With Bill O’Reilly now gone from Fox News, is high-powered attorney Lisa Bloom looking to help oust another piece of the network’s primetime lineup?

Earlier, we posted about comments made by Jesse Watters about Ivanka Trump on Tuesday night’s edition of The Five

“I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone,” Watters said after Fox News ran footage of the first daughter speaking on a panel in Germany.

Watters clarified his comment in a statement to Mediaite and in a subsequent tweet:

But his clarification did little to stop all the criticism today. From CNN’s Jake Tapper (who appeared to take an indirect shot at the “vile behavior” at Fox) to conservative writer John Podhoretz (who called Watters “a disgusting pig”), the Fox News personality’s remark has been widely condemned.

And now, add Lisa Bloom to the list. The attorney who represented three of the women accused by O’Reilly of sexual harassment suggested that Watters might be the next Fox News personality to be “brought down”:

The controversy comes just two days into Watters’ stint as a regular panelist on The Five, which made its primetime bow on Monday.

As of this writing, Watters has not responded to Bloom.
