We now know what was around Rep. Joe Kennedy's mouth Tuesday night has he offered his rebuttal to President Trump's State of The Union Address.

According to the young Democratic leader, it was CHAPSTICK! Yes, prior to his speech on national television JK3 applied a bit too much chapstick and his mouth was shiny.

So much that many on social media thought he was drolling. But he says that is not so. Apparently, the chapstick made him a hot topic for discussion on social media as his appearance quickly went viral Tuesday night.

The young leader should really consider this a lesson learned and NEVER apply too much chapstick prior to being on television. Even if it comes from our local celebrity "Poo Poo Broussard."

Can we now call this "Chapstick Gate?"
