Fox News’ Jesse Watters Coincidentally Announces Vacation Following Ivanka Trump Sex Joke Controversy!

jesse watters announces vacation

We’re sensing a pattern at Fox News.

As you may recall, back on April 11, Bill O’Reilly revealed he’d be going on a “pre-planned” vacation amid his sexual harassment scandal — only to be formally ousted by the network a week later. Well it appears as though the controversial TV host’s prot├â┬⌐g├â┬⌐ is following in his footsteps.

ICYMI, The Five‘s Jesse Watters made headlines on Tuesday after he seemingly made an oral sex joke about First Daughter Ivanka Trump. At the time, while discussing Miz Trump’s recent appearance at a women’s economic conference in Germany, the 38-year-old quipped:

“I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.”

So gross. However, Jesse has since tried to defuse the backlash he’s received by claiming he was simply comparing Donald Trump‘s daughter’s voice to that of a smooth jazz radio DJ. Yeah, sure.

Obviously, this lame AF excuse didn’t squash the controversy as, on Wednesday, the TV personality announced:

“I’m going to be taking a vacation with my family, so I’m not gonna be here tomorrow and Friday but I’ll be back on Monday so try not to miss me too much.”

Boy, bye.

Fox News has gotta be pissed at Watters as this “vacation” announcement comes only a handful of days into his tenure as a primetime host for the network. Specifically, The O’Reilly Factor alum is missing two days from his first week in primetime on top of missing his weekend show. Tsk, tsk!

Be sure to watch his awkward AF vacation announcement for yourself (below)!
