WATCH: Jeanine Pirro Drinks a Bleach Cocktail on SNL Skit
Television looks a fair bit different today than it did before the coronavirus pandemic. Saturday Night Live, however, has attempted to retain a sense of normalcy. The NBC skit show aired another episode on Saturday night.
Like the players from SNL, Fox’s Jeanine Pirro has also been broadcasting from home. There has been some controversy for the Judge, as Fox News had to put out a statement rebutting claims that she had appeared drunk while on air. Saturday Night Live lampooned this incident, along with Pirro’s unwavering support for Donald Trump on last night’s show.
Cecily Strong portrayed Pirro in the skit. Speaking to host Colin Jost, she said, “Good evening, Colin, I hope you’ll forgive me. I had to do my own makeup while looking into a spoon.”
Jost asked Pirro how she was holding up and she replied, “I’m perfectly fine. Although I’ll admit that it’s been tough for all of us. For what seems like forever, I’ve been sitting at home, drinking and complaining to whoever would listen. Then this whole coronavirus thing happened!”
Strong as Pirro then praised the President, “Oh, mama, I just want to hide inside a 12-piece bucket of chicken and let him eat me alive.”
The actress ended the sketch by telling the anchor what she was having to drink. “Oh this? It’s called a piña cloroxa. It’s pineapple juice, coconut milk, and a half cup of bleach.”
