Fox News co-host Jesse Watters called out “liberals” for claiming they respect women but booing and hissing when Ivanka Trump spoke in Germany.
Watters appeared on “The Five” Tuesday night to point fingers at the left, but co-host Bob Beckel was quick to claim that German Chancellor Angela Merkel is actually much further right and generally surrounds herself with more right-leaning people. He encouraged the panel not to assume it was “the left.”
Still, Watters had one thing he liked about the Trump speech this week at the W20, it was the way she was “speaking into that microphone.” Seconds after he chastised those who didn’t respect women, he made a joke about Trump holding the microphone so close to her mouth.
Twitter lit up with comments, some even alleging that this is further evidence of the cultural of sexual harassment at Fox News.
The Jesse Waters on-air joke about Ivanka doesn’t really dispel those employee claims that Fox News has a leering frat boy atmosphere, huh?

Jesse Waters complains the Left doesn’t respect Ivanka Trump and then in front of 2.5 million people intimates Ivanka was blowing her mike.

The apple does not fall from the tree, wherein the apple in question is Bill O’Reilly’s disappointing adult son Jesse Watters.

Trump declares impeachment ‘dead’ — and demands apology — in late night Twitter outburst
President Donald Trump lashed out on his favorite social media platform late Thursday evening.
Eight minutes before midnight eastern time, Trump unloaded.
Trump wrote, "Democrats must apologize to USA: Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko said that 'United States Ambassador Gordon Sondland did NOT link financial military assistance to a request for Ukraine to open up an investigation into former V.P. Joe Biden & his son, Hunter Biden. Ambassador Sondland did not tell us, and certainly did not tell me, about a connection between the assistance and the investigation.'”
Trump did not say why he was taking the word of a foreign official over multiple sworn testimonies from members of his own administration.
Pelosi is ‘marrying up the facts and the law’: Ex-prosecutor says ‘bribery’ is a critical indictment of Trump
Speaker Nancy Pelosi was masterful in using the word "bribery" to describe President Donald Trump's actions with Ukraine that are at the heart of the impeachment inquiry, according to a former federal prosecutor.
MSNBC anchor Brian Williams interviewed former Assistant U.S. Attorney Berit Berger on Thursday evening's "The Last Word."
Please expand for us on why it is significant and why is it important to label this bribery," Williams said.
"So I think Nancy Pelosi was very specific in calling this bribery for two reasons," Berger replied.
"The first is that -- unlike quid pro quo -- ribery is something that most people understand, especially people who have children," she said, with a chuckle. "We all sort of have a general understanding of that."
Giuliani henchmen showered Republican with cash — and Trump almost made him ambassador to Ukraine: report
Yet another bombshell report has shed new light on President Donald Trump's suspicious Ukraine policies.
"At the same time that Rudy Giuliani and his now-indicted pals were pushing for President Donald Trump to remove Amb. Marie Yovanovitch from her post in Ukraine, Trump administration officials were eyeing potential contenders to take over her job. One of the people in the mix, according to three sources familiar with the discussions, was Rep. Pete Sessions, a former Congressman who called for Yovanovitch’s firing," The Daily Beast reported Thursday night. "He is also a longtime ally of the former New York Mayor, and is believed to have taken millions of dollars from Giuliani’s indicted cronies."
