Jesse Watters abruptly announced at the end of last nights The Five show that he will be on vacation for the rest of the week and it’s raising eyebrows. This was Jesse's first week on his new 9 pm show. Watters is the young protege of Bill O'Reilly who was fired last week after numerous women claimed he made sexual comments to them. As that controversy heated up O'Reilly announced he was going on vacation.
It’s all because of an on air comment he made about Ivanka Trump. The host said "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," he said. "So I don't really get what's going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone."
Needless to say, many people jumped on that while Watters defended himself. "On air I was referring to Ivanka's voice and how it resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ," Watters tweeted. "This was in no way a joke about anything else."
