Fox News host Jeanine Pirro assailed President Obama on Sunday for pointing out the drop in crime over the last 25 years.
Although statistics show a decline in crime, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump continues to claim that the United States is facing a moment of “crises” and crime is worsening. Obama responded by saying Trump’s perception of America “doesn’t really jive with most people.”
Pirro, in return, criticized Obama, because he was “strangely injecting himself into a presidential race.”
“The president actually said Donald Trump’s vision of America was wrong, and says there is much less violence than 20 or 30 years ago,” she said. “Now I don’t want to rain on your parade Mr. President, but the number of firearms in the United States has doubled in the last 20 years, maybe that’s what is actually making us less violent.”
Then strangely did a reverse and attacked Obama over gun violence.
“We are seeing an enormous homicide increases in large cities like Milwaukee, Denver, Baltimore, Saint Louis, Cleveland, Las Vegas, and even his own hometown of Chicago, where kids are so used to the report of a gun that they don’t even run when they hear gunfire,” she said.
