The internet went on overdrive Saturday night moments after clips if the opening of Jeanine Pirro’s regular show on Fox News were posted online, with users speculating that the former prosecutor may have been drinking, likely due to her demeanor and slightly disheveled look.
After her “Justice with Judge Jeanine” show was delayed due to “technical difficulties” for 15 minutes, the host appeared and apologized for the delay before she began to discuss Donald Trump’s plan to take the U.S. out of quarantine by Easter, telling viewers, “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.”
Commenters were quick to point that that she didn’t seem her normal self and that her hair was rumpled, which led to speculation that she might have had a drink or two before her appearance.

She looks high as a kite. Is she on drugs?

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

I can’t stand Judge Jeanine Pirro; however, if she’s drunk and has a serious drinking problem then I want her to get help. @JudgeJeanine
