After a two-week suspension for speaking her mind on Ilhan Omar and Sharia Law, Judge Jeanine returned to Fox News on Saturday night.
Hollywood Reporter reported that her show, Justice w/ Judge Jeanine, aired for the first time on Saturday night since March 9, when she questioned whether Omar’s practice of wearing a hijab is antithetical to the U.S. Constitution. The show was precluded on Saturday, March 16, and Saturday, March 23.
Though she didn’t personally address her absence, guest Rudy Giuliani did not shy away from congratulating Pirro for her return. “It’s an honor to be with you again,” he was quick to tell her. “You know what I think of you and your entire career. You’re a crusader for justice.”
Giuliani also reiterated that he’s glad Pirro is back on-air because she encompasses the “common sense” needed in this country. “At this time that our country is in trouble, we need your common sense voice. We need you.” Pirro simply smiled and replied “thank you” without saying anything else further.
Pirro was suspended for her comments, but the network never announced nor acknowledged the disciplinary action. “We strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments about Rep. Ilhan Omar,” Fox News said in a rare statement of disapproval on the night of March 10.

Don’t be satisfied with the Mueller report. This is bound to happen again b/c these arrogant, condescending, lying, leaking haters of you,me & the America that doesn’t have power, will do it again. And the only way to stop them is with justice. True justice- behind bars justice. pic.twitter.com/72aPr7ozmR
