Ilhan Omar thanks Fox News for denouncing Jeanine Pirro’s comments

In a rare rebuke of one of its star hosts, Fox News condemned Jeanine Pirro late Sunday for questioning whether Congresswoman Ilhan Omar's Islamic religious beliefs stand in opposition to the US Constitution.

'They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly'.

Pirro literally writes, "I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show", which is nearly exactly the same non-apology Fox News' Tucker Carlson, under intense criticism for comments appearing to support statutory rape, also made.

Pirro said of Omar's hijab, pictured: 'Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to sharia law which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?'

Omar has come under fire from both parties for recent remarks on Israel's treatment of Palestinians and USA financial ties to the nation.

The statement doesn't even say, "she is remorseful", "she apologizes", or "she would like to apologize to all people of the Muslim faith".

Jeanine Pirro, a legal pundit for the U.S. news channel, also accused the Somali-American congresswoman of being anti-Israel and a believer in sharia law, The Independent reported. She's not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat party...

Omar has drawn the ire of some members of Congress and members of her own party for comments she made about Israel.

On her show, Pirro noted that the Minnesota representative wears a hijab in apparent conformity to a directive in the Quran.

Fox News reproached Pirro for the comments in a statement, reports Mediaite.

Pirro's comments drew criticism from Fox News Channel, as well as at least one of her colleagues.

In a statement of her own, Pirro said her "intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don't support the Constitution".

"OH! So CNN and Fox News SUPPORT death sentence for gays!"

She wrote: "Can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren't American enough? The hijab is not the issue, her anti-Semitism is", said Dillon. Muslims' adherence to Sharia varies in the United States and around the world.

"She said nothing wrong, Fox, so your reproof of her comments are unfounded and have no basis in truth".
