BREAKING: Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been rushed to the hospital and will not be appearing on air for the time being. Fans were shocked when he did not appear on his show this Thursday. And now, the reason for his sudden hospitalization has been revealed.
Tucker is suffering from a bad case of appendicitis, a condition in which the appendix becomes inflamed and filled with pus, causing pain. The condition, which can lead to death if not treated in time, usually requires the inflamed appendix to be surgically removed.
Ed Henry took over the 8pm show on Thursday, which went ahead and aired Carlson’s interview with Frank Warmbier, father of the released North Korean detainee Otto Warmbier.
A Fox News spokesperson confirmed the medical emergency and said: ‘Tucker is now being treated for appendicitis. He is in good spirits and expects to back on the air soon.’ Dana Perino will take over for Tucker on Friday night.
On Friday morning, CNN anchor Jake Tapper tweeted: ‘Get well soon to @TuckerCarlson — hoping for a speedy recovery!’
But Tappers’ followers did not share in his sympathy, with one man writing: ‘If I were an internal organ I’d want to get the F out of Tucker too.’ User @suzg2017 wrote, ‘All that regurgitating venom finally needed a way out’ while Myra Parker tweeted: ‘Hope he has better insurance than the @GOP is offering us.’ Steve Minard chimed in, asking: ‘So he’s finally having his head surgically removed from his a**?’
Typical liberals: No class.
We are praying that Tucker has a safe and speedy recovery. We will keep you up-to-date on Tucker’s condition as more information becomes available. Keep checking back.
