Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro delivered an earful on Vice President Kamala Harris during Tuesday’s broadcast of the network’s afternoon panel show “The Five.”
Pirro criticized Harris for claiming that the U.S.-Mexico border was “secure” — and repeatedly blaming former President Donald Trump and Republican governors for the ongoing crisis — saying that people could disregard anything she said after that because they could be certain that she was lying.
“Look, I don’t know how the woman gets out of bed and faces the world. She is a catastrophe,” Pirro began, joking that Harris should have skipped NBC’s “Late Night With Seth Meyers” and appeared on “Gutfeld!” with host Greg Gutfeld instead.
“The number one comedy show, which is — what is the name of that show?” she asked sarcastically as Gutfeld, seated across the table from Pirro, shuffled papers and laughed.
“Look, you know, maybe when she says the border is secure, maybe you shouldn’t have to listen to anything after that because you know it’s a lie,” she continued. “So it doesn’t matter whether that stops someone from hearing the other things she’s saying because you know right then and there that she’s lying.”
“And then she says, ‘I love Joe Biden,’” Pirro continued, pointing out the fact that Harris had effectively labeled Biden a segregationist from the debate stage during the 2020 presidential primary.
“She said, ‘Having been vice president, he knows what the job involves,’” Pirro added, explaining, “She’s basically selling herself to you saying because he was vice president, he could be a good president, so I could be a good president, too — but everybody knows Joe’s a disaster and you’re a disaster, too!”
Pirro went on to list a number of the specific issues that Harris — who was appointed to oversee the Biden administration’s efforts to gain control of the border and manage illegal immigration — had failed to address, such as rampant human and drug trafficking. Instead, Harris criticized Governors Ron DeSantis (R-FL) and Greg Abbott (R-TX) for transporting migrants to self-proclaimed sanctuary cities, arguing that they were derelict in their duty to take care of migrants who had arrived in their states.
