Democrat’s Privileged Golden-boy Joe Kennedy Explains Mysterious White ‘Schmutz’ on Face

Rep. Joe Kennedy III insisted on Wednesday that it was a copious quantity of ChapStick — not drool — on his lips when he delivered his response to the State of the Union.

“Oddly enough, I decided to go a little bit light on the ChapStick this morning,” Kennedy joked when asked on ABC’s “Good Morning America” if he brought the lip balm with him.

“More on the coffee, light on the ChapStick, which was probably a wise choice,” the 37-year-old quipped.

He additionally informed CNN that Tuesday evening’s ChapStick application was “a little too much, apparently.”

Social media users didn’t bite their lips as Kennedy delivered the Democratic retort to President Trump’s speech

“Ask not what your country can drool for you, ask what you can drool for your country!” @PetroNL tweeted.

“I know liberals get really upset when Trump is doing great but this was the first time I actually saw one frothing at the mouth,” wrote @Katyellig.

Other State of the Union responders have drawn comparable undesirable attention.

In 2013, GOP Sen. Marco Rubio’s response to President Obama’s speech was mocked for his awkward off-screen reach for water. 


  1. Let’s be bigger than the others — give the guy a break. Too much chapstick, he was nervous. Cmon, already. We don’t like it when this kind of thing is done to one of ours, so let’s not do it to others.

  2. I noticed his chapstick immediately when I was watching his speech. I was wondering if the Internet would notice lol
    You all need to get your head out of the gutter. That was obviously something clear on his lips. Looked like way too much chapstick or lip gloss.
    You want people to treat Trump with respect, treat the other side’s people with respect too.
