Fox News personality Tucker Carlson put on his Babylon Bee hat to take a jab at Nancy Pelosi’s appearance in a recent interview, suggesting she looks like Michael Jackson.
The House Speaker appeared on “Face the Nation” (irony?) the day before sporting inexplicably arched eyebrows that conveyed a sense of surprise throughout the segment.
“So yesterday was Sunday, and you may have found yourself on the couch idly flipping around the TV dial,” Carlson began his segment. “And if you flipped far enough, you could’ve had the shock of your life. Michael Jackson was on Face the Nation.”
Carlson then rolled a clip of Pelosi’s appearance on CBS.
“See?” he said once the video ended. “Michael Jackson. That was him. No ‘Billie Jean.’ Apparently, he’s given up singing and is telling lies about politics. Same man.”
“If you’ve ever seen Michael Jackson, you cannot forget the face,” the Fox host added, “though admittedly, he’s had a lot of work done since we saw him last.”

Pelosi’s Appearance Mocked

Can I be candid here?
Quite frankly, Tucker Carlson’s assertion that Nancy Pelosi bears any resemblance to Michael Jackson is appalling … to the late Michael Jackson.
Now, I know some of you on the left are going to rant about how physical appearances should be off-limits. Please, spare me your faux indignation.
Physical appearance was certainly fair game when Donald Trump was in office. The very phrase ‘Orange Man Bad’ is referencing the former President’s personal appearance.
Not to mention, Pelosi is the same person who once described Trump as “morbidly obese.”
Pro-tip – If you don’t want to be compared to Michael Jackson, don’t draw your eyebrows on in an arch that would make McDonald’s envious.
Interview Raised Eyebrows
In addition to the mockery of Pelosi as Michael Jackson, Tucker’s segment included the chyron – “Shocking TV Appearance Raises Eyebrows.”
See what he did there?
“Now let’s be clear – This wasn’t a video of Michael Jackson performing his hit songs of the 1990s. This appeared to be a living version of the international pop star that news reports claimed died of a drug O.D. more than a dozen years ago,” Carlson said.
“And yet despite those claims there he was, fully, undeniably Michael Jackson talking on television,” he continued joking. “How can that be?”
I’m going to have to rerank my favorite right wing figures now that Tuck is bloodthirsty! 🥰

Kidding aside, perhaps more shocking were Pelosi’s comments during the clip Tucker played.
The House Speaker accused Republicans of conducting a “legislative continuation” of the Capitol riot since January 6th by fighting voting reform legislation pushed by Democrats to federalize elections.
“What the Republicans are doing across the country is really a legislative continuation of what they did on January 6, which is to undermine our democracy, to undermine the integrity of our elections, to undermine the voting power, which is the essence of a democracy,” she claimed.

Maybe that’s why the eyebrows are soaring to new heights. She has to convey shock when discussing January 6th to create the illusion it was a more shocking event than it actually was in reality.
