Jesse Watters, Fox News host of The Five, recently tried to attack liberals for booing Ivanka Trump. Ivanka claimed her father was a champion of women, but the crowd showed their disgust of such a ridiculous statement, which I think is extremely fair. Watters said:
“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.”
In the next breath, Watters goes from making an attempt to defend women to degrading them. With a smirk he said:
“So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.”

The not so subtle connotation was that Watters imagined the microphone to be a penis. Wow. Watters has since taken a “vacation” after receiving lots of backlash. This is just embarrassing and certainly will live on as a Fox News classic debacle. It’s so shocking this network has a sexual harassment problem!
