LARRY KRASNER (DISTRICT ATTORNEY OF PHILADELPHIA): There is absolutely no correlation between being progressive or traditional and the rate of crime. These states in the United States that have a rate of homicide that is 40% higher are MAGA states. They are Trump states.

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): That's the safe harbor, Judge. When you're under fire, just go to Trump and see if you can get cover that way.

JEANINE PIRRO (CO-HOST): First of all, the governor doesn't control the police in individual cities and in individual states so get off the MAGA states. That's number one. Number two, this DA is an idiot. He says there is no correlation between crime and a traditional versus a progressive DA. I'm going to tell you what the correlation is. The progressive DA wants to let the criminal out. The traditional DA wants to lock him up and throw away the key and make sure that he pays for the crime that he commits. Alright, that's real simple so Krasner's out of his mind.
