I’ve heard of blogging while drunk, and that’s never a good idea. But broadcasting while drunk — at least on television — is a really terrible notion. The internet lit up on Saturday night when Jeannine Pirro was apparently hammered during her show, her first from home.

Judge Jeanine missed the first segment of her show tonight because of “technical difficulties” and then hosted the rest of it in this condition pic.twitter.com/KxGGBXUkly

Frankly, I like her better this way. Now we know why she’s so angry and vindictive, she’s jonesin’ for her next drink — and frankly, we don’t blame her. If we worked at Fox News, we’d probably be in the same condition ourselves.
Fox News of course has something different to say.
“Jeanine Pirro was broadcasting from her home for the first time when she encountered several technical difficulties which impacted the quality of her show, including the loss of a teleprompter. As we have previously said, we are operating with a reduced staff working remotely to ensure the health and safety of our employees in these unprecedented times,” the statement from a network spokesperson said.
Folks, Jeanine Pirro was drunk AF tonight…either that or she swallowed some pills chased by a shot of vodka.
I won't pretend that I am concerned about her—I think she's a genuinely terrible person. But if I were a Fox News producer, I'd check her into rehab. She's not well. pic.twitter.com/MPQFDaQv3c

Nothing like a little cardboardeaux before going on the air, eh what? Cheers!
