were elected to do.”
Democrats wasted little time going after Pirro.
Left-wing outlet Media Matters published a piece titled, “Right-wing media use Soleimani assassination to lie about 2015 Iran nuclear deal,” where the all-but call Pirro uneducated for “refusing to press” Trump on the Iran strike during her interview with POTUS.
Raw Story, another notorious liberal outlet, ran a story titled, “Trump and his aides lie all the time — why are they so bad at it?” In the piece, the authors suggested Pirro and other Fox News hosts are too stupid to lie.
The list goes on and one with liberal sites attacking Pirro and her colleagues.
But if you think Fox News would not — or has not considered — trying to remove Pirro from the air, you haven’t been paying attention.
Despite being with the network for many years and having a highly rated weekend program, we recently learned that Fox News did suspend Pirro a few months ago.
During an interview on Salem Radio Network’s “America First with Sebastian Gorka,” Pirro acknowledged she was suspended by Fox News.
Pirro is not suspended right now. She was referring to her suspension back in March over comments she made about Muslim Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar.

During a segment on her Fox program in March, Pirro went viral for calling out Omar for making several anti-Semitic.
In response, Fox News refused to air Pirro’s show for three weeks.
Pirro used her opening monologue to question whether Omar, a Muslim lawmaker, wearing a hijab meant she was loyal to Sharia Law and not the U.S. Constitution.
“Your party is not anti-Israel—she is,” Pirro said of Democrats and Omar.
“Think about it: Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran, 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested,” Pirro said.
“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” she asked.
In a statement released by the network, Pirro apologized and urged Omar to come on her show so they could have a conversation.
In response, Fox News took her off the air for nearly a month.
But beyond that, the changes at Fox News are more than noticeable to most.
Is it possible that Fox News is being run by liberals who are desperately trying to help take down Trump and prevent him from serving a second term in office?
