Thousands of loyal Fox News viewers turned especially sour against the network over the weekend not only after former Vice President Joe Biden was declared president-elect, but also when they realized that one of their favorite weekend shows had seemingly vanished.
According to reporting by Newsmax, fans of Judge Jeanine Pirro’s highly-rated show were stunned when she didn’t appear on Saturday evening — later finding out that she has apparently been suspended by Fox News out of fears that she would use the show to defend President Donald Trump.
Newsmax reported that their sources, who are familiar with the inner-workings of the network, made the decision to at least temporarily suspend Pirro’s show for the weekend.
Instead of airing Pirro’s show, the right-leaning network instead chose to air extended coverage of election analysis, as well as a victory speech Biden delivered to a jubilant Delaware audience on Saturday night.
Pirro, however, didn’t seem publicly upset at her show being bumped for extended election coverage, as she made a Saturday evening appearance on Twitter in which she promoted her Cameo offerings while adding in her support for the president.

Cameo, a popular app that connects celebrities with users of the app, allows the users to pay a sum of money to have the celebrity record a personal message or greeting for friend or family.
Pirro, who reportedly charges $249 for a short video, suggested to her Twitter fans that if anyone was in need of a message of support over the election, she’s ready and available to record and send one through the app.
The judge received a mixed bag of criticisms and praise in the comments section of the Twitter video, with many of her fans pleading with her to leave Fox News and join the Newsmax team. Others devolved into hurling nasty, ad hominem attacks.
According to WDBY, Pirro is currently promoting her latest book, “Don’t Lie To Me, and Stop Trying To Steal Our Freedom,” which was released in September.
