Jeanine Pirro and Greg Gutfeld, co-hosts of The Five, slammed Democratic congresswoman Rep. Alexandria-Ocasio Cortez for saying more cops on the Subway won’t help keep crime down.
AOC said: “A lot of people think that crime is up, when we actually see that shootings are down, when we see that huge indicators on the most violent crime in New York City is down.
Subway crime is up, but let’s also note that subway crime is up after they committed so many more officers to the subway system. So that also tells us from a policy perspective, adding more cops to the subway isn’t solving this problem.”
Enter Judge Jeanine Pirro who said:
“She is so stupid, it is stunning. More cops cause more violence on the trains, on the subways?
“Did it ever occur to her there might even be more crime but for the fact that there were more police there?
“They don’t know what they’re talking about and Americans are suffering for that,” Pirro said of AOC and the Dems.
“That is either the product of a dishonest mind or a mentally disabled one.
“Do you think that the chalk outlines are drawn before the body’s placed in there, you frickin’ moron.”
