After tonight’s show, it could be said that Jeanine Pirro likes bars but doesn’t like bills — and we know how she feels. Pirro scathingly denounced Bill Barr as a member of the Deep State. Ouch. Bill may be the first bar Pirro is running away from. https://t.co/xRSfyHPbst — Rob A Stocking (@RobGeorge) December 13, […]
Jeannine Pirro’s Saturday night show has gotten loads of attention, due to the fact that she was broadcasting from home and gave every indication of being inebriated. If you haven’t seen the video in question, here’s the link to my earlier piece on this subject. Pirro immediately got savaged on social media, with everybody and their uncle calling attention to the similarities between comedienne Cecily Strong’s SNL impersonation of Pirro (see link above) and the real thing on her March 28 show. The broadcast started about fifteen minutes late and when Pirro did appear on camera, she was uncharacteristically disheveled. Then when she spoke, she sounded drunk. Fox News hastily issued a statement to the effect of this being her first broadcast from home and experiencing technical difficulties. Here’s a tweet which shows Pirro putting down her glass, purportedly. Watch the beginning of the video very closely and look to the right of Pirro on the screen. This is blown up later at the end of the clip. Beyond parody. You can actually see Jeanine Pirro putting down her drink at the top of her show tonight…which was delayed due to “technical difficulties”. pic.twitter.com/5hOC11BFtM — ElElegante101 (@skolanach) March 29, 2020 At one point a heavily inebriated Judge Jeanine is slowly nodding off while her guest talks. A quick-thinking producer gets her off screen by throwing up a graphic of "mental health tips." The first tip is "AVOID NAPS"!!!! pic.twitter.com/h16JkzldrH — John Teti (@johnteti) March 29, 2020 Has anyone noticed that a number of Trump's most passionate fans ("Judge" Jeanine, Giuliani, Kudlow) often appear to be drunk as a skunk when they defend him on TV? https://t.co/mlKghFoKSB — Jeet Heer (@HeerJeet) March 29, 2020 Keep hating. U wear it well. — Jeanine Pirro (@JudgeJeanine) March 29, 2020 In reading Pirro’s tweets from time to time, I have noticed that she’s like Donald Trump. Anything he doesn’t like is labelled “fake news.” Anything she doesn’t like is labelled “hate.” Life is not that black and white. The above and this tweet below, constitute Pirro’s defense. No that’s an ifb grabbing my hair and no staff around to notice. I was in a truck where that was not prepared to broadcast bec we had no connection , no visual and no teleprompter. — Jeanine Pirro (@JudgeJeanine) March 29, 2020 An “ifb” is an audio device. However, the messy hairdo was not nearly so condemning as her speech. The Wrap: Pirro’s speaking was notably loose throughout the broadcast — which a network spokesperson attributed to the lack of a teleprompter in the host’s first broadcast from home. “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,” Pirro said at one point. An individual close to the network “absolutely” denied that Pirro was intoxicated and said the former prosecutor does not even drink alcohol. Now, I don’t know about other media outlets, but this one, PolitiZoom, was asked by Fox News via email earlier today to modify the headline saying Pirro was drunk, based upon this source “close to the network” saying that she doesn’t drink at all. Here is what I […]
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. Listen closely pic.twitter.com/4aD8AVczjD — Acyn Torabi (@Acyn) March 29, 2020 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 — Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) March 29, 2020 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 — Russell Drew (@RussOnPolitics) March 29, 2020 #JudgeJeanineIn honor of drunk Judge Jeanine Pirro this #SNL skit feels hilariously apropos pic.twitter.com/SXp1HxACu0 — Paul Shipley (@paulcshipley) March 29, 2020 Nothing like a little cardboardeaux before going on the air, eh what? Cheers!
