Jeanine Pirro Accuses Jesse Watters of Fueling Fake News After He Mocks Her for Getting Snubbed at Trump Rally

Jesse Watters poked some fun at his Fox News colleague Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night for not getting mentioned by President Donald Trump at his rally  — and the Judge did not take it well.

Trump shouted out all of his favorite Fox News personalities at his rally in Ohio Saturday night, including Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Tucker Carlson, Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade.

We at Mediaite noticed he didn’t mention one of his biggest cheerleaders at the network, Jeanine Pirro… Jesse Watters apparently noticed as well.

On his show Watters World, which aired after the rally, Watters joked: “Well Judge Jeanine’s very upset because she was not mentioned there by the president, I think I heard her throw a glass in the green room.”

Pirro, whose show airs after Watters’ World, didn’t wait until she went on air before firing back at Watters.

“You’re adding credence to the concept of fake news,” she scolded the young host.

At the end of Watters’ show, he clarified that he was joking:
