Jesse Watters Slams Dan Rather for Praising Leaks: He ‘Was Fake News Before There Was Fake News’

The Five slammed Dan Rather for calling the ongoing leaks during the Trump presidency a “public service” during an interview on MSNBC.

Greg Gutfeld made a keen observation as to how everyone views leaks.

“Let me define what a leak is,” he said. “It’s something you love if it hurts someone you hate and it’s something you hate if it hurts someone you love. So he likes this and he says it’s for patriotic value, but he really likes it because it hinders a president he hates.”

Jesse Watters chimed in.

“So let me get this straight. North Korea is about to throw a nuke at LA, and people are leaking about what the weather is going to be like in a 100 years?” Watters asked. “That’s their priority right now.”

Watters claimed that leakers under Republicans are considered “righteous” by the left and that “you can riot and be a Democrat” as long it’s “for a good cause.”

Then he took aim at the longtime CBS Evening News anchor over the retracted 2004 story he reported on then-President George W. Bush‘s time in the National Guard.

“Dan Rather was fake news before there was fake news!” Watters exclaimed. “This guy came in and tried to frame George W. Bush with forged documents on the eve on the election. He got fired. That was actually the public service. Bye-bye Dan!”
