Fox News Host Jeanine Pirro Appears Late & Disheveled To Her Own Show, Blames ‘Technical Difficulties’
Fox News host Jeanine Pirro appeared on her show, Justice with Judge Jeanine, on Saturday apparently visibly disheveled and an entire segment tardy.
While most media companies have transitioned to a work-from-home model in the wake of the growing coronavirus pandemic, it seems Pirro had some issues adjusting over the weekend.

Fox News blamed “technical difficulties” in a statement Sunday morning for the problems and noted that it was operating “with a reduced staff working remotely to ensure the health and safety of our employees.”
Pirro deflected rumors of being drunk on-air, saying an earpiece messed up her styling and there was “no staff around to notice.”
She added, “I was in a truck where that was not prepared to broadcast [because] we had no connection, no visual and no teleprompter.”

Pirro has long been a favorite of President Donald Trump, due to her right-wing commentary and pro-Trump rhetoric. When she was suspended in 2019 by Fox for criticizing Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Minnesota) for wearing a hijab, Trump incorrectly faulted “radical left Democrats working closely with their beloved partner, the fake news media” in using “every trick in the book to silence a majority of our country.”
