Tucker Carlson, the Fox News host who recently took over the O’Reilly Factor’s prime time slot, fell victim to appendicitis last week and was abruptly replaced on his Thursday and Friday show.
At the urging of his doctors, Carlson went to the hospital with a fever and was diagnosed and treated for appendicitis.
Ed Henry filled in for him in a pinch on Thursday, airing an interview Tucker conducted with Frank Warmbier, father of recently released North Korean detainee, Otto Warmbier.
Dana Perino filled in on Friday.
Via the Daily Mail:
Fox News host Tucker Carlson missed his Thursday night show after he went to the hospital with appendicitis.
Carlson had a fever, and his doctor urged him to go to the hospital, where he was diagnosed with appendicitis, Mediaite reported.
The condition, which can lead to death if not treated in time, usually requires the inflamed appendix to be surgically removed.
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.’
Most social media users wished the conservative news host well …

Get well soon @TuckerCarlson! He has appendicitis and will be missing some time roasting leftists and shining a spotlight on important news!

Of course, there were the always reliable vile liberals who mocked Carlson’s serious medical emergency.
One individual wrote, “If I were an internal organ I’d want to get the F out of Tucker too.”

Then there was this charming individual …
Was hoping he was getting vocal chords removed. Oh well. Hope he gets better soon and takes a long time resting before returning.

It’s hard to blame them for being so bitter though. After all, Tucker has been consistently eviscerating liberals who dare appear on his show on a nightly basis.
Here he is:
- Destroying a Black Lives Matter racist.
- Wrecking a lib snowflake for crying about how our soldiers are given extra consideration.
- And curb-stomping another who compared ICE agents to Nazis.
Is it any wonder he’s been setting ratings records and the left has been reduced to cheering on his illness?
