Fox News host Jeanine Pirro used her opening statement on “Justice with Judge Jeanine” over the weekend to offer a little debate advice to Donald Trump on the eve of his first presidential debate.
Stripped to its essentials, she told the Republican presidential nominee to be himself but remain presidential when he meets his opponent, Hillary Clinton, on the debate stage.

“Donald, it’s real simple. You’re new at this. But if you are yourself, you will obliterate her like you did those 16 others on those Republican primary debate stages,” Pirro told Trump.
“Your opponent cannot handle the truth. She can’t handle a direct question, nor is she able to give a direct response. Do not let her do the Washington two-step. Stay on offense without being offensive.”
She also said he shouldn’t hold back on account of Clinton’s sex — he should go after her as though she were a man.
“She wants to be the leader of the free world– gender is irrelevant. Make her prove she’s up to it both mentally, physically and historically.”
He told Trump to “hold her feet to the fire. Make her outline exactly what she’s done for us and for our pocketbooks — as opposed to hers.”
Pirro also suggested he dispense with nicknames like “crooked Hillary” when on the debate stage, in an effort to be presidential.
“You’re a smart man, Donald. This is the time to be presidential. No smirks. No faces.”
Pirro suggested that Clinton also be herself — “Cold. Calculating. Imperialistic.”
“And Hillary, don’t shy away from talking about your record. The state of the world in chaos with you in charge of foreign policy– unless of course you don’t want to,” she said.
