Young Turks hosts Ana Kasparian and John Iadarola ripped Fox’s Jesse Watters on Wednesday for his O’Reilly Factor report casting aspersions at New York City’s homeless population, calling him out for his on-camera antipathy toward the black people he interviewed for the segment.
“Jesse Watters is just a deplorable human being,” Kasparian said. “I have no respect for him whatsoever.”
The segment, which aired on Monday, showed Watters interviewing homeless people around Penn Station.
Iadarola noted that, while each of the homeless people featured on camera were black, the only white people Watters featured were commuters “inconvenienced” by their presence.
“I’ve always had a little bit of sympathy for him, because he has to spend his days with Bill O’Reilly,” Iadarola said. “But I’ve lost even that little bit of sympathy.”
Kasparian, a Raw Story contributor, argued that Watters’ on-camera behavior illustrated the difference between conservatives and liberals.
“Liberals genuinely believe that this country is about helping one another out and doing it for the greater good,” she said. “Conservatives are like ‘F*ck everyone, we have no interest in helping anyone. I’m only looking out for myself and my family.’ I have no interest in being part of that group.”
At the end of the Factor segment, O’Reilly and Watters attempted to blame their findings on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s administration, with Watters saying, “plenty of people are being attacked” without citing any proof.
“All this was was a Bill de Blasio smear campaign at the expense of homeless people living at a train station,” Kasparian said. “That’s all that segment was about. Fox News is garbage. Garbage.”

WATCH: Trump looks on as Turkey’s Erdo?an denies the Armenian Genocide ever occurred
President Donald Trump looked on as Turkish President Recep Erdo?an denied the Armenian Genocide during a joint press conference at the White House.
Trump allowed Erdo?an's visit despite Turkey's ethnic cleansing of America's Kurdish allies in northern Syria.
Onlookers were shocked that Erdo?an did this in front of the president and multiple Republican senators.
From the White House, Erdogan is ranting about the Armenian Genocide, saying it didn’t happen and that he wants to set up a “history commission.”
WATCH: Trump whines to Turkish president he only takes questions from ‘friendly reporters’
In a press conference Wednesday with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an, President Donald Trump openly reminded that he only takes questions from people on his side.
"Would you like to pick somebody?" Trump asked Erdo?an after taking a question from the far-right OANN. "A friendly person from Turkey, please. Friendly. Only friendly reporters. There aren’t too many of them around."
Trump has increasingly refused to take questions from reporters who ask him actual questions that he both knows the answer to and will make him look good.
The White House hasn't hosted a "daily press briefing" for 247 days and not at all under the new press secretary, Stephanie Grisham. She has, however, had time to appear on Fox News multiple times to speak for the White House.
George Conway blows apart Republicans’ ‘illogical and incoherent’ defense’ of Trump
Republican Washington lawyer George Conway found the GOP's attempts to defend President Donald Trump to be "illogical and incoherent."
The spouse of Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to the president, explained that the witnesses were clearly non-partisan professionals only willing to talk about the facts.
"And the facts are quite damning. And the defenses that were put up by the Republicans were fundamentally illogical and incoherent," Conway told MSNBC. "I mean, one defense was, 'Hey, they actually got the money. The Ukrainians got the money and Zelensky didn’t make a statement. But the fact of the matter is, it was the ask that was illegal."
