Critics Pan Jesse Watters’ Controversial Comment On Ivanka Trump, Wonder If Vacation Means He’s Fired Like O’Reilly


The View Panel unanimously skewers Jesse Watters of The Five for an apparent innuendo about the way Ivanka Trump holds a microphone. He denies it was an innuendo.

Media pundits are speculating whether Jesse Watters’ sudden vacation can be compared to Bill O’Reilly’s vacation and subsequent firing from Fox News.

Wednesday evening, on the show’s second night in primetime, Watters said that he liked the way First Daughter Ivanka Trump spoke into a microphone during an event in Germany.

“It’s funny. The left says they really respect women and then when given an opportunity to respect a woman like that they boo and hiss… so I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone,” he said.

Watters pleaded innocent, saying: “During the break, we were commenting on Ivanka’s voice and how it was low and steady and resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ. This was in no way a joke about anything else.”

“So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.” The remark, which some saw as crude, lit up social media.

Watters was involved in some controversy the past year, getting into a fight with a Huffington Post editor, who was attempting to film him during a party. He was also condemned by New York City’s Mayor Bill de Blasio after a segment on Chinatown.

Jesse Watters also has his own show on Saturday night. His “Watters World” segment, which appeared on The O’Reilly Factor, and is similar to Jay Leno’s “Jaywalking” segment, has been scheduled to continue on his Saturday night program.

Trouble may be brewing for Fox News personality Jesse Watters after he made what some say was a lewd joke about Ivanka Trump on ‘The Five.’ Watters’ comment came during Tuesday’s show as he and the rest of the show’s hosts were discussing Ivanka Trump speaking at a panel about female entrepreneurship in Germany.
