Fox News Channel host hit back hard at California’s far left governor, “Greasy” Gavin Newsom, after Newsom accused Watters of “aiding and abetting” the crazy person that attacked Nancy Pelosi’s husband, Paul Pelosi.
Newsom, for reference, attacked Watters by name during an interview, accusing him of dehumanizing Pelosi and arguing that that was “aiding and abbetting all this,” with “all this” there meaning the attack on Paul Pelosi. In Newsom’s words:
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.
Well, Watters hit back at Newsom and pushed back on the “aiding and abetting” claim by noting that he’s only ever criticized Paul Pelosi for his DUI arrest, saying:
“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.
“We had to wait forever to get to the bottom of what happened that night, and there [are] still questions we have. But Gavin Newsom thinks if you mock a Democrat, it puts them on a target list.”
In other words: criticizing someone for being a drunk driver and then exposing the special,, kids’ gloves treatment he got from the cops isn’t “aiding and abetting” a psycho. It’s just being a commentator and talking head. It’s what they do.
But Watters wasn’t done there. The best bit was yet to come. According to Watters, the only one who had “aided and abetted” Paul Pelosi’s attacker was Gavin Newsom, who let DePape and those like him overstay a visa and stay on the streets despite being a “homeless criminal.” As Watters put it:
“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.
“So let me ask you a question: Who is more at fault here? The governor who didn’t deport the deranged drug-addict felon who thinks is he Jesus or the news guy who fairly covered Paul’s DUI case? I think we both know the answer.”
Now that’s an effective clapback.
