Fox News host Jesse Watters may have made a sexual joke about first daughter Ivanka Trump during a broadcast of "The Five" on April 25 (video below).
The program showed a clip of Trump being booed and hissed earlier in the day at a women’s panel in Berlin when she praised her father for supporting families.
In response to the booing, "The Five" co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle asked Watters, who was Bill O’Reilly’s producer and sidekick on "The O'Reilly Factor," for his opinion.
Watters, whose boss was recently let go amid numerous sexual harassment allegations, lectured the "left" and Europeans on respecting women:

It's funny, the left says they really respect women, and when given an opportunity to respect a woman like that, they boo and hiss. And I always thought the Europeans were supposed to be so sophisticated and well-mannered, and now they are treating this like it's a soccer match. I don't understand what's going on.
I think Ivanka is supposed to be the moderating voice for her father, so I think people in Europe should support that. I don't know why also saying that "my father respects families" is controversial. He's probably hired a ton of fathers and mothers and children. So I don't really get what's going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone.
Watters made a hand gesture towards his mouth during his "microphone" statement, which many people thought was a reference to oral sex.
Watters offered a defense on April 26 on Twitter: "On air I was referring to Ivanka's voice and how it resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ. This was in no way a joke about anything else."

But many Twitter users were not buying it, notes RawStory.com:
You are so full of s*** it's coming out your ears, you disgusting creep.
[Jesse Watters] wow. Do you have an intern on staff who helps ensure you stay that full of s*** or do you manage it yourself?
[Jesse Watters] Bulls***! you referenced how she was "holding" the mic, not how she was speaking… very respectful.
[Jesse Watters] Well, that clears things up. Can you point to an example of where you said "I like how he is using that mic" abt male politicians?
[Jesse Watters] Please…even my 12 YO knew what you were trying to say!!!
[J]esse watters always has this twinkle in his eye like he just drowned his brother's guinea pig and can't wait for him to find the body.
[Jesse Watters] Have you ever felt the need to comment on the sound of a man's voice?
[Jesse Watters] You are following the President's example in the way you speak about women & in the lies you tell afterwards.
[Jesse Watters] Whatever you say, Pig Boy.
