As the apex of the current pandemic looms in the United States, more and more Americans have begun working from home in an effort to slow the virus.
Television hosts aren't an exception to this—including far-Right Fox News host Judge Jeanine Pirro, whose performance on air this past Saturday night seemed a bit...off.
Pirro wasn't present for the first 15 minutes of the show, with colleague Jackie Ibañez subbing in. When Pirro did jump on, she claimed technical difficulties were the reason for her absence.
The strangeness didn't end there.
A disheveled Pirro slurred her words and began nodding off during an interview, leading some to believe she'd gone on the air drunk.

Soon, "Jeanine Pirro" began trending on Twitter with people noting the erratic behavior on her show.
Fox News released a statement echoing claims that the strangeness was due to technical difficulties brought about by Pirro working from home for the first time.
Soon, Pirro began replying to tweets herself, accusing people of "hate" and claiming that her disheveled hair was due to audio equipment.

Some compared Pirro's Saturday night show to another popular Saturday night show: Cecily Strong's parody of her on SNL.

Regardless of her mental state, it was certainly an interesting night for the judge.
