In a week where serious events took up most of the news, we had the Whoopi Goldberg/Judge Jeanine feud to add a bit of bizarre levity to the whole thing.
Pirro, as you may have heard, was invited on ABC’s “The View” only to be summarily told “goodbye” by co-host Goldberg when Pirro brought up violence committed by illegal immigrants. Because clearly, when someone gives you the phlegmatic attempt at summary dismissal that appending “goodbye” to the end of an argument entails, they’ve obviously won. If there’s anything that my years of scrutinizing public discourse has taught me, it’s that. . .
Pirro had the last laugh on her Fox News show Saturday, giving some gratitude to Goldberg for the free advertisement.
“I do want to thank Whoopi and the ladies for helping to make my book No. 1 on Amazon and Barnes and Noble. So go out and get a copy if you haven’t already,” a smiling Pirro said during her show, according to the Daily Wire.
“All of you saw it, and most of you probably heard both my and Whoopi’s version of what you didn’t see after I was thrown off the set. But I’m not here to rehash old news, and in the spirit of tonight’s opening statement, I’d like to close the book on this and move on,” she said. “And I’d like you to do so, as well.” (Read more from “Whoopi Is Finished: Judge Jeanine Puts Goldberg in Her Place” HERE)
