Look, I don’t actually know how much truth there is to the long-standing claims that Fox host “Judge” Jeanine Pirro has a serious drinking problem. For all I know, the notion really could be nothing more than the result of the good ole’ rumor mill and nothing more. I also can’t speak to the state of the woman’s private mental health. I am (blissfully, really) unaware of whether she struggles with certain conditions or issues that may make “normal” life difficult for her in some way or another.
What I do know is that, whatever the reasoning, explanation, or excuse may be, there is something terribly not right with this woman.
Pirro peddled one of her new Fox segments on Twitter recently, where she attempted to openly bash President Biden over his recent speech. But Jeanine’s attempted attack didn’t actually go over all that well for her — and instead just left her brutally mocked by the American people.
In case you missed Biden’s Philadelphia speech, here’s what the president said that apparently ruffled Jeanine’s feathers so severely that she had to make a whole Fox segment out of it:
MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards — backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love.”

This particular sentence upset Jeanine Pirro. It upset her badly. So much so that, in her attempt to launch a nasty, Fox-worthy attack against the president’s remarks, Pirro couldn’t seem to get her own remarks to actually come out of her mouth in a straight line.
“But also they’re saying…, …you know, ummm, You’re, we’re…the, ‘the Republicans want to go backwards. ‘We don’t want to go backwards,'” Pirro stuttered and stumbled and choked on her own words so badly, we could barely make sense of what she was even trying to say before she finally declared, “I want to go backwards… I don’t know what the problem is with the past.”
The Fox host was, of course, referring to going back to a time where Donald Trump was president, ending her unhinged Fox rant by calling the US president “the divider in chief.”

There’s no denying that Pirro was struggling hard with her word salad. And, as I mentioned above, while we can’t say with certainty whether her apparent mental crack there was a result of a drinking problem or possibly some mental health issues, we are going to guess that Pirro’s apparent out-of-sorts-ness could possibly be in relation to the news that broke earlier this week, revealing that one of the Fox Network’s own producers had desperately tried to push the host out, demanding that she not be allowed back on air due to her incessant lies.
Just the day before Jeanine’s apparent mental episode, we reported on a copy of an “anguished” email that was obtained and verified by NPR, hailing from November 2020 just after Trump lost the election, revealing that an unidentified Fox News Network producer frantically begged the Right-wing network to pull Jeanine Pirro from the air, due to her incessant false claims of fraud in the 2020 presidential election and, more specifically, her claims that Dominion Voting Systems were rife with cheating that allowed “flipped” votes and allowed Joe Biden to secure his win over Donald Trump and effectively unseat him from the White House.
NPR reported on the news, “The producer warned: Fox cannot let host Jeanine Pirro back on the air. She is pulling conspiracy theories from dark corners of the Web to justify then-President Donald Trump’s lies that the election had been stolen from him.”
Suffice it to say, this left social media with a lot of thoughts:
“The producer warned: Fox cannot let host Jeanine Pirro back on the air,” writes NPR. “She is pulling conspiracy theories from dark corners of the Web to justify then-President Donald Trump’s lies that the election had been stolen from him.” Hope Dominion takes you for every dime

Well I think dominion will own you so we all have opinions don’t we? At least I’m not a conspiracy theorist traitor.

You’re named SPECIFICALLY in an internal smoking gun memo as one of the defamers in a $1.6 billion dollar lawsuit.
Here come the bus, Jeanine.https://t.co/Pge9FM2f7y

You husband got a last minute pardon for tax fraud. Is this the “quid pro quo” you arranged? You are beholden to Trump and therefore have to spread his lies.https://t.co/4N0Kat2yU4

Maybe take a couple of days off, huh, Jeanine? Digest the news a little. Because you’re really not looking so good right now.
