Like just about everything else he’s tried his hand at, President Barack Obama’s recent comments on racism have only exacerbated the problem.
Or so said Judge Jeanine Pirro.
Pirro made the comments during her “Opening Statement” on Saturday’s “Justice with Judge Jeanine” on the Fox News Channel.
The former prosecutor blasted the president for statements that engender “racial hatred, resentment and divisiveness” instead of bringing the country together.
Perhaps most bitingly, she also pointed out the inclusion of the Rev. Al Sharpton among Obama’s inner circle of advisers on race and racial politics, describing him as “the greatest charlatan of them all, a man who makes a living inciting racial hatred, a tax cheat, and a liar.”
For anyone that might be tempted to think that Pirro’s own comments were driven by racism, she had an answer prepared.
Pirro described the first conviction of a white police officer for wrongfully shooting a black suspect — a conviction Pirro herself obtained by presenting a jury with the facts of the case, not a lot of race-baiting rhetoric, she said.
The former judge argued that what America needs today is a man in the Oval Office who is truly color blind, not a man who jumps in when black suspects like Trayvon Martin and Michael Brown are killed while committing crimes but all but ignores the brutal beheading of James Rosen by the largest group of terrorists in Iraq and Syria.
“Why not act like the president of all of us, Mr. President?” she concluded.

If the president wants to involve himself in local police issues, that’s his business. It seems like a colossal waste of time for a man with bigger issues on his plate, but the truth is that he doesn’t seem to know what to do about any of those, either.
The fact that he only weighs in when the victims are black, however, tells you all you need to know about this president’s motivations.
