Well, the Fox News Hosts Have Totally Fucking Lost It

Like most political journalists waiting for the polls to close, Smith and co-anchor Chris Wallace were running out of things to talk about—they were yammering on about which candidate they would rather be at 3 p.m. in Nevada, when Smith dropped his Chapstick on the floor.

Here’s what happened. Smith dropped his Chapstick and decided to pick it up, live on air. Wallace giggled like a schoolgirl and made fun of him for it. Smith got defensive and said something about taking antibiotics for an ear infection.

Also, I never leave the house without Chapstick. I legit have 15 tubes scattered around my house at any given time. I’m sorry you don’t know the joy of having soft, protected-from-UV-rays lips, Chris Wallace.
