WATCH: Twitter Thinks Jeanine Pirro Was Drunk During Last Night’s Fox News Show
Judge Jeanine Pirro has long been one of Donald Trump’s most ardent supporters on the Fox News network. And the good feeling is mutual between the two of them. After the anchor was removed from the air after making controversial claims about Islam, the President demanded that she be brought back.
During Saturday’s broadcast, she was again ready to defend the President over this handling of the COVID-19 crisis. The show, however, was delayed 15 minutes, and when it returned, Pirro slurred her words and seemed inebriated.
Following the “technical difficulties,” Pirro began, “Just the other … day the president talked, or was hoping, about the possibility of reopening everything on Easter Sunday, uh, in a way where we could kind of come out of this quarantine, as loose as it may be, that we’re involved in.”
Video’s of Pirro’s performance were shared by Twitter user Acyn Torabi. He wrote, “t’s like every time they come back from commercial, she appears more intoxicated.”
Vox’s Aaron Rupar also weighed in, asking, “OMG. What is Fox News doing putting someone on the air in the condition?”

Robert George, from the New York Daily News, joked that this was more like a Saturday Night Live skit. He tweeted, “Cecily Strong nails Pirro perfectly! SO happy SNL posted this viral clip tonight.”
