Fox News' Jesse Watters thought it was the perfect time at Fox News to make a sexual joke at a woman's expense. And he earned a three-day vacation for his on-air blowjob joke about Ivanka Trump after saying, "I really like how she was speaking into that microphone."
Despite Watters' efforts to play it off, it seems like the controversy has caught up to him. Today he announced abruptly that he would be taking a vacation with his family until Monday… three days into his new primetime slot.
The controversy comes on the heels of Fox News' firing of Roger Ailes and, more recently, Bill O'Reilly over sexual assault and harassment allegations, illustrating what appears to be a disturbing pattern disrespect for women.
This isn't the first time Watters has been in hot water. Last year, Watters received the ire of the internet over his now-infamous Chinatown segment, in which he ambushed random people in Chinatown and barraged them with racist questions.
