Jeanine Pirro snaps at Tarlov in battle over party priorities: ‘I asked you specifically about the pronouns!’

Jeanine Pirro’s patience ran extremely thin with Fox News co-host Jessica Tarlov over the “tyranny of the minority” concerning gender identity and pronouns, verbally smacking the leftist over it.

Pirro felt that Tarlov was deviating from the topic and attempting to mix in numerous Democratic talking points rather than answering her questions while they discussed gender identity on Wednesday’s episode of “The Five.” That eventually provoked a confrontation on neopronouns that some leftists love to use to pigeonhole themselves as if it raises their identity above everyone else.

The back and forth took place during a discussion of Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy, who while campaigning in Iowa over the weekend got into it with an activist over trans rights. Ramaswamy claimed that people who support LGBTQ rights have imposed a “tyranny of the minority” over everyone else during that argument.

“I don’t have a negative view of same-sex couples, but I do have a negative view of a tyranny of the minority,” Ramaswamy asserted. “So I think that in the name of protecting against the tyranny of the majority, and there are times in this country’s history where we have had a tyranny of the majority. We have now in the name of protecting against tyranny of the majority created a new tyranny of the minority.”

“And I think that that’s wrong. I don’t think that somebody who’s religious should be forced to officiate a wedding that they disagree with. I don’t think somebody who is a woman who’s worked really hard for her achievements should be forced to compete against a biological man in a swim competition. I don’t think that somebody who’s a woman that respects her bodily autonomy and dignity should be forced to change clothes in a locker room with a man. That’s not freedom. That’s oppression,” Ramaswamy contended.

“And so I believe that we live in a country where free adults should be free to dress how they want, behave how they want and that’s fine, but you don’t oppress, you don’t become oppressive by foisting that on others, and that especially includes kids because kids aren’t the same as adults. And so I think adults are free to make whatever choices they want, but do not foist that ideology onto children before children are in a position as adults to make decisions for themselves,” the conservative stated.

“And so I think a lot of the frustration in the country, and if I’m being really honest that I also share, comes from that new culture of oppression where saying those things can actually get somebody punished. And in my case, it’s part of why it’s my responsibility to say to them, and I respect that you have a different opinion. And that’s okay. Part of what makes our country great is that you and I can be civil and have this conversation and that we live in a country that still gives us — each of us the right to speak to a presidential candidate and back and still say that we pledge allegiance to the same nation. So I think that’s the beauty of our country. And that’s my honest opinion,” Ramaswamy concluded.

Those comments by the candidate evidently did not set well with Tarlov who asserted that conservatives are fixated on gender identity issues at the expense of others. She tried to make the point that very few minors had gender transition surgeries. That argument fell exceedingly flat.

“When you look at the actual numbers of kids that are, for instance, they have gender dysphoria and they’re getting top surgery,” Tarlov stated, “how many kids do you think had top surgery last year? Under 300.”

“That’s an atrocity,” co-host Greg Gutfeld bluntly replied. “But continue.”

“But over 5,800 kids were victims of gun violence, for instance,” she continued. “I don’t hear Republicans talking about that.”

“What a false comparison,” Gutfeld said blasting the inserted Democrat talking point.

“It absolutely isn’t,” she clapped back. “It’s a priority on the right to talk about trans issues, a priority on the left to talk about gun violence. Which affects more people? Abortion is another instance.”

At that point, Gutfeld wanted to know why she even brought that point up.

“What’s this have to do with this topic?!” he asked her.

Tarlov proceeded to bring up Ramaswamy and his comments on the “tyranny of the minority.”

“But that had to do with LGBTQ – not with all of your favorite issues,” Pirro astutely commented.

“He’s running to be the president of the United States of America,” Tarlov responded.

“But that’s not what we’re talking about,” Pirro insisted. “I asked you specifically about the pronouns!”

Tarlov continued to attack Ramaswamy which did not fly well and showed how deeply he is feared on the Left.

“And I said why he was wrong to act as if the GOP is the party of the majority opinion,” Tarlov snapped back. “They are not. They’re taking minority positions and running with them.”

“Pro-life isn’t a minority issue,” Gutfeld informed her.

It is, actually,” Tarlov ridiculously claimed.

Tarlov and Gutfeld continued to argue about abortion and in the end, it went nowhere except to make it appear that Tarlov must support infanticide far more than life.
