Fox News personality Jesse Watters told homophobic jokes during Thursday’s episode of “The Five,” saying that CNN anchor Brian Stelter and network boss Jeff Zucker should have a couple of visits with recently jailed lawyer Michael Avenatti. .
It all started because “The Five” co-host Greg Goefeld asked if the people on CNN – who quickly rushed their wagons on the Avenatti train along with the rest of the left after Avenatti – began representing Stormy Daniels in its lawsuits. former President Trump – would try to visit Avenati Jail.
Avenati was sentenced to two and a half years in prison for attempting to blackmail Niki from $ 25 million. Before “The Five” took this abrupt turn, they played a clip of Stelter’s “Reliable Sources” show from September 2018, where he told Avenatti, “Looking ahead to 2020, one reason I take you seriously as claimant is due to your presence in the cable news. ”
Needless to say, this whole situation delighted the Fox hosts and they laughed out loud at how bad this comment was.
“It took 30 months,” Goufeld said. “This is a month for every hair on his head. I am curious. Will Brian Stelter or Jeff Zucker visit him in prison? ”
Then Jay Water spoke, “Couple visit!” This scared (and also amused) Dana Dana Perino co-host who shouted, “Jesse Watters!”
Watters then made a coded gay joke (and a possible “Seinfeld” reference) and added, “not that there’s anything wrong with that.”
That happened. And honestly, it’s a rough picture, but the idea of support is not a bad thing. After all the CNN anchors, Don Lemon, were having a party with Avenatti and the network was too quick to praise him for representing Daniels in his legitimate attempt to cancel an NDA he signed for Trump, no questions were asked.
As “The Five” co-host Giraldo Rivera put it, “The media looks very silly after praising this reptile.”
Watters is known for saying outrageous or utterly unpleasant things. earlier this week argued that Native Americans had no right to their ancestral areas that settlers “won on the battlefield.” He has also praised the far-right QAnon conspiracy movement, although he later gave back those comments.
