On Second Night of Post-O'Reilly Lineup Fox News Star Makes Veiled Oral Sex Joke About Ivanka Trump
Fox News rising star Jesse Watters made a thinly-veiled on-air oral sex "joke" about the First Daughter, Ivanka Trump, on the second day of the embattled news network's new post O'Reilly prime time lineup.
Bill O'Reilly was fired after multiple women, at least seven, accused the 21-year Fox News veteran of sexual harassment. The allegations cost the network tens of millions in payments to the women (up to $13 million), a payout to O'Reilly ($25 million) and unknown millions in lost revenue as more than 60 advertisers fled "The O'Reilly Factor."
But Tuesday night Watters, who often appeared on O'Reilly's show, and has now been promoted as a co-host of the new primetime Fox New show, "The Five," ignored all the sexual harassment reports (the Fox News hotline reportedly has been very active) and made an oral sex joke involving the president's daughter.
After playing a clip of Ivanka Trump being hissed and booed by the audience at an international conference focusing on women's empowerment, the W20, part of the G20 economic forum, Watters first blamed liberals for expressing displeasure with Trump's remarks.
