Pirro: Republican Infighting Making Them 'Look Ridiculous'

 January 6, 2023

Television judge and Fox News Host Jeanine Pirro said on Jan. 5 that she is "angry" at House Republicans for making the GOP look like a joke to the rest of the world by not supporting Kevin McCarthy for speaker of the House.

She wanted to know why somebody like Lauren Boebert who needed help from the entire Republican Party to win her race would wait until a public forum to embarrass her party, saying:

I’m angry about it. They’re making the Republicans look ridiculous. First of all, I like Kevin McCarthy. Why wasn’t this done ahead of time? Why are we doing this in front of the public? We look like a bunch of fools. And Lauren Boebert – you know, with all due respect – the woman barely won her race. You’re holding out until Kevin falls. What is the alternative? What do you want? What is the option? What can people agree on? You want the Republicans to get the Democrats to get a speaker of the House.

Pirro called it an embarrassment, adding:

This is an embarrassment. It has gone on long enough. It shouldn’t happen this way.

These people that McCarthy gave money to are voting against him. What do they want? They have no other alternative. They’re egomaniacs who’ve got no answers and they oughta just be quiet and just go along with the majority at this point. If you don’t want to vote for a bill, don’t vote for it. And that’s the end of it.
