Jeanine Pirro responds to critics of appearance on Fox News show
Pro-Trump anchor appeared late and apparently disheveled on Saturday night, leading to social media speculationPresenting from home has become a new normal for TV hosts during the coronavirus outbreak, but for one of Donald Trump's favorite personalities, things did not go so well on Saturday night.Jeanine Pirro missed the entire first segment of her show Justice with Judge Jeanine on Fox News and appeared disheveled when she did finally appear, her hair noticeably and uncharacteristically non-coiffured.Fox News issued a statement on Sunday blaming "technical difficulties" for the spectacle and seeking to excuse the mishaps by pointing out that it, like others in such challenging times, was operating "with a reduced staff working remotely to ensure the health and safety of our employees".Pirro defended herself in a lunchtime tweet that claimed her hair was out of place because of an audio device in her ear with "no staff around to notice"."I was in a truck that was not prepared to broadcast [because] we had no connection, no visual and no teleprompter," she wrote.The explanations cut little ice with social media users, however, several of whom suggested alternative reasons for what they saw.Aaron Rupar, a Vox journalist, questioned the wisdom of allowing Pirro to appear at all."OMG. What is Fox doing putting someone on the air in [that] condition?," he wrote.Pirro, 68, told another Twitter user: "Keep hating. U wear it well."The former US district attorney has often won praise from Trump for her sup
