Judge Jeanine Pirro isn’t just a conservative, pro-Trump jurist, author, and political commentator — bad enough in the eyes of the hystericized left.

What really drives them crazy is the fact that it's because of women like Jeannine Pirro that Trump is president — and will probably be re-elected president.

An electoral majority of women voted Republican in 2016.

These women share Pirro’s values of intellectual independence, hard work and — like her — want to be left free to succeed on their merits.

But the Democratic Party has been taken over by radicals who want to punish success — including electoral success. These radicals believe in an odd form of democracy: One in which a minority of radicals decree how things ought to be — and everyone else had better agree. If they express disagreement by democratically supporting other-than-approved candidates, those elections must be reversed by any means necessary.

Pirro gets into this anti-democratic vengefulness in her latest book, "Radicals, Resistance and Revenge: The Left's Insane Plot to Remake America," which details the post-2016 running coup against the president which just recently — finally — fell apart.

But not from lack of effort.

The radical Left has weaponized disagreement — deploying smears in lieu of facts — to impugn the motives of those who don't share its radical agenda, including the tens of millions of women who didn't vote radical Left in the last election.

Including Pirro herself.

These women are "mostly white" and "without a college degree" goes the party line — deplorables, in the infamous words of the loser of the 2016 presidential contest.

But there's a problem.

Pirro — a lawyer — has several college degrees.

She also served as assistant DA of Westchester County, New York, in 1975, at the very height of the patriarchy's vise-like grip on the levers of power. And yet, this young, not-WASP woman, from a Lebanese immigrant family became one of the state's most prominent and successful officials.

How could this have happened? How can this be?

All those "racists" and "misogynists" in New York not only failed to oppress her — they voted for her.


When she ran for Westchester County District Attorney she won not just once but four consecutive times.

As DA, her aggressive prosecution of domestic violence cases earned her the support not only of women but of justice-minded people.

She defended actual rather than manufactured victims.

Pirro went on to become the first female president of the New York State District Attorneys Association and was subsequently asked by then-NY Governor George Pataki to chair the state's Commission on Domestic Fatality Review Board.

By 1990, she had become Judge Pirro — Westchester County, NY's first female judge — and then a TV judge whose no-nonsense style became hugely popular with audiences.

She got ratings without quotas.

And then it got worse — if you're a radical Leftist.

Pirro's 2018 book, "Liars, Leakers and Liberals" shot like a Saturn V rocket to the number one slot on both the New York Times and Amazon.com best-seller lists.

One assumes at least a few of the people who buy Pirro's books are women.

The radicalized Left doesn't even want to think about it.

So they ignore — and insult it. Women who support other-than-radical-left politics are dupes and fools; acting contrary to their own interests. But — as Pirro notes in her latest book — this isn't just demented, it's politically suicidal.

An electoral majority of women do not share the radical left's crazed raccoon ideas; they don't regard every man as a rapist — and every white man as a racist.

Many of these women have husbands, brothers, and sons; friends and colleagues.

And many of these women also have jobs — and have achieved success — and so know the radical left's cult of victimology, aggrievement, and entitlement are not the keys to it.

Pirro's personal success story does more than trigger sensibilities of the radical Left; it is a living, breathing refutation of the radical Left's embittered political assumptions and victimology narrative. Which presumes a kind of dead-in-the-water despair which only government can ameliorate.

Pirro's biography is one of optimism and opportunity; her story as American as apple pie — and the opposite of the sour grapes peddled by the radical Left.

Her trajectory — like Trump's — seems unstoppable. Which wasn't supposed to happen — in both their cases.

The fact that it has speaks volumes, not only about the increasingly batty politics of the hystericized Left — it also says a great deal about the political sanity of both Pirro and Trump.

They know that the politics of identity and perpetual victimhood are for losers.

Something neither Pirro nor the president have ever been.
