Fox News Host Slams Liberal for Smearing Colleague Over Migrant Caravan
In Tuesday’s episode of Fox News’s “The Five” television program, host Jesse Watters and his liberal colleague Juan Williams got into an extremely heated argument about the migrant caravan winding its way through Central America. After Williams accused Watters, Trump, and other conservatives of “fear-mongering” on the basis of the approaching caravan, the conservative veteran of The O’Reilly Factor took great exception to the remark.
“Sara Carter, one of your colleagues here at Fox News, went down there,” said Watters. “Actually, you’re not there, she’s down there and she’s a colleague. She spoke to Guatemalan intelligence and interviewed people in the caravan and has confirmed that there is MS-13 affiliated gang members among the caravan.”
Williams scoffed at this, laughing and shaking his head at the assertion. That was when Watters appeared to have had enough, telling Williams that he was being disrespectful.
“If you are going to sit there and call your colleague a liar while you are sitting on your tush in a nice air-conditioned studio in Manhattan, I really think that’s unbecoming,” he said.
“I think that’s a very cheap rhetorical trick,” Williams replied, getting hot under the collar himself.
Watters was not deterred, though.
“Second of all, you have not said what are you going to do about the caravan, Juan?” he said. “You have no plan to do anything about it. Do you have anything to add of substance to what to do with this 7,000 strong migration coming up north? What are you going to do?”
“I think it’s very clear, given that Republicans control the White House, why don’t they fix the immigration system that is so badly broken in our country?” Williams asked nonsensically.
“Fix the immigration system? It’s because of Democratic politics,” Watters snapped.
Fellow co-host Greg Gutfeld ultimately had to jump in.
“According to Juan’s logic,” he said, “Mexico is also racist because they’re trying to limit the immigration as well. They’re sending troops to their border, so clearly the Mexicans are racist too, Juan. Everybody is racist if they don’t agree with you.”
Williams dismissed this as a “ridiculous argument,” which is the kind of thing you say when you’re all out of sensible things to say.
It’s still hard for us to imagine how any liberal can get up on national television and pretend that an effort to ENFORCE OUR BORDER LAWS is racist in any way, shape, or form, but there are plenty of them that do it. And, we suppose, there are plenty of voters who just eat it right up.
