‘You Work for Us!’ Judge Janine Addresses Congress About COVID Relief Bill
Judge Jeanine Pirro had a fiery message Saturday for congress members who failed to do their jobs for the American people in their handling of the COVID relief bill. “How do you justify taking money from America to give to foreign countries and special interests during a pandemic?” the judge asked Congress in her opening statement on Fox News’ Justice With Jeanine. “You arrogant, selfish politicians think that $600 is enough? … You work in the House of Representatives. It is the people’s house. It was built for those who were closest to the people. You work for us! We pay your salary. … You spend our money, not yours.”
The COVID relief bill will give away $10 million for gender programs in Pakistan, $1.4 billion to the Asian Reassurance Initiative Act and $37 million to make sure Philippine students “don’t play hookey.” For starters.
Judge Jeanine went on to say that if Congress can’t afford to take care of Americans, the American people can’t afford to have them in the people’s house. “You’ve proven that you’re disloyal, that your health and your salaries are more important than the people who put you in power, naively. You’re a disdain for the people you represent. And it will be your undoing, trust me on that.”
President Trump did sign the COVID relief bill, but Congress is working to meet his demand to raise the payment to Americans to $2000.
