Fox News’ Pirro says Rep. Omar’s hijab could signal views ‘antithetical’ to Constitution

Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday questioned whether Rep. Ilhan Omar’s use of a hijab, a head covering traditionally worn by Muslim women, signaled that she held beliefs that are “antithetical” to the Constitution.

Pirro made the comments during an opening statement for her show “Justice with Judge Jeanine” that focused on the freshman Minnesota Democrat’s recent controversial criticisms of Israel, which were widely condemned as anti-Semitic. Pirro suggested that Omar, who is one of the first Muslim women elected to Congress, was driven to make her remarks because of her religion.

“Think about this: She’s not getting this anti-Israel sentiment doctrine from the Democrat Party. So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from?” Pirro said.

“Think about it. Omar wears a hijab, which according to the Quran 33:59, tells women to cover so they won’t get molested. Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” she asked.
