Fox News host cracks an oral sex gag targeting Ivanka Trump
Turns out Fox News has another controversy to deal with. Jesse Watters, the brand new co-host for Fox’s The Five , decided to make an inappropriate joke about Ivanka Trump in the middle of a news segment.
After playing a clip from the W20 summit in Germanyin which the first daughter was booed by a mob, Watters ended his commentary on her speech by saying he” really liked how she was speaking into that microphone .” Watters dedicated a quick smiling to the camera before his fellow co-host, Kimberly Guilfoyle, moved such discussions away from the remark.
Watter’s pause and expression, along with the closeness with which Ivanka held the microphone to her mouth, made it clear to most of the internet that the Fox host was making an oral sex gag at Ivanka’s expense.
@yashar How is he a thing? Is he 12? Does he acknowledge every time person says “6 9”, too?

In an official statement obtained by the Washington Post , Wattersclaims the gag wasn’t intended to suggest anything lewd about the first daughter.
” 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 ,” Watters told.” This was in no way a joke about anything else .”
Watters is pretty familiar with dispute. During his segment” Watters’ World” for the O’Reilly Factor , Watters received major backlash for a segment taking place in New York City’s Chinatown that was deemed offensive for racist stereotyping against Chinese and Asian-Americans. In the excerpt, Watters asks about Chinese herbs for “performance” and gags that” everything is constructed in China” to one woman.
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio blamed the segment and Watters’ role, calling on Fox News to” keep this guy off Tv .”
The vile, racist behaviour of Foxs Jesse Watters in Chinatown has no place in our city. @FoxNews keep this guy off TV.
