President Trump’s personal attorney, Rudy Giuliani, on Saturday praised Fox News host Jeanine Pirro as a “crusader for justice” as she made her return to hosting her show on the network.

“It’s an honor to be with you again. You know what I think of you and your entire career. You’re a crusader for justice,” he said at the start of an appearance on Pirro’s show, “Justice with Jeanine.”

Prior to Saturday, Pirro had been off air for two weeks after suggesting during her March 9 show that Rep. Ilhan Omar’s (D-Minn.) religious beliefs were at odds with the U.S. Constitution.

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

Fox News condemned Pirro’s comments and reportedly suspended her over them. 

Pirro in a statement said she did not call Omar “un-American.

“My intention was to ask a question and start a debate, but of course because one is Muslim does not mean you don’t support the Constitution. I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today,” Pirro said.

President Trump, who has appeared on her show, later called on Fox News “bring back” Pirro.

“Bring back @JudgeJeanine Pirro. The Radical Left Democrats, working closely with their beloved partner, the Fake News Media, is using every trick in the book to SILENCE a majority of our Country,” he wrote in a tweet.

Pirro had scheduled an appearance on Sean Hannity’s program last week, but it was canceled due to what the Fox News host called a “serious family emergency.”
