Beloved Fox News anchor Judge Jeanine Pirro is off the air for a second Saturday, after backlash over her comments about Muslim congresswoman Ilhan Omar (D-Minn.) two weeks ago.

Pirro was blasted by her own network after she questioned whether Rep. Omar is loyal to Sharia because she wears a hijab. Pirro speculated that the significance behind a hijab must also be in conflict with the ideals of the U.S. Constitution.

In addition to the rebuke by Fox News, Pirro’s remarks were also slammed by Muslim Fox News producer Hufsa Kamal Khan, who tweeted in outrage, “@JudgeJeanine can you stop spreading this false narrative that somehow Muslims hate America or women who wear a hijab aren’t American enough? You have Muslims working at the same network you do, including myself. K thx.”

The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) has demanded that Fox News FIRE Pirro over her remarks, which they claim are “Islamaphobic,” and have called on all advertisers to boycott Fox until Pirro is gone.

Pirro has broken her silence on the matter by posting brief updates on her Facebook page.  In one post she wrote, “For legal reasons, I cannot speak about what’s going on right now. I’m told that viewers are boycotting Fox News to support me and, while I cannot officially endorse a boycott, I can say that I love my viewers. ”

In another post on Friday, Pirro added, “I’m overwhelmed by the support you’ve shown me! I tear up every time I try to read through your tens of thousands of lovely messages. For legal reasons, I can’t comment on what’s happening here, but I also can’t help but be suspicious about losing my megaphone just when the Mueller report is released. I pray to God I soon have a platform to discuss that report with the American people!”

In another Facebook post, Pirro thanked OANN for their support.

Saturday afternoon, she posted a photo of herself and President Trump, and wrote, “True friends have your back.”

President Trump had expressed his outrage over the situation in a series of Twitter posts last Sunday:

    Judge Jeanine we are behind you 100 percent, the Truth hurts and you were absolutely correct in your remarks.
    We have seen the truth from Omar who is an Anti Semitic and Anti American, she is a danger to America.
    For CAIR to speak out is a disgrace in this country that should have no room for Terrorist groups and that’s what they are.
    We have a huge problem in America having these Terrorist in Congress and CAIR who has been labelled a Terrorist group by Arab Nations in the halls of Congress, we need to take our country back before we look like Europe and England.

    Tell it Judge Jeanine! If Muslims are here and they believe in Allah and the women wear their hijabs, and they want America to change laws to fit their values, then they are NOT like us. Period. Bottom line: Fear them and call it what it is!

    The Third Jihad has come to roost in your House of Representatives and they are COWARDS and complicit if they don’t act swiftly to impeach and remove the traitors in their midst (Omar and Tlaib).

    I miss seeing Judge Pirro on FOX. There are changes taking place at FOX, the one conservative Network, that are frightening. We all need to keep our options open. With enough funding perhaps another network could be formed. Diversity of news and opinion is essential for a free society.

    The liberal PC world is the Trojan Horse in the USA and if not stopped will destroy us all including those very liberals.
    The Judge must be allowed to speak or the first casualty is Freedom of Speech, what is next?
