Judge Jeanine Pirro let first lady Michelle Obama have it for her comments last week saying that due to Donald Trump’s victory, “we’re feeling what not having hope feels like.”
In her opening monologue on her Fox News program on Saturday, the judge said, “Since when does hope rise and fall with you and Barack in the White House?”
“This from a woman who, in 2008 at age 44, said ‘for the first time I’m proud of my country,’” Pirro added. “[Now] eight years later you’re out of hope, Michelle?”
“To try to convince America that once you and Barack exit the White House, hope is removed from America is an outrage!” she said.
The judge added another hope stealer was the first lady’s husband leaving the 13 Hours heroes on the roof in Benghazi, while he flew off in Air Force One to attend a Las Vegas fundraiser in the midst of his re-election campaign in 2012.
The Fox News personality said as Michelle prepares to leave the White House she may be in for a rude awakening. “Welcome to the America you created,” Pirro stated. “The one with the racial divide, a disrespect of law enforcement and the military, illegals cruising our borders, draining our schools and social services, ISIS and refugees on the rise.”
Pirro contrasted Obama’s hope-stealing actions with the hope Trump has offered Americans. She noted, as an example, that while the president said the jobs at the Carrier factory in Indiana could not be saved last summer, the president-elect intervened and kept them in America.
Trump addressed the first lady’s remarks about hope in a rally in Mobile, Ala., Saturday night.
“Michelle Obama said yesterday that there is no hope,” Trump said, according to the Washington Examiner. “I assume she was talking about the past, not the future. Because I’m telling you, we have tremendous hope. And we have tremendous promise and tremendous potential. We are going to be so successful as a country again. We are going to be amazing.”
Judge Pirro closed her monologue referencing a line the first lady delivered at the Democrat National Convention in July: “Michelle, I’m surprised at you. What happened to, ‘When they go low, we go high?’”
