During her opening monologue to Saturday’s show, Fox News host Jeanine Pirro questioned whether Minnesota Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar’s hijab is a symbol of loyalty to Sharia law, which she warned is “antithetical” to the U.S. Constitution.
“Is her adherence to this Islamic doctrine indicative of her adherence to Sharia law, which in itself is antithetical to the United States Constitution?” she asked, as she quoted the Quaran.
Pirro’s question came amid a wave of controversy over Omar’s recent comments about Israel that have sparked an anti-Semitism debate in Congress.
Pirro argued that Omar’s alleged “anti-Israel sentiment” did not come from the Democratic Party.
“Your party is not anti-Israel. She is,” Pirro said. “So if it’s not rooted in the party, where is she getting it from?”
