KXIP vs KKR Live Score

Pirro received a lot of criticism for her monologue, including from one of her Fox News colleagues.

Pirro, host of the Fox News show "Justice with Judge Jeannine", on Saturday said the fact Omar wears a headscarf (hijab) may mean she doesn't support the US Constitution.

I'm pretty sure the Congresswoman has better things to do than debate a Fox news host over her specific level of disingenuousness, but she did thank Fox for their condemnation. "Where is she getting it from?" she asked.

And Hufsa Kamal, an associate producer for Fox News's "Special Report With Bret Baier", called out Pirro on Twitter for "spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America". "They do not reflect those of the network and we have addressed the matter with her directly", the network said in a statement.

In response to a question about who she thinks is paying USA lawmakers to support pro-Israel legislation, Omar tweeted "AIPAC!" - referring to the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, a prominent advocacy organization that spent $3.5 million on lobbying in 2018.

In a tweet, Omar thanked Fox News but did not commit to going on Pirro's show. Pirro's comments echo a common anti-Islamic belief that Muslims have allegiances to Sharia law over American law.

Omar faced several days of attacks from United States journalists, commentators, pro-Israel groups and others, including members of her own Democratic Party, who accused her of anti-Semitism. FOX News also produces FOX News Sunday on FOX Broadcasting Company and FOX News Edge.

Omar, who is a Somali-American and one of the first Muslim women elected to US Congress in November, has been at the center of a furious row over anti-Semitism after controversial comments she made about Israel. "I invite Rep. Omar to come on my show any time to discuss all of the important issues facing America today". "You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself".

And in response to a question about who she believes pays American politicians to be pro-Israel, Omar responded "AIPAC!" refering to the pro-Israel lobby group.

"I'm extremely distraught and disturbed by the things that are taking place in this nation for the last many years", he said.
