Jesse Watters Is Perfect in His Response to Gov. Newsom Accusation – Watch
Fox News Host Jesse Watters talked some smack against California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) on a recent show. He left his show with the win.
Newsom accused Watters of “aiding and abetting” the man who attacked Paul Pelosi while talking with CBS News correspondent Major Garrett on Saturday. Newsom said that Watters was guilty of contributing to the “dehumanization” of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Newsom said this to Garrett, “I’ve seen the dehumanization of Nancy Pelosi. I don’t think anyone’s been dehumanized like she has consistently. Now I watched this one guy, Jesse Watters or something on Fox News. What he’s been saying about Paul Pelosi the last five, six months, mocking him consistently. Don’t tell me that’s not aiding and abetting all this. Of course it is. They’re sowing the seeds, creating a culture and a climate like this. I mean, look online. Look at the sewage that is online that they amplify on these networks and in social media to dehumanize people like Nancy Pelosi and other political leaders.”
Watters was ready for a response on his Fox News show, he began by saying that he needed to “set the record straight.” He explained why his criticisms of Paul Pelosi focused on his recent DUI arrest.
“Let’s set the record straight: Paul Pelosi got drunk and nearly killed someone with his car, and then the Napa County DA made it go away. We reported that Paul Pelosi got special treatment and mocked him for trying to bribe officers,” Watters explained.
“We had to wait forever to get to the bottom of what happened that night, and there [are] still questions we have,” he continued. “But Gavin Newsom thinks if you mock a Democrat, it puts them on a target list.”
Watters then turned the tables and said that Newsom was in fact guilty of “aiding and abetting” Pelosi’s attacker, who is allegedly living in California illegally.
“If anything, Gavin Newsom has done more to aid and abet this attack on Pelosi than anybody. David DePape is a homeless criminal and an illegal alien. DePape overstayed his visa for years — committed crimes. California is a sanctuary state, so he was never deported,” the Fox News host explained. Smack!
