Fox News anchor Shepard Smith has a problem with dry lips.
During an Election Day broadcast alongside Chris Wallace, Smith picked up his ChapStick from the floor on live television.
“What are you doing?” Wallace asked him.
“I dropped my ChapStick. I gotta have the ChapStick,” Smith responded.
Wallace burst out laughing.
“Should I leave it on the floor for someone else to pick up?”Smith asked.
“Well, I don’t know ― or you could have waited til the break,” Wallace offered.
“I need it. It’s ChapStick,” Smith insisted.
“You have a ChapStick fetish, don’t you?” Wallace said.
Pfizer, the mega-corporation that makes ChapStick, apparently saw an opportunity in Smith’s devotion to the lip balm. The company sent him a box full of ChapStick that Smith showed off to Wallace during his afternoon news hour on Friday.
“Guess what came in the mail today?” Smith asked Wallace, as he opened the package from Pfizer.
“You must be happy with that ChapStick fetish. You’ve gotta be like a pig in slop,” Wallace exclaimed.
