Fox News host Jesse Watters going on ‘vacation’ after backlash over crude Ivanka joke

Published

Just one day after taking heat for making a crude joke about Ivanka Trump, Fox News host Jesse Watters has announced that he will be taking a vacation.

During his show on Wednesday night, Watters said that he was “going to be taking a vacation with my family,” although he said that he would be back by Monday.

Watters’ sudden vacation announcement is notable because it’s similar to the vacation taken by former Fox host Bill O’Reilly shortly before he was fired from the network over multiple sexual harassment allegations.

The trouble for Watters started on Tuesday, when he said that he liked the way that Ivanka Trump was “speaking into that microphone” during a panel discussion on The Five, as he smiled and made a gesture with his hands that seemed to imply he was talking about oral sex.

After a facing a backlash for his joke, Watters took to social media to say that he wasn’t actually making a joke about oral sex.

“On air I was referring to Ivanka’s voice and how it resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ,” Watters wrote on Twitter. “This was in no way a joke about anything else.”

Team Trump ‘running for cover’ after attempt to crack down on protests results in ‘humiliation’: conservative columnist

Published

on

Writing in the Washington Post this Wednesday, columnist Jennifer Rubin writes that the "tear-gassing of peaceful protesters, the debasement of St. John’s Episcopal Church, the wholly inappropriate participation of the defense secretary and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in the goose step across Lafayette Square" were actually President Trump's way of compensating for reports that he retreated to an underground bunker when protesters got close to the White House.

Rubin points to Trump's claim that he went to the bunker for an "inspection." But according to Defense Secretary Mark Esper, he had no idea where Trump and the rest of his entourage were going.
