CNN Business reports:
Jeanine Pirro was off the air at Fox News on Saturday, one week after she was widely denounced for doubting Congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s patriotism. Last Saturday night Pirro questioned whether Omar’s Islamic religious beliefs stand in opposition to the US Constitution, prompting Fox to say “we strongly condemn Jeanine Pirro’s comments.”
The show did not appear on this weekend’s cable schedule guide. In its place was an unusual repeat of a documentary series.
Pirro has not said anything about taking a vacation. She hasn’t tweeted since last weekend. All together, the circumstances suggest that she has been suspended by Fox in the wake of her comments. But if she has been suspended, Fox is not saying so. A network spokeswoman said “we are not commenting on internal scheduling matters.”

The circumstances suggest that Jeanine Pirro has been suspended by Fox in the wake of her anti-Omar comments. But Fox won’t confirm. And she definitely hasn’t been fired… so we’ll see when she is back on the air https://t.co/pp2Rn3QYb5
