Fox News Panel Goes Off the Rails After Guest Calls Trump’s LeBron Tweet ‘Borderline Racist’
A Watters’ World panel went off the rails on Saturday and it was all over President Donald Trump‘s tweet on LeBron James.
On Friday, Trump sparked a firestorm when he tweeted this about James:
Lebron James was just interviewed by the dumbest man on television, Don Lemon. He made Lebron look smart, which isn’t easy to do. I like Mike!

Responding to the controversy, host Jesse Watters asked the panel to weigh in.
Guest panelists political commentator Wendy Osefo and conservative activist Anna Paulina both had strong opinions on the topic, but things really got heated when Osefo said Trump’s comment was divisive and “borderline racist.”
“President Trump has called out by name… Colin Kaepernick, Stephen Curry and LeBron James,” Osefo said. “But he has never responded to criticism by [Greg] Popovich, he has never responded to Eminem…”
Watters shot back that he could name a “dozen” white people Trump has attacked.
Paulina then piled on, asking about Dak Prescott and what he has been facing on Twitter.
“Why don’t you listen?” Paulina shouted.
“Stop yelling!” Osefo finally shot back.
“This has now turned into something completely ridiculous—we’re unable to have a conversation so I’m just going to go to the next segment, OK?” Watters said, cutting them off and bringing the segment to an end.
