Fox's Watters on "Vacation" After Alleged Lewd Ivanka Comment

He says he'll be back Monday.

It's amusing, the left says they really respect women, and when given an opportunity to respect a woman like that, they boo and hiss. I should have realized that my remarks could be perceived as making an inappropriate "joke" about Ivanka Trump, the President's daughter.

"Jesse Watters" on air sexual harassment of Ivanka Trump is a vivid reminder of Fox News' smirking culture of hypersexualizing and demeaning women", said Bloom.

Watters himself has faced controversy in the past for his comments about New York City's homeless population, and recently became one of the 45 people that Donald Trump follows on Twitter. Some took to social media to convey that Jesse would never put Ivanka in that light, as seen on the Facebook post below.

Ivanka took her first official trip overseas on Tuesday, an appearance that was controversial in its own right.

Unfortunately for the world's stupidest O'Reilly protege, Mr. Watters picked Ivanka Trump to test-drive a salacious observation about her handling of a microphone during a women's conference in Germany.

Either Watters is fibbing about why he's taking an extended weekend, or he made a decision to take a vacation during his first week as a primetime Fox News host. It was a clear and public sign that Fox News still didn't give a shit about sexual harassment.

"They hated you", O'Reilly told Watters after the segment. He added, "I don't know why also saying that "my father respects families" is controversial and he's probably hired a ton of fathers and mothers and children".

Before he was sacked recently because of years of accumulated sexual harassment allegations, Bill O'Reilly was given the equivalent of Michael Corleone's "kiss of death" by the Murdoch family and abruptly sent "on vacation".

Watters' recurring segment on "The O'Reilly Factor" involved sending the host out to various events and locations across the country for man-on-the-street style interviews that mock various cultural subgroups in their own communities.

Take a survey: Should Fox News fire Jesse Watters? .
