Need proof? Look no further than Jesse Watters.
Over the last few months (or years if you’ve been paying attention) Fox News has developed an anti-female reputation. Indeed, between Roger Ailes, Bill O’Reilly and long, documented, history of misogyny and sexism on-air it will be hard for Fox News to shed its “we only see women as sex objects” image.
And, sadly, it doesn’t look like they’re trying to.
During a segment of The Five Tuesday night, host Jesse Watters ( i.e. Fox News’ resident frat boy who is not Tucker Carlson) appeared to make an oral sex joke about Ivanka Trump — because it’s Fox and that’s what they do.
The thing is Watters made the joke while criticizing people who disrespect Ivanka, failing to understand the irony. Here’s what happened.
Watters and the rest of The Five gang had a discussion about Ivanka’s recent trip to Berlin, where she was booed on stage after claiming her father is a “champion” for women and families. Watters felt this was an egregious act.
“The left says they really respect women and given an opportunity to respect a woman like that they boo and hiss. And I always thought that Europeans were supposed to be so sophisticated and well-mannered,” Watters said.
Then at the end of his little rant he added, “So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but uh I really liked how she was speaking into the microphone.”
He then gave a smirk and made what appeared to be a blow-job gesture.

Watters denied it was a crude joke. Instead, he claims he was merely impressed with her voice. “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,” he said. Sure buddy.
Regardless the whole situation pretty much sums up who Watters is: a giant idiot.
Remember this is the same guy who went to Chinatown and made a super racist man-on-the-street video that only went viral because everyone agreed on how terrible it was. (Except Fox of course).
He’s also the guy who mocked single female voters who supported Obama by calling them “Beyoncé voters” claiming “they depend on government because they’re not depending on their husbands.” Lolz right?! He also just loves mocking women in general.
So of course Fox gave him a promotion. Why the hell not?
After Watters’ man-crush Bill O’Reilly was fired, the network moved The Five into a new slot and gave Watters a seat on the host’s panel. Which is why he was on the show Tuesday night making blow-job gestures.
Replacing one sexist idiot with another sexist idiot is just one of the many reasons why Fox News is the worst.
