Rep. Kennedy Mocked For Delivering SOTU Rebuttal After Applying Vat of Chapstick to Face
Rep. Joe Kennedy III addresses DACA recipients in both Spanish and English: “And to all the Dreamers out there watching tonight, let me be absolutely clear … You are part of our story, we will fight for you and we will not walk away”

Rep. Joe Kennedy III delivered the Democratic rebuttal to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union, and like some of his famous predecessors, delivered an impressive speech while somehow also managing to botch the visuals.
Not only did Kennedy give his rebuttal as a wrecked car sat behind him — a curious choice, given his great-uncle’s infamous “Chappaquiddick incident” — but it also appeared that Joe applied a vat of vaseline to his lips before taking the stage.
The extent of his moisturizing was hard to ignore, even as he delivered an impassioned rebuttal of Trump’s SOTU and stood up for American values. And Twitter reacted like the collective of soulless bastards it is — with copious amounts of mockery.
Why is Joe Kennedy wearing so much chapstick

Rep Joe Kennedy III’s lips already have a Twitter account. https://t.co/K9CWIcTwsX

Too much Vaseline on the corners of the lips of the guy named for a bootlegger, and too much Hemingway sentence structure emanating from those lips.

“Yo give your lips a wipe, your lip balm looks shiny and weird”- not the person hanging out with Joe Kennedy before he went on.

Joe Kennedy needs to ease up on the lip gloss and the pre-speech Red Bull.

You’ll never believe what happened if you thought, well at least that redheaded Kennedy won’t drool during his thing like a big weird idiot.

Kennedy even acknowledged the incident, responding to this tweet:

BONUS: Twitter is horribly depraved, so it also pointed out that time Ted Kennedy killed a woman after driving his car off a bridge and into a channel:
The Joe Kennedy/car jokes are too easy. I refuse to sink down to that level.

The last time a Kennedy was this damp, a car was sitting in the bottom of chappaquiddick

Bravo to the Dem advance staffer who decided to put a Kennedy in front of a car wreck on national TV.
