This week on “Justice”, Judge Jeanine Pirro fired back at Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) over his claims Donald Trump is not a legitimate president-elect, and criticized comedian Rosie O’Donnell for her recent comments about the New York businessman, Fox News Insider reported.
Lewis, 76, a longtime Atlanta representative and a Civil Rights era leader, told NBC that Russian meddling in the 2016 election delegitimized Trump’s win and said he will not attend the inauguration.
“Pray tell, Congressman, what’s not legitimate?” Pirro asked, “Trump won by a large electoral college margin and in spite of efforts to do a recount… nothing changed.”
She noted Lewis’ experience in the Civil Rights movement, where he fought for “equal rights and equal justice”, and was rewarded with a 30-year tenure in Congress, but questioned why Lewis would not extend the same reward to Trump.
“Did you not take an oath to support the Constitution? You, a Congressman for 30 years know how to amend the Constitution if you don’t like it.”
Of O’Donnell, Pirro said the actress should never have made even a passing reference to instituting “martial law” to prevent Trump’s inauguration.
