Judge Jeanine Rants About Barack Obama After The View Hosts Corner Her on Trump's Response to Russian Meddling

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro made a rambling appearance on The View where she deflected questions about President Donald Trump’s traitorous behavior in Helsinki by blaming former President Barack Obama.

“I’m not saying [Trump and Putin] should be friends. But what I’m saying is this,” Pirro said before beginning a bizarre rant about Obama and the Russian annexation of Crimea.

“Barack Obama stood by and let Russia go in,” she said.

“But for Obama drawing that red line in the sand and doing nothing about it,” she continued before saying, “We wouldn’t have killed hundreds of Russians who were over there.”

The audience applauded after the hosts reminded Pirro that Obama is “no longer the president."

Pirro forwarded the conspiracy theory that the investigation in Hillary Clinton's emails was "fake."
