“This week Hillary Clinton said Europe should no longer offer refuge and support to migrants. What? The woman either had a lobotomy, or she has been out in the woods too long,” Pirro said in her opening statement of "Justice with Judge Jeanine."

"She has not seen the light. It is pure political calculus," the host added later. "More than a flip-flop, it is the classic Clinton two-step. She wants to boost her base. The woman is desperate. There is even talk of a 2020 run. Hillary, the only place that you need to run is back into the woods."

Clinton has previously said that after the 2016 election she has consoled herself by taking long walks in the woods near her home in Chappaqua, N.Y.

“You may have heard that things didn’t go exactly the way I planned, but you know what? I’m doing okay," Clinton wrote in her 2017 book "What Happened?" that chronicles various people and factors that led to her stunning loss in 2016. "I’ve gotten to spend time with my family, especially my amazing grandchildren — I was going to give my entire commencement speech about them, but was talked out of it. Long walks in the woods, organizing my closets. I won’t lie, Chardonnay helped a little, too.”
