Fox News’ Tucker Carlson opened a segment of his top-rated program Monday night with a comment about Michael Jackson appearing on television Sunday despite having died more than 12 years ago and viewers had to be thinking where on earth was he going with the observation and perhaps even wonder whether the Tucker Carlson Tonight host had accidentally consumed some mushroom’s during the break.
Turns out, he was comparing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and her ever-migrating eyebrows to the late pop singer.
“So yesterday was Sunday, and you may have found yourself on the couch idly flipping around the TV dial,” Carlson opened. “And if you flipped far enough, you could’ve had the shock of your life. Michael Jackson was on Face the Nation.”
All the while, the chyron read, “Shocking TV Appearance Raises Eyebrows.”
“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,” he continued. “And yet despite those claims there he was, fully, undeniably Michael Jackson talking on television. How can that be? Honestly, we have no idea. We’re not theologians here. This is merely a news program. We can only show you what we saw. Here it is.”
Keep in mind, up until this point, viewers did not have a clue where all of this was leading. A poker-faced Carlson then ran a clip of Pelosi doing what she always does, demonizing Republicans with false assertions. But what stood out here is that her eyebrows were well north of where you might expect them to be.
“There’s nothing more important for us to do than protect our Constitution and our democracy,” the soon to be 82-year-old speaker said. “What the Republicans are doing across the country is really a legislative continuation of what they did on Jan. 6, which is to undermine our democracy.”
“See? Michael Jackson,” Carlson deadpanned, as the camera came back to him. “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 – though admittedly, he’s had a lot of work done since we saw him last.”
Donald Trump Jr was certainly impressed with the comedic value of the segment, taking to Twitter to share the clip, adding: “Tucker goes full savage. You have to watch I won’t ruin it for you.”
As might be expected, the left was immediately triggered, as seen from MSNBC analyst Jonathan Alter, who took on both Carlson and Don Jr.

Tucker Carlson referring to crazy “high-eye-browed” Nancy as Michael Jackson is sheer brilliance
