On Saturday, President Donald Trump sent out a random tweet encouraging his supporters to watch Judge Jeanine Pirro on Fox News later that night. As the broadcast begin, questions were quickly raised as to why the president wanted as many eyes on the show as possible.

Trump and Fox News

Over the last two weeks, Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan have come together in the hope that they could convince enough Republicans to support their new health care bill known as the American Health Care Act. However, not long after their plan was revealed, backlash quickly followed which included enough Republican lawmakers that the president was forced to pull the bill before it could even be put up for a vote.

Trump's decision to throw the towel in on health care was seen as a defeat and an embarrassment for the administration, which didn't sit well with many conservative commentators. As seen on Fox News on March 25, it appears that the right-wing media is taking the side of the commander in chief over the Speaker of the House.

Taking to his Twitter account on Saturday morning, Donald Trump wrote, "Watch @JudgeJeanine on @FoxNews tonight at 9:00 P.M." While the former host of "The Apprentice" has praised the network in the past, he usually doesn't call for people to watch a particular show at a certain time. Kicking off her broadcast, Judge Jeanine Pirro was quick to rip into Paul Ryan, going as far as calling for him to resign from his leadership role.

Ryan out?

"Ryan needs to step down as Speaker of the House," Jeanine Pirro said, before explaining "he failed to deliver the votes on his healthcare bill, the one trumpeted to repeal and replace ObamaCare." The Fox News host continued, accusing Ryan of using his "swagger and experience" to "sell" other Republicans "a bill of goods which ends up a complete and total failure and you allow our president, in his first 100 days, to come out of the box like that, based on what?"

Jeanine Pirro made a point to say that she hadn't discussed her opening monologue with the president, which is an odd comment to make by a cable news host, especially considering the timing as it was made just hours after Trump called on supporters to view the program.

Pirro concluded her comments but insisting, "I want to be clear. This is not on President Trump." Pirro's remarks echo similar sediments that came from fellow Fox News host Sean Hannity, who backed Trump over House Republicans on Friday night.
