Jesse Watters Calls for CNN Reporters to Lose WH Press Passes: If You Act Like a ‘Wild Animal,’ You Don’t Belong
On Thursday, The Five hosts weighed in on CNN’s Brian Karem lashing out at Sarah Sanders for her lack of empathy over the policy of having kids ripped away from their families at the border.
Karem’s outburst happened after his CNN colleague Jim Acosta also clashed with Sanders about the morality of removing kids from their parents during Thursday’s press briefing.
In response, Jesse Watters called Karem “an emotional wreck.”
“He embarrassed himself. He doesn’t belong in the room. It’s like Acosta. I don’t care if you have opinions like that. Be an analyst. Go debate it on CNN on primetime but don’t pretend to be a non-partisan correspondent and then meltdown like that and embarrass your integrity,” Watters opined.
Then Watters said this: “These people don’t belong there. They are jokes. They need to start ripping press passes away. If you’re going to act like a wild animal, you don’t belong there.”
That prompted one of his fellow hosts to respond, “When animals attack!”
UPDATE: Jim Acosta responded to Watters, tweeting out, “This from a lapdog for the White House.”
