Trump ignores New Zealand massacre to rant about Jeanine Pirro’s Fox News show being pulled
In the wake of a deadly anti-Muslim shooting rampage that left 49 people dead in Christchurch, New Zealand, and amid a self-declared national emergency over immigration via the United States’ southern border, the President of the United States has taken to his twitter account to inform the country of what really matters: how he was portrayed on a Saturday Night Live rerun, and the lack of his favorite hosts on Fox news.
In the early hours of Sunday morning, President Trump complained about the popular weekend parody program, suggesting that the FCC and even the Federal Election Commission get involved.

Then — with a break to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and more attacks on deceased Senator and war hero John McCain — it was time to defend embattled Fox news hosts Jeanine Pirro and Tucker Carlson.

Pirro is off the air for a week after she made Islamophobic comments about Congresswoman Ilhan Omar. Last Saturday, the television host claimed that Pirro, being Muslim, could not support U.S. law.
Carlson, meanwhile, faced a brutal week where several tapes of his call-in segments with morning “shock jock” DJ “Bubba the Love Sponge” were brought to light, including several incidents of the host defending convicted pedophile Warren Jeffs.
The President has already been under fire for his response to the New Zealand shooting, including sending “best wishes” to grieving New Zealanders. With his Sunday morning rants about television shows, it would seem that he has already forgotten these shootings.
