Judge Jeanine slams hypocritical Obama: ‘Whose side are you really on?’

President Obama slammed Congress for rushing through the final day before breaking for its August recess on Friday, but Judge Jeanine Pirro slammed right back Saturday.

judgejeanine0803“The world is going to hell in a hand basket and Barack Obama doesn’t have the leadership, the instincts, or even the interests to get America back on track,” Pirro said.

In the “Opening Statement” segment of “Justice with Judge Jeanine,” Pirro ran down Obama’s unfavorable poll numbers on the illegal immigration crisis in the United States as  well as his dithering on foreign policy amid open fighting in Ukraine and Israel’s war in Gaza.

While illegal immigrants are processed, then scattered around the country by the federal agents that are supposed to control them, Russian-backed separatists still keep international inspectors from the site where a Malaysia Airlines flight was shot down over Ukraine July 17. And in the Middle Ease, a much-hyped 72-hour cease fire negotiated by Secretary of State John Kerry failed to hold for even an hour as Hamas terrorists attacked Israeli soldiers from ambush.

“At this point,” Pirro said, addressing Obama, “any rational person would have to ask, ‘Whose side are you really on?'”

Obama might not have a plan for the U.S. response to any of the three latest crises, Pirro said, but he does have a heaping helping of hypocrisy to criticize Congress while planning his own vacation getaway scheduled to begin next week.

“Yes, it is a crying shame that Congress went on vacation in the midst of all this,” Pirro said. “Because you talk out of both sides of your mouth, Mr. President, my guess is you’ll be on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard very soon.”

Officially, Obama’s vacation is set for Aug. 9.

First, he’s got to get through his birthday party. Obama turns 53 Monday.
