Jeanine Pirro, the host of Fox News’ “Justice with Judge Jeanine”, has been spotted wearing a cast on her right arm since November 2020. The outspoken judge and TV personality has not revealed the exact cause of her injury, sparking curiosity and speculation among her fans and critics. In this article, we will explore the possible reasons behind Pirro’s arm injury, as well as her career and personal life, and the recent updates and reactions on her condition.
The Incident with Judge Jeanine’s Arm
Pirro first appeared on her show with a cast on her right arm on November 7, 2020, the day after the presidential election was called for Joe Biden. She did not mention anything about her injury on air, nor did she explain it on her social media accounts. However, she did thank her viewers for their “kind words and well wishes” on Twitter.
According to some sources, Pirro had a surgery on her hand in late October or early November, but the details of the procedure and the reason for it are unknown. Some have speculated that she might have injured herself while carrying books at her home, as she claimed in a previous interview. Others have suggested that she might have suffered a fall or a car accident, or that she might have a chronic condition that required medical attention.
Whatever the cause of her injury, Pirro has not let it affect her performance on her show, where she continues to deliver her fiery opinions and commentary on the political and legal issues of the day. She has also been seen wearing different types of casts and braces, ranging from a simple sling to a more elaborate splint.
Jeanine Pirro’s Career and Personal Life
Jeanine Pirro is a former judge and prosecutor who has made a name for herself in the legal and media fields. She was the first female judge elected to the Westchester County Court in New York in 1990, and the first female district attorney of the same county in 1993. She served as the DA for three terms, until 2005, and gained visibility for her cases involving domestic abuse, crimes against the elderly, and wrongful convictions.
Pirro also ventured into politics, running for various offices as a Republican. In 2006, she briefly sought the nomination for the US Senate to challenge Hillary Clinton, but dropped out to run for the New York Attorney General instead. She lost the race to Democrat Andrew Cuomo. In 2010, she ran for the New York State Governor, but withdrew before the primary.
Pirro transitioned to a career in television in 2008, when she started hosting her own show, “Judge Jeanine Pirro”, on The CW network. The show, which featured Pirro presiding over real-life small claims cases, won an Emmy award in 2011. In 2011, she moved to Fox News, where she launched her current show, “Justice with Judge Jeanine”. The show features Pirro interviewing guests, analyzing legal stories, and giving her conservative views on the news of the week.
Pirro is also an author, having written six books, including “Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy” (2018), which was a bestseller. She is also a philanthropist, supporting various causes, such as animal rights, veterans, and children.
Pirro was married to Albert Pirro, a prominent real estate developer and attorney, from 1975 to 2013. The couple had two children, a daughter, Christi, and a son, Alexander, both of whom are lawyers. Pirro and her ex-husband had a tumultuous relationship, marked by his conviction for tax evasion in 2000, his affair and illegitimate child, and their divorce.

Updates and Reactions on the Arm Injury
Pirro’s arm injury has attracted a lot of attention and comments from her fans and foes alike. Many of her supporters have expressed their concern and sympathy for her, wishing her a speedy recovery and praising her for her courage and strength. Some of her detractors, however, have mocked and ridiculed her, questioning her credibility and integrity, and making jokes and memes about her cast.
Pirro has also faced some challenges and controversies related to her arm injury. In November 2020, she was suspended by Fox News for two weeks, reportedly for making false and baseless claims of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election. Pirro denied that her suspension was related to her injury, and said that she was “not going to get fired” by the network.
In January 2021, Pirro received some good news, when her ex-husband, Albert Pirro, was pardoned by President Donald Trump in his final hours in office. Albert Pirro had served 11 months in prison for tax evasion in 2001, and had been seeking a pardon for years. Pirro thanked Trump for the pardon, calling him “a man who is loyal to his friends”.
Pirro has not indicated when she will be able to remove her cast and resume her normal activities. She has, however, shown her resilience and determination to continue her work and her advocacy, despite her injury and the challenges she faces. She has also thanked her fans and followers for their support and loyalty, and has promised to keep them informed and entertained with her show.
