Fox News’ Jesse Watters found himself at the center of yet another social media call for justice for comments he made about Ivanka Trump.
On his show “The Five” Tuesday, Watters mentioned that he liked “how she was speaking into that microphone” when she spoke at the Women’s Conference in Germany.

Many on social media assumed Watters was making a penis joke, but Watters refuted that claim on Wednesday in a tweet explaining that he was “referring to Ivanka’s voice and how it resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ.”
Fox News has been in a tailspin since it fired top rated host Bill O’Reilly for sexual harassment allegations.
That was followed by similar allegations made against Sean Hannity this week which were immediately walked back.
But in the frenzy to accuse every male at Fox of being a sexual deviant social media was quick to pounce on Watters.
Among those responding was CNN’s Jake Tapper.
When a company sends the clear signal that women are basically sub-human, vile behavior thrives even after top offenders are fired.

Can’t believe we have to go over this again. Ahem.
YOU CAN HATE IVANKA WITHOUT MAKING BLOW JOB JOKES. Do not make me feel empathy for her.

Calls out the left for disrespecting women.
Immediately follows it up with a joke about how a woman holds a microphone. https://t.co/kjqbqTMgUJ

“The left says we should respect women,” Jesse Watters, right before he made a lewd remark about a woman. https://t.co/xXHNf4xH9k

Jesse Watters looks like the kind of guy I would absolutely never leave my drinks unattended around.
