‘Your Understanding of This Stuff Is So Sophomoric!’ Fox’s Beckel, Watters Clash Over WaPo Report

The hosts of Fox News’ The Five tonight discussed the big news about President Trump allegedly revealing classified information to top Russian officials, and Bob Beckel and Jesse Watters got into a heated back-and-forth over this.

Beckel said this is a serious leak, but Watters pushed back on the Washington Post report by saying, “The Washington Post was wrong about Sean Spicer hiding in the Bush. They were wrong about Rosenstein, the deputy AG, resigning.”

When he noted how Trump has been “at war with the intelligence agencies,” Beckel buried his head in his hands.

He told Watters, “Your understanding of this stuff is so sophomoric!”

Watters shot back that this is all about “level of outrage based on political party,” before going on to make this observation about leaks:

“If you’re a disloyal person, you sing to the Washington Post. If you’re a loyal person, you take it to your superior.”
