Jeanine Pirro Mocked on Twitter For Admitting False Nancy Pelosi Report: 'Must've Taken You at Least 2 Boxes of Wine'

Social media users roasted Jeanine Pirro on Sunday after the Fox News host admitted she falsely reported that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) spent the weekend in Puerto Rico during the partial government shutdown.

While interviewing President Donald Trump on Saturday's Justice with Judge Jeanine, Pirro suggested that Pelosi was shying away from resolving the government shutdown by taking a trip to Puerto Rico — a statement she later admitted was inaccurate.

"During my exclusive interview with Pres Trump I said Speaker Pelosi was in Puerto Rico with a bunch of her Democrat colleagues," the former judge tweeted on Sunday. "I based that on numerous reports that turned out to be wrong. The Speaker's office says she has been in DC all weekend and I take them at their word."

However, the conservative host and Trump ally failed to properly apologize for the false reporting, prompting a barrage of ridicule and criticisms from Twitter users.

"Wow. Quite the non-apology," one user wrote in the comments section of Pirro's post, while another added: "Must've taken you at least 2 boxes of wine to tweet this."

A user added: "Wouldn't it make sense to verify something like that ahead of time instead of making that statement in front of a large audience?"

Trump and Pirro discussed several hot political topics during their talk last night, including a recent New York Times article that revealed the FBI launched a probe into whether the president was working for the Kremlin following his firing of the agency's former director James Comey in 2017.

Arguably the most controversial moment was when Pirro asked Trump outright whether he had worked for Russia. "I think it's the most insulting thing I've ever been asked. I think it's the most insulting article I've ever had written. And if you read the article, you'd see that they found absolutely nothing," the president responded. "But the headline of that article, it's called 'The failing New York Times' for a reason, they've gotten me wrong for three years. They've actually gotten me wrong for many years before that."

Trump then went on to defend his stance on Russia, claiming he's been tougher on Moscow than most of the presidents that have come before him. "I can tell you this, if you ask the folks in Russia, I've been tougher on Russia than anybody else, any other — probably any other president period, but certainly the last three or four presidents, modern day presidents," the president said. "Nobody's been as tough as I have from any standpoint including the fact that we've done oil like we've never done it, we're setting records in exporting oil and many other things."

Following the interview, prominent social media users called Trump out for failing to properly respond to Pirro's simple question asking him whether he has ever worked for Russia. "Jeanine Pirro of Fox News asked @realDonaldTrump last night a simple question of 'are you now or have you ever worked for Russia,'" Rep. Ted Lieu (D-CA) tweeted. "@POTUS did not answer that question the way an innocent person would have."
