Fox News commentator Jeanine Pirro blasted looters who broke into the Capitol building, calling their violence  “deplorable” and urging supporters of President Donald Trump to stop blaming antifa.

In her opening commentary Saturday, Pirro called the rampage “the most significant breach on our Capitol in over 200 years.”

“I want to be clear. The actions at the United States Capitol three days ago were deplorable, reprehensible, outright criminal,” Pirro declared.

“And I don’t care what happened in the past and or whether those who did it think the election was stolen. That is not justification. Seventy-five million of us are still angry about the election, but we don’t storm the Capitol.”

She said there was no blame for anyone else but those who were responsible for the damage and deaths, including that of a Capitol Police officer.

“And stop looking for other people to blame, including those dirt-bag terrorists antifa,” she said. “To those of you who did this, you did it, of your own will, and you will be held accountable. Take the veil of politics off. Be totally objective, anyone watching this must condemn it.”

She derided those who smashed their way into the building and destroyed property inside a “bunch of freaks.”

The FBI has said there’s no indication antifa activists were involved, CNBC reported.

The Washington Times retracted a story Wednesday that reported facial recognition software identified antifa members among those who stormed the Capitol.
