Fox’s Jesse Watters Trolls The Five: Obama Would ‘Thank The Japanese for Bombing Pearl Harbor’

Screen Shot 2016-02-11 at 7.15.30 PMDuring a roundtable discussion on The Five Thursday night, Fox’s Jesse Watters took the opportunity to steer a conversation about Barack Obama‘s perceived weakness to a disingenuous rock bottom.

“I think if Obama was president in the 1930s,” Watters trolled, “he’d probably thank the Japanese for bombing Pearl Harbor.” (For the record, the attack on Pearl Harbor took place in the early 1940s. December 7, 1941, to be precise.)

To his credit, Eric Bolling deflected the question — even though Watters asked him directly to respond — so that the titular “five” could get back to their regularly scheduled fair and balanced commentary.
