Jesse Watters Smacks Down Gavin Newsom After Governor Blamed Him For Pelosi Attack

Star Fox News host Jesse Watters fired back at Gov. Gavin Newsom during his Monday show after the California Democrat accused the host of “aiding and abetting” the attack against Paul Pelosi.

In an interview with CBS News correspondent Major Garrett on Saturday, Newsom claimed Watters was guilty of contributing to the “dehumanization” of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“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,” Newsom railed.

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,” he said.

Wait — like the Bernie Sanders bro who tried to assassinate House GOP Whip Steve Scalise in 2017? Or Rep. Maxine Waters’ imploring supporters to “push back” on Trump Cabinet members wherever they are and tell them “they’re not wanted” anywhere? That kind of dehumanization?

Watters addressed the Dem governor direction on Monday to “set the record straight” and remind viewers that his recent criticisms of Paul Pelosi were directly related to his recent DUI arrest.

“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,” Watters began.

“We had to wait forever to get to the bottom of what happened that night, and there [are] still questions we have,” he continued. “But Gavin Newsom thinks if you mock a Democrat, it puts them on a target list.”

Newsom is actually guilty of “aiding and abetting” Pelosi’s attacker, who is allegedly living in California illegally, Watters noted further.

“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,” the Fox News host said.

“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 he is Jesus or the news guy who fairly covered Paul’s DUI case? I think we both know the answer,” he said.
