In less than a week, Donald Trump will head to Washington, D.C. and be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States. In the weeks leading up to the inauguration, liberal backlash has only increased, which has led to opposition in the right-wing media, including Fox News.

Fox News fires back

When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president, he quickly came under fire for his controversial comments about illegal immigrants from Mexico. For the rest of his campaign, Trump would have a cloud of controversy hanging over his head, while critics labeled him "racist," "sexist," "misogynist," "Islamophobic," and many other terms that have been used more frequently by those on the left of the political spectrum.

It's become common place for more liberal celebrities to express their outrage over Trump, including Rosie O'Donnell who called for "martial law" to prevent the president-elect from taking office. After Rep. John Lewis announced he would be boycotting the inauguration, Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro decided to respond, as reported by Fox News on January 15.

"Pray tell, Congressman, what's not legitimate?" Jeanine Pirro asked of John Lewis, before noting that Donald Trump "won by a large electoral college margin and in spite of efforts to do a recount, nothing changed." "Did you not take an oath to support the Constitution?" Pirro wondered, before stating, "You, a Congressman for 30 years know how to amend the Constitution if you don't like it."

Pirro on liberal Hollywood

"As for those liberal Hollywood leftists in need of a lobotomy like Rosie O'Donnell, they are straight up Communists," Jeanine Pirro said.

"Are you nuts?" she asked in reference to O'Donnell's comments about martial law. "Put on your big-girl pants and come to grips with the fact Donald Trump is your president!," the Fox News host continued, before telling liberals to "Swallow your pride. Get in line. Stop thinking you're so damn important."

Moving forward

The election of Donald Trump has only highlighted the wide political divide in the United States.

For more conservative news outlets like Fox News, Trump's election has been seen as a clear victory after years of attacking the Obama administration. On the left, the thought of the former host of "The Apprentice" making it to the White House had never been serious thought, but is now a reality that many still refuse to believe is true.
