While it’s a given that facts are often optional at Fox News, something Jeanine Pirro said Tuesday on “The Five” suggests that the former judge needs to try and brush up on her recent history.
During a discussion of the anti-vaccine trucker protests in Canada, Pirro whined about Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to use emergency powers, complaining that Trudeau “is now going to listen to” President Joe Biden:
“Biden now has the final word on what you should do if someone is protesting peacefully. Biden, the same guy who in the summer of 2020 decided he would allow people to burn down streets and businesses and create all kinds of problems and arson and criminal acts and police injured.”
Who wants to tell her?

Sorry, Jeanine, but Biden didn’t take the oath of office until January 20, 2021, meaning that it was your favorite failed head of state, Donald Trump, who allowed people to “burn down streets and businesses.”
It didn’t take long before social media began to mock Pirro for her fact-free statement:

Just like how Obama didn’t stop 9/11

She doesn’t know who was president in 2020? And the rest of “the five” don’t know either. Now that’s informed journalism 😒

That decision nearly cost Biden his re-election in 2020. I remember it like it was only 23 pallets of boxed wine ago.

Trust me, this is no accident. This was completely on purpose.
Many Republicans think Obama was president on 9/11/2001.
This is misinformation. It’s to add fear, uncertainty and doubt and confusion into the information streams.
