Fox Host: I Didn't Collude With Trump Before Bashing Ryan

Fox News' "Justice with Judge Jeanine"

By    |   Friday, 31 Mar 2017 08:34 PM

A Fox News host said in an interview published Friday she did not collude with President Donald Trump before she bashed House Speaker Paul Ryan last weekend.

Jeanine Pirro hosts "Justice with Judge Jeanine" and received a boost last Saturday when Trump tweeted to his 27.2 million followers that they should watch her show:

As it turned out, Pirro opened her program by arguing that Ryan should step down from his speakership after his healthcare bill failed to garner enough support. Trump said he was unaware of her plans to bash Ryan, and he later called up the speaker to apologize.

Pirro said Trump's public support for her show was a surprise to her.

"No! No! No! No!" Pirro told TheWrap when asked if she had given Trump a heads-up about her Ryan bashing.

"In fact, I had just come from Maine — my daughter is getting married in Maine," she added. "I flew to D.C. and someone said, 'The president tweeted your show. … I said, 'He did not!' And then it was like, 'Yeah, he did. And it was like, 'Why?'"

Trump, Ryan, and other top Republicans lobbied hard to have the American Health Care Act pass, but some Republicans — namely, the House Freedom Caucus — did not back the bill.

Trump and Ryan decided to cancel last Friday's vote on the House floor. Trump said afterward he appreciated the work Ryan put in trying to get it passed, although his aides reportedly were not happy with Ryan's performance.

When TheWrap asked Pirro if she believed Trump was plugging her show for no apparent reason, she said, "Yes, and that's the God's-honest truth."
