Fox News host Jesse Watters is in trouble over comments made about first daughter Ivanka Trump.


Known for appearing on Bill O’Reilly‘s The O’Reilly Factor, Watters was commenting on Donald Trump and Ivanka’s recent trip to Berlin on another Fox News show. Audible boos were aimed at Ivanka during the Women 20 summit on economic empowerment that she attended. At first, Watters kept it political, saying, “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.”

The show then aired a clip of Ivanka speaking at the summit, and Watters commented on the way Ivanka held the microphone. “So I don’t really get what’s going on here, but I really liked the way she was speaking into that microphone.” His sexually explicit comment was ironic, given the statement he had just made about respecting “a woman like that.”

Watters announced that he would take a vacation shortly after the uproar began.

This is not the first time Fox has been in trouble because of its hosts. O’Reilly was recently fired for cases of sexual harassment being brought against him. In addition, a dozen black Fox News employees are suing the network for years of racial discrimination.
