Fox News producer Jesse Watters on Wednesday welcomed a potential Donald Trump presidency, saying that the billionaire "is not going to let illegal aliens come to the country and murder our women."
On Wednesday's edition of Outnumbered, Fox News host Andrea Tantaros argued that Trump's controversial comments which referred to Mexicans as rapists were the best possible way to launch his campaign.
"The Republicans have been crying and calling out for some energy in their party, someone who doesn't speak in platitudes," she explained. "They finally have it. I've seen on campaigns all the time... you see candidates reacting to a news cycle. I have never seen a news cycle react to a candidate."
"I mean, Donald Trump made his announcement, talked about immigration, and now you see the news cycle follow," Tantaros continued. "He couldn't have planned it better."
"He is hitting on something, something that people in this country are saying. You know what? The guy has a point."
Watters agreed: "Right, Trump has tapped into the collective backbone of this country, and he's the only one willing to say that the emperor has no clothes. And people like that."
"President Trump is not going to bow to the Saudi King," Watters insisted. "President Trump is not going to waste half a billion dollars on solar panels. Donald Trump is not going to let illegal aliens come to the country and murder our women. So people respond to that."
Co-host Kennedy Montgomery, however, suggested that Trump had tapped into something much darker in the Republican Party.
"It's the collective femur," Montgomery said. "It's like the opening scene in 2001 where, unfortunately, it a very, very vocal group people who are going to beat each other over the heads with that femur."
