Audiences zeroed in on Tucker Carlson's lip, and fans are desperately trying to figure out why it looks so different. So, what happened to Tucker's lip? Keep reading to find out.
Tucker Carlson appeared to have a cold sore on his lip during a recent broadcast.
Although he was talking about President Biden's vaccine rollout, many viewers were more fixated on what was going on with Tucker Carlson's lip. It appeared to many that the Fox star had a "cold sore" or "split lip" protruding from the center of his lower lip.
Many concerned fans took to social media and posted about it, wondering what exactly could be going on with Tucker's lip. Although the host didn't address the issue specifically, curious viewers were quick to speculate about what it could be.
This isn't the first time keen viewers have noticed a mark on Tucker's lip, which could indicate that he struggles from repeated cold sores. During the week of April 22, Tucker was caught on-air with another sore.
"This is driving me nutzzz! Did @TuckerCarlson split his lip? I have to rewind to the beginning because I can’t stop looking at his lip," another concerned viewer wrote on Twitter after the episode aired. Clearly, many fans are in agreement that the conservative news host has some trouble when it comes to combatting the condition.
Tucker has used vaccine skepticism to attack House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy.
Although he first went after veteran pollster Frank Luntz for vouching for COVID-19 vaccines, Tucker used that as a segue to attack House GOP leader Kevin McCarthy for what he deemed to be unethical practices. Kevin actually rents an apartment from Frank, and Tucker insinuated that if they are truly friends and Kevin receives a discounted rent, he may be technically accepting a gift, which is against House rules.
Frank has become an increasingly polarizing figure thanks to his stance on vaccinations, especially among Republicans. It's currently unclear where this situation will go or whether Tucker will push them harder about this alleged violation. Nonetheless, neither Frank nor Kevin have responded to Tucker's claims since they were made.
