One of the people on Fox News who it would be fair to say probably doesn’t hold back too much is Jesse Watters.
He let loose with his opinion about the impeachment hearings so far and what he thought about the testimony of former Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch. Yovanovitch seemed to have no real reason to be there because she didn’t seem to have any knowledge about the alleged phone call or the issues in question.
The only reason she seemed to have been called by Democrats was to suggest that President Donald Trump was a mean boss and had wrongly removed her from her position as ambassador. But a president can remove an ambassador for any reason or no reason. So it pretty much just sounds like sour grapes from her, with the Democrats using her.
Watters let loose during a discussion on “The Five” with Juan Williams.
Williams mentioned that President Donald Trump had spoken of Yovanovitch in a call with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. He said that she felt smeared when Trump said negative things about her to Zelensky.
This is the most 🔥thing ever said on Fox News:
Amb. Yovanovitch said she was sad about getting fired by Trump:
Under Obama, ambassadors were coming back in body bags.
Now everyone is upset because one got fired.

Watters said, “Oh, poor baby. When Obama got into office, he fired all the ambassadors and replaced them at will. He can do whatever he wants, all presidents can. Under Obama, ambassadors were coming back in body bags. Now everyone’s upset because one got fired? So what? People get fired all the time, it doesn’t make a difference. Witness tampering? Really?”
Watters was referencing Ambassador Chris Stevens who was killed in Benghazi after the Obama administration failed to provide proper security before and during the attack, and then lied about it afterward.
Watters also pointed to the questionable contacts between Schiff and the whistleblower that Schiff was not honest about with the public and which the whistleblower did not reveal to the ICIG despite being required to on the form he signed and swore to. “Schiff colluded with the whistleblower, that’s witness tampering,” Watters contended.
He mocked the Democrats’ claims. “Freezing aid for a blink of an eye? That’s a bribe? Tweeting is now an impeachable offense? That’s witness tampering?”
