Fox “News” promotes racist, sexist jughead Jesse Watters for new host position
It takes a lot to get promoted on Fox News – you have to spread disinformation, make racist and sexist comments, interview people with insulting questions, violently threaten immunologists with comments like “Boom! He is dead ! He is dead ! It’s finish ! and, at all times, act like a complete jerk.
After a year of searching to fill Fox’s 7-hour slot, Jesse Watters has ticked all the boxes and is set to host his own show, “Jesse Watters Primetime”.
Watters’ promotion comes less than a month after he sparked significant controversy for using violent language at a conservative conference while encouraging attendees to conduct shadowy interviews with Dr Anthony Fauci.
“Now you’re going to get the killing blow. The killing blow? With an ambush? Deadly. Because he didn’t see it coming,” Watters told the students.
Fauci responded to the comments, calling them “crazy” and saying Watters “should be fired immediately” by Fox. But, at the time, Fauci predicted that Watters would become “irresponsible” at Fox. Fauci quickly proved correct as the network released a statement of support for Watters soon after.
This was just one of the many controversies that Watters has embarked on over the years. Over the past few years, Watters has survived a scandal related to racial stereotypes of different cultural groups in the man-in-the-streets segments, as well as a comment on Ivanka Trump largely cut off as a sexual innuendo.
But throughout, Watters continued to be an audience success for Fox.
