“You awoke a sleeping giant!”
Judge Jeanine Pirro gave one of her more impassioned opening statements on Saturday’s show, tearing into former Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney, who she said proved the “establishment is panicked” over the success of front-runner Donald Trump.
“There’s an insurrection coming. Mitt Romney just confirmed it,” Pirro warned.
“We’ve watched governors, the National Review, conservative leaders, establishment and party operatives trash Donald Trump,” she said. “But Mitt Romney will always be remembered as the one who put us over the edge and awoke a sleeping giant, the silent majority, the American people.”
Pirro insisted the establishment wants a brokered convention.
“Mitt essentially called for a brokered convention where the Republican nominee will be selected by party activists and delegates irrespective of their state’s choice,” she said. “You want a brokered convention? A primer Mitt. Whenever we have a brokered convention we lose. Dewey and Ford emerged from a brokered convention to lose the general election.”
The Fox News host said “party elites and elders” concerned about protecting America from falling into the abyss don’t grasp that “we’re already in the abyss. The Obama abyss.”
And Judge Jeanine directed her fire at both parties.
“We are sick and tired of legislators of modest means who leave Congress multimillionaires, whose spouses and families get all the contracts from selling the post offices to accessing insider information so they can buy property and flip it,” she said. “You’re so entrenched that you’re willing to give Hillary Clinton a win. It doesn’t matter to you which party, crony capitalism and its paradigm will not change for the elite. Let the American people suffer along the way.”
