Jesse Watters, the Fox News host known for his humorous man-on-the-street confrontations, dropped the comedy act when a guest who’d criticized the wife of a fallen Navy SEAL appeared on his show this weekend, and things got heated — fast.
John Schindler, a former National Security Agency analyst, has been particularly critical of the Trump administration on his Twitter account. The U.K. Independent reported that Schindler had intimated he has information about collusion with the Russians that could send Trump administration figures to jail. No evidence was given about this, mind you, but the liberal media lapped it up.
However, Schindler went too far when he decided to go after the wife of fallen Navy SEAL William “Ryan” Owens on social media after President Donald Trump paid tribute to her during his address to a joint session of Congress.
“Bad decisions happen. War is war. Right until POTUS publicly exploits a widow whose husband’s body is still warm. F*** that. F*** all that,” Schindler wrote in one Twitter post.
“If watching POTUS publicly exploit S/Chief Owens’ widow didn’t make your skin crawl, I worry about you — as an American & a human,” read another.
Schindler tried to explain himself on Watters’ show.
“I have no problem with the president honoring Mrs. Owens,” he said. “What I have a problem with is, hours before, he had passed the buck and said they — meaning the senior military leadership — had gotten her husband killed. ‘They lost him’ is what he literally said.”
Watters quickly took Schindler to task.
“This isn’t about the raid,” Watters said. “It’s about this widow and her husband, and it’s about the long service he has given this country.”
“I can’t believe that you would denigrate the service and sacrifice of this family by accusing her of being a pawn for the president,” he continued. “You wouldn’t say that to her face, would you?”
When Schindler said he would, Watters responded that he would get “slapped in the face.”
“Your hate for Trump is clouding your compassion,” Watters said.
He concluded with a powerful line.
“Everybody in America thought this was a beautiful moment, except you and a few kooks,” Watters said. “If you want to throw in with the people on ‘The View,’ if you want to throw in with Michael Moore and Bill Maher, that’s fine. But the rest of the country thought that was a powerful moment and it was about HER, not your political agenda.”

Ouch. Brutal, but 100 percent true. As much as we love the funny Jesse Watters, we can’t help but also appreciate his stand against impugning a military widow by calling her a pawn.
