Fox’s Watters: Trump Isn’t Racist Because he Accused Scarborough of Murder
During a Monday press briefing, Donald Trump told CBS’ Weijia Jiang to “ask China,” rather than answer a difficult question. Critics were quick to point out that the President grows especially irritated when asked a tough question by a woman and most especially, a woman of color.
The topic of whether or not the query was handled properly during Tuesday’s episode of The Five. Fox News anchor Jesse Watters took a unique angle on the topic, saying that Trump can’t be racist because he recently accused a white man of murder.
Host Greg Gutfield began the segment by saying, “This isn’t just about Trump. Calling him racist is the media’s gateway drug to calling you the same thing.”
Watters then took the subject in an entirely different direction. He told the audience, “This morning the president accused an anchor on television of murdering an intern, okay? That was pretty bad! And this is a white male anchor that he accused of murdering an intern! I mean, come on, man!”
Around a week ago, Trump tweeted, “‘Concast’ should open up a long overdue Florida Cold Case against Psycho Joe Scarborough. I know him and Crazy Mika well, used them beautifully in the last Election, dumped them nicely, and will state on the record that he is “nuts”. Besides, bad ratings!”

The President was at it again this morning, writing, “Cold Case Joe.”

The “case” Trump is referring to is the death of former Scarborough staffer, Lori Klausutis, who died in his congressional office. The former congressman was in Washington at the time of her death and an autopsy found that she died from an undiagnosed heart condition.
