Jeanine Pirro gave a glowing assessment of Donald Trump’s chances for 2020, saying that if the president decides to run for re-election, he would probably be unbeatable.
“I have to tell you. I don’t think he can be beat right now. I think the left is so disorganized,” Pirro told TheWrap in an interview Tuesday, saying that she could not think of a single Democrat who could pose a credible threat to Trump in 2020.
“They are just making fools of themselves. They protest and they are not even sure what they’re protesting,” she added. “If you say something that is an independent thought they’re offended. They’re snowflakes.”
Pirro, who has become one of President Trump’s most vocal defenders on Fox News, said he would even beat Barack Obama if the former president could run again, and drew a direct relationship between Obama’s legacy and Trump’s rise.
“Trump would have beaten Obama,” said Pirro. “One of the reasons we have a Donald Trump is because we had an Obama before him.”
Though there has been private speculation over whether President Trump actually wants to run in 2020, he has already publicly taken steps to do just that. Earlier this year, Trump announced that his 2016 digital media director Brad Parscale would be his campaign manager in 2020.
Once a sleepy presence on Fox News, Pirro’s program, “Justice With Judge Jeanine,” has become relevant as Trump has ascended to the presidency. The two have been personally close for decades and the president is said to watch her show every week. Pirro’s fiery monologues, which includes denouncing Robert Mueller and the Russia probe, are the show’s most famous staples.
The former New York prosecutor has expanded those monologues into a full-length book, which will be released later this month. On it’s Amazon page, “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy,” has just one review so far.
“Fantastic. Go get it!” Trump said, who has a long history of plugging books sympathetic to him on his Twitter page.
