Donald Trump and his supporters are doing everything they can to distract from the fact that Trump has just agreed to pay a $25 million settlement for his numerous fraud lawsuits – and they’re doing this by focusing heavily on Mike Pence’s run-in with the Hamilton cast.
First, Trump went on a Twitter rant about how the cast of Hamilton ‘harassed’ his beloved Vice President-elect (even though their statement to Pence was completely respectful). Then a day after, a belligerent Trump supporter interrupted a Hamilton play in Chicago by spewing profanities, and now Fox News hosts are having their own meltdowns over the Broadway show’s move to stand up for all Americans.
Last night, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro had a truly bizarre meltdown on-air when she addressed the Hamilton controversy. Completely ignoring Pence’s long history of bigotry and promoting policies that severely oppress the American people, Pirro had the nerve to call the actions of the Hamilton cast “reverse racism.” She said it “tee’d up hate for a man who has done nothing to deserve this inappropriate and disgusting behavior.”
And Pirro’s insane rant was just beginning. Echoing the sentiments of basically every moronic Trump supporter we’ve seen since the election, Pirro said:
“You had your week to cry your eyes out and have your temper tantrum. You holier-than-thou liberals in this country have to start looking in the mirror. Last night violates everything you say you stand for.”
Referring to liberals and democrats as “damn hypocrites”, Pirro continued her rant in complete ignorance that it was Hillary Clinton who had actually won the popular vote in this “rigged” election:
“You think that you and people who think like you are the only ones who deserve respect? Let me tell you something. This guy won fair and square in spite of the rigged system that you think is so democratic. Your party, your candidate was rejected and you lost… The middle class and low income classes have had enough. And they didn’t just reject your presidential candidate, they rejected your Senate, your House and your governorships.”
Pirro sounded just about ready to explode as she tried to wrap this rant up. You can watch the whole crazy thing below:
