Dan Crenshaw recently claimed that Jesse Watters cheated on his wife after the Fox host ran a segment that included claims about the Texas congressman.
Watters, a prominent Fox personality, is more of a troll than a journalist. He recently ran a segment about lawmakers who have done well on the stock market. He included Crenshaw in that spot, saying:
"Our politicians crushed the market in 2023- smoking professional money managers who do this all day for a living. Some of them are even investing in companies they have inside information on. Ladies and gentlemen, this is what corruption looks like. And this is why Congress still hasn't passed a ban on insider stock trading."
Crenshaw responded over Instagram stories, writing to Watters, "Hey you f*cking hack, if you’re gonna accuse me of literal corruption, get your facts straight and man up and come accuse me to my face. You’re a fucking clown, desperate for clickbait. I literally have $10,000 invested in stocks, and haven’t made trades in over a year."
The Texas Rep. then got particularly personal with the attack, continuing, "losers like Watters grew up with a silver spoon. For some reason, people are fooled into believing he’s some genuine blue-collar conservative. Yeah, he’s such a ‘conservative’ he cheated on his wife and then left her with twins while he went off with another Fox producer."
According to Crenshaw, Fox was not at all happy about the attack and he had an upcoming interview with the station canceled.
