Fox News host Jesse Watters doesn’t care about the royal wedding between actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry. Nor does he care about the controversy surrounding Markle’s father. So, when Martha MacCallum asked him to comment on it, he had no desire to do so. But what he did do is say what he claimed he “didn’t” want to say.
“We look to you for etiquette, that’s why,” MacCallum explained her rational behind asking him.
“You’re right, I’m a little buttoned up,” Watters claimed. “I have a View concept, which I’ve said on The Five. I don’t ever want to bash the ladies of The View because one day I might have a book that I might need to sell on The View.”
Watters explained that this is the same methodology that he intends to follow surrounding the British royal family.
“I don’t want to attack the royals too viciously and say this is a disaster and say her family doesn’t have class and say I don’t care and say I’m bored by it, because one day I might meet the royal family and I don’t want to embarrass anybody,” he closed.
Neither The View nor the British royal family has commented on whether they intend to ever engage with the Fox News host.
Markle and Harry are scheduled to tie the knot on Saturday and the bride’s father will not be on hand to walk her down the aisle. The tradition of giving a woman away dates back to the days when women were considered property by their parents. The idea of giving them away typically also came with a dowry.
MacCallum argued that Markle should simply walk herself down the aisle, unless her mother wants to give her daughter away.
