The decade's most triggering comedy
Carlson noted of the high-ranking Democrat official’s curious new look, mocking her as the reincarnation of deceased pop star Michael Jackson, who was known for apparently having numerous plastic surgeries.
Some folks watching TV this weekend “could have had the shock” of their life if they scrolled upon Pelosi’s interview, Carlson started the segment, aptly captioned, “Shocking TV Appearance Raises Eyebrows.”

“Michael Jackson was on ‘Face the Nation,'” Carlson said. “Let’s be clear, this wasn’t 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 claim died of a drug [overdose] more than a dozen years ago. And despite those claims, there he was: fully, undeniably Michael Jackson talking on television.”
“How can that be?” Carlson mocked, adding, “we can only show you what he saw.” The segment then cut away to a clip of Pelosi talking about January 6, 2021, and ripping into Republicans.
“There’s nothing more important for us to do than to protect our Constitution and our democracy,” the House Speaker said on “Face the Nation.” “What the Republicans are doing across the country, is really a legislative continuation of what they did on January 6th, which is to undermine our democracy.”
“See, Michael Jackson,” Carlson said of Pelosi. “That was him.”
There was no performance of the song “Billie Jean,” the Fox News host said, “apparently he’s given up singing, now he’s telling lies about politics.”
Carlson wasn’t done yet, closing the segment: “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.”

Pelosi recently made news when her January 6 “grief session” included Broadway tunes, The Daily Wire’s Tim Meads reported:
For some reason, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) thought it was necessary to have Broadway star Lin-Manuel Miranda and several of his castmates from the hit show “Hamilton” perform a song via Zoom. As Pelosi put it, artists could just “connect in ways” better than anybody else could and she was thrilled to have them for the somber occasion. The virtual sing-a-long came right before a conversation on how to “preserve the narrative of January 6th.” Manuel’s performance did not really touch upon January 6, but with it came a bit of revisionist history.
“To begin the conversation, we’re privileged to have a contribution from one of the great creative talents of our time — Lin-Manuel Miranda,” Pelosi stated. “May his beautiful words be an inspiration to us. Among the words he said, and the music, ‘We’ll make it right for you. If we lay a strong enough foundation, we’ll pass it on to you and we’ll give the world to you.’ Lin-Manuel, and his father, and the Hamilton singers who we’ll hear from said they were all honored to participate today.”
