Judge Jeanine launches withering takedown of flight attendant for dissing Army Sgt.

Judge Jeanine Pirro’s “Opening Statement” on Saturday should have opened some eyes into how some people treat the servicemen and women who keep this country safe.

And they should be ashamed.

judgejeanine1012newPirro’s subject was an in-flight outrage that took place Thursday on a US Airways flight from Portland, Ore., to Charlotte, N.C., when a flight attendant refused to allow an Army Rangers sergeant to hang up his jacket covered in campaign decorations in the plane’s closet for first-class passengers.

A fellow passenger began posting about the incident on Twitter and outrage started building on social media almost immediately.

By Saturday, US Airways had apologized for the incident.

But by Saturday, Judge Jeanine was ready to go on the air, and she was withering.

“Have we all lost our minds?” she asked in utter disbelief.

“Miss Not-so-Friendly Skies’ job is to accommodate passengers, and you can’t assist a decorated war veteran?… Do you think for one minute that if a Hollywood celebrity had asked that same attendant to hang up his jacket she would have refused?

Judge Jeanine knows the answer to that, and so does everyone else.

And check out the punishment she suggests for the flight attendant. It definitely doesn’t involve Hollywood celebrities.
