Jesse Watters: Flag protesters like ‘bitter’ Kaepernick want ‘to divide the country and make everybody else feel miserable’

Westlake Legal Group Watters-Kaepernick_FOX-Getty Jesse Watters: Flag protesters like 'bitter' Kaepernick want 'to divide the country and make everybody else feel miserable' fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/sports fox-news/person/colin-kaepernick fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 3be44e9b-c3ca-50e7-9164-c7e39813d5d4 /FOX NEWS/LIFESTYLE/OCCASIONS/Holiday

Ex-NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s reported objection to Nike’s Betsy Ross-themed sneakers is the latest disturbing expression of anti-American sentiment, according to Jesse Watters.

Watters said the former quarterback, as well as others who protest the national anthem and object to outward expressions of patriotism, are trying to divide the country, on Tuesday’s “The Five.”

“I do think they want the end of the country,” he said. “They are trying to destroy the flag — trying to destroy the national anthem, the borders, the presidents.

NIKE DROPPED BETSY ROSS-THEMED FOURTH OF JULY SNEAKER AFTER COLIN KAEPERNICK COMPLAINED, REPORT SAYS

“Instead, we should be trying to have a conversation about improving the country, but all this does is divide it. And, that’s what Colin wants. He is unhappy with himself. He is a bitter man, and he wants to divide the country and make everybody else feel as miserable as he does.”

Additionally, Watters said the 31-year-old athlete further revealed himself as “anti-American.”

“When someone like this guy… can dictate to an American company to not celebrate our independence on July 4, we are in a really sad state,” the “Watters’ World” host said.

“I agree this country was flawed — it was founded on slavery and we fought a Civil War to end that stain — but that doesn’t define America, slavery.

“To say we just have to get rid of everything about this country, everything about the founding of this country because of slavery, that does not unite the country.”

Earlier this week, Nike nixed the released of the Air Max 1 USA after having already sent the sneakers to retailers because the protesting quarterback said he felt the use of the Betsy Ross flag was offensive and carried slavery connotations, sources told The Wall Street Journal.

Citing people familiar with the matter, the Journal’s report stated: “After images of the shoe were posted online, Mr. Kaepernick, a Nike endorser, reached out to company officials saying that he and others felt the Betsy Ross flag is an offensive symbol because of its connection to an era of slavery.”

Fox News’ Liam Quinn contributed to this report.

Ambassador Grenell: Human Rights Campaign should ‘cease to exist’ if they stay silent on Antifa attack

Westlake Legal Group grenell-Andy-Ngo Ambassador Grenell: Human Rights Campaign should 'cease to exist' if they stay silent on Antifa attack fox-news/us/crime/antifa fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/americas-newsroom fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/us fnc article Anna Hopkins 98c54a10-4a0a-570e-9d13-8446b1f5cc44

The U.S. Ambassador to Germany Richard Grenell slammed organizations like the Human Rights Campaign for their silence in light of the attack on conservative journalist Andy Ngo over the weekend.

Ngo was videotaped being punched, kicked and doused with a milkshake by Antifa members during a clash between them and a right-wing group on Saturday in Portland. The footage did not show what led up to the attack or what followed, but there did not appear to be a police presence.

Grenell, a friend of Ngo’s, told “America’s Newsroom” Tuesday that he believes Antifa targeted Ngo for his political affiliations, as well as his race and sexuality.

“They knew that he is gay, that he’s Asian, and that he is conservative,” Grenell said.

ATTORNEY FOR JOURNALIST ATTACKED BY ANTIFA SAYS SHE PLANS TO ‘SUE EVERYBODY’ THE LAW PERMITS

“We are now in a situation where the largest gay and lesbian groups have stayed silent, not only stayed silent, but their spokeswoman has tried to change it around to say he deserves this,” he continued.

The ambassador referred to the Human Rights Campaign, an organization which does not appear to have made a public statement about the attack on Ngo. Their press secretary, Charlotte Clymer, condemned the violence in a tweet to her personal Twitter account, but highlighted Ngo’s history as a provocateur.

PORTLAND MAYOR SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED BY FEDS OVER ANTIFA ATTACK ON CONSERVATIVE WRITER, SEN. CRUZ SAYS

“Andy Ngo intentionally provokes people on the left to drive his content. Being attacked today on video taken by an actual journalist (because Ngo is definitely not) is the greatest thing that could have happened to his career,” she wrote on Sunday.

“Violence is completely wrong, and I find it sad and weak to allow a sniveling weasel like Andy Ngo to get under one’s skin like this, but I’m also not going to pretend that this wasn’t Ngo’s goal from the start,” she continued.

Grenell called the comments “completely wrong” and insinuated that the organization is staying silent because Ngo is conservative and of Asian descent.

“This is an organization that demands to have a voice, and if they are not going to use their voice across the board in every situation when a gay person is bashed like this, then they should cease to exist,” he said.

Kellyanne Conway calls AOC’s border visit a photo op: ‘People need to challenge this’

Westlake Legal Group conway-AOC-FOX-AP Kellyanne Conway calls AOC's border visit a photo op: 'People need to challenge this' Nick Givas fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc c97ef363-91e6-5215-b63c-51b0e9f9d179 article

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s visit to a southern border detention center was nothing more than a “photo-op” and accused her of being hypocritical on “Fox & Friends” Tuesday.

Conway cited the $4.6 billion bipartisan humanitarian aid package which was passed by both houses of Congress and signed by President Trump on Monday and chastised those who voted against it, specifically Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

AOC CLAIMS WOMEN AT BORDER FACILITY BEING FORCED TO DRINK ‘OUT OF TOILETS’ AFTER TOUR

“I have a whole list here of anchors and people on TV and Democrat who said it was a manufactured crisis, who now dropped the word ‘manufactured,’ and are calling what they see at the border, a crisis,” she said.

Chuck Schumer wants to talk about photo-ops? I saw one yesterday and it’s called, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, going down to one of these facilities and making this outrageous claim that a woman is drinking from a toilet — which everybody who has control over that facility … has said that is not true,” Conway continued.

She said when Ocasio-Cortez was challenged by a reporter on whether she actually saw someone drink from the toilet, “she put the window up” in her vehicle.

“People need to challenge this because she’s one of 95 people, Democrats, who voted against the aid package. You either want the humanitarian aid, the $4.6 billion to go and help, or you want the photo-op.”

Host Brian Kilmeade asked Conway if she was optimistic about Congress reaching a deal on immigration asylum fixes and Conway said Trump intends to tackle that issue next.

“We need Congress to step in, fix the asylum laws,” she replied. “I think fixing asylum is the next big step. And we’re ready. The President is ready. They can come over today and do that.”

In June, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., also expressed optimism about a bipartisan asylum fix and said he was working closely across the aisle with Sen. DIck Durbin, D-Ill., to find a permanent solution to the crisis.

Ocasio-Cortez made headlines Monday as she took to Twitter to describe her experiences at a Texas detention facility, including alleging women were forced to drink “out of toilets” and were called crude names by some of the guards.

Conway also spoke about acting Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Kevin McAleenan’s trip to El Salvador and said the administration’s goal is to help assist Central American countries to help limit illegal immigration to the U.S.

“Look at what happened when the president and the vice president, Secretary Pompeo met with the Mexicans. They’ve been terrific. They’ve done more than some of the Democrats,” she said, emphasizing the president’s stance that immigrants must come legally.

‘Fox & Friends’ takes on AOC’s explosive accusations against border agents

Westlake Legal Group FFhosts 'Fox & Friends' takes on AOC's explosive accusations against border agents fox-news/us/immigration/border-security fox-news/us/immigration fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-friends fox-news/person/alexandria-ocasio-cortez fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc David Montanaro article 129e7e63-c2ab-57f0-a97a-d3d8078fef3a

The hosts of “Fox & Friends” reacted Tuesday to new, explosive accusations against border agents from Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after she made a visit to a Texas detention facility.

Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., allegedly screamed at Customs and Border Protection agents “in a threatening manner” during the visit, according to a report — after she alleged that there is one facility where women being detained are forced to drink “out of toilets.”

Brian Hastings, deputy chief of Border Patrol, denied Ocasio-Cortez’s allegations during an interview on “The Story.” He unequivocally stated fresh drinking water is provided to people in custody.

HOLOCAUST SURVIVOR SAYS OCASIO-CORTEZ SHOULD BE ‘REMOVED’ FROM CONGRESS FOR SPREADING ‘ANTI-SEMITISM, HATRED AND STUPIDITY’

Earlier Monday, the congresswoman accused CBP of having a “violent culture” after a report from ProPublica surfaced about a secret Facebook group where Border Patrol agents allegedly posted graphic and vulgar jokes about the Democratic lawmaker as well as illegal immigrants.

Ocasio-Cortez also alleged that some officers were treating female migrants in a degrading manner and calling them crude names, arguing that the issues she witnessed were not due to a lack of funding.

Host Ainsley Earhardt said if the allegations are true, then the offending agents must be removed.

“These are human beings,” she said, as Brian Kilmeade agreed that “no one is defending” the comments alleged to have been made by some agents in the secret Facebook group.

The purported Facebook posts were slammed by the head of Border Patrol on Monday as “completely inappropriate.”

“These posts are completely inappropriate and contrary to the honor and integrity I see — and expect — from our agents day in and day out,” Border Patrol Chief Carla Provost said. “Any employees found to have violated our standards of conduct will be held accountable.”

Kilmeade said the situation on the border has gotten worse and worse as the Border Patrol has pleaded with Congress and the White House to fix the laws.

“It wasn’t their idea to have a wide open border. It was bad asylum rules that allowed this to happen and then you throw it all on the Border Patrol and you wonder why facilities are inadequate,” he said, adding it’s an “embarrassment in Washington” that President Trump had to negotiate with Mexico to help with the problem, rather than U.S. lawmakers handling the issue.

KT McFarland says Trump meeting Kim is like Nixon-Mao statecraft, dismisses critics

Westlake Legal Group AP19181249561896 KT McFarland says Trump meeting Kim is like Nixon-Mao statecraft, dismisses critics fox-news/world/world-regions/china fox-news/world/world-regions/asia fox-news/world/conflicts/north-korea fox-news/topic/fox-news-flash fox-news/shows/fox-news-night fox-news/politics/foreign-policy fox-news/person/kim-jong-un fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/politics fnc Charles Creitz article 3d41f07f-9117-5ac1-9a3a-e04c94356192

President Trump’s ongoing diplomatic efforts with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un are reminiscent of former President Richard Nixon opening a channel with China, according to K.T. McFarland.

The president’s handshake with Kim is similar to Nixon’s iconic photograph with China’s Communist then-leader Mao Zedong, McFarland claimed Monday on “Fox News @Night.

“In 1972, there was a picture of Richard Nixon and Mao Zedong, who was president of China, and the two of them by shaking that hand, it gave the signal to all the Chinese people that things have changed — we now have a good relationship with America — they’re now our friends and we’re now going to have peace and prosperity,” she said.

“I think the pictures of Kim shaking Trump’s hand… they’re sending that signal to the North Koreans.”

The former Trump deputy national security adviser added Kim is also “invested” in his relationship with Trump.

“What Trump’s done is he’s gotten leverage,” she said.

“When you talked about the pictures and some of the people who have criticized Trump and say he’s giving him status. He’s respecting him on the world stage. That’s exactly right.

“Kim is now seeing life in Singapore, he’s now seeing life in Vietnam, he’s now seeing what the future might hold for him — not just for Kim, but his leadership.”

At the same time, Trump has little to lose by engaging with Kim.

“If nothing happens, Trump walks away,” she said. “He calls him Rocketman again.”

TRUMP, KIM MEET AT DEMILITARIZED ZONE, FACE-TO-FACE FOR FIRST TIME SINCE HANOI

“If Kim doesn’t deliver on this, I think he may have potential problems within his own leadership cadre.”

McFarland said former President Barack Obama’s strategy did not accomplish any progress with North Korea, and criticized former Vice President Joe Biden for attacking Trump on the issue.

In a tweet, Biden reacted to Trump’s visit to the Demilitarized Zone.

“Not one missile or nuclear weapon has been destroyed, not one inspector is on the ground,” he wrote.

“If anything, the situation has gotten worse. North Korea has continued to churn out fissile material and is no longer an isolated pariah on the world stage.”

McFarland said the former Delaware senator should look to his former boss’ actions on the matter before critiquing the current president.

“That’s coming from a vice president whose president had a strategic doctrine with North Korea which was strategic patience — in other words to not do anything.”

Geraldo Rivera: Border Patrol must show ‘decency’

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera had strong words for Border Patrol agents after an expose brought to light a secret Facebook group comprised of former and current members that included vulgar and disparaging comments aimed at immigrants and Hispanic congresswomen.

“This ProPublica expose is an indication of the kind of moral exhaustion within the Border Patrol now that can not be tolerated. Members of Congress must be treated with respect. You cannot insult the dead body of a migrant father… trying to get his young child across the Rio Grande,” Rivera said on “The Story with Martha MacCallum.”

OCASIO-CORTEZ ACCUSES BORDER OFFICERS OF ‘VIOLENT CULTURE’ AFTER REPORT ON GRAPHIC FACEBOOK POSTS

The ProPublica website posted a story Monday headlined “Inside the Secret Border Patrol Facebook Group Where Agents Joke About Migrant Deaths and Post Sexist Memes.” In addition to showing indifference toward the deaths of migrants, members made vulgar jokes about Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus ahead of their visit to a Border Patrol facility in Texas.

According to ProPublica, in one post a group member referenced the visits by Democrats and encouraged an officer to throw a “burrito at these b—–s.” Other posts included a vile, fake photo illustration of Ocasio-Cortez engaged in oral sex with President Trump.

Ocasio-Cortez accused U.S. Customs and Border Protection on Twitter of having a “violent culture.”

Rivera noted that he had sympathy for the agents and law enforcement but asked for them to show “decency.”

Rivera said he sympathized with the agents and their mission but said U.S. citizens have the right to be outraged.

Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” got an exclusive view over the weekend of President Trump’s historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un when Trump became the first sitting American chief executive to cross the demilitarized zone into North Korea.

Prior to the meeting between Trump and Kim, Tucker Carlson and his crew crossed several checkpoints to reach the Joint Security Area and Military Demarcation Line, which marked what Carlson described as “the greatest divide on planet Earth.”

MSNBC PANEL USES BIZARRE ANALOGY TO BASH TRUMP OVER KIM JONG UN MEETING 

“Behind me are two countries that could not be more different,” Carlson said. “On the left is South Korea … To the right, less than half a mile [away] is North Korea … On the left, one of the richest countries in the world. On the right, the single poorest. Amazing.”

After Trump arrived, in the company of South Korean President Moon Jae In, the president shook hands with Kim, then took 10 steps onto the North Korean side of the demarcation line before escorting the dictator back to the South for talks at Freedom House, where they agreed to revive stalled negotiations over the country’s nuclear program.

“That was unbelievable,” Carlson said as the leaders went inside. “… That was mind-blowing!”

The event was marred by a scuffle between American and South Korean journalists and Kim’s personal security force, whom Carlson described as “the most humorless people I think I’ve ever seen.”

“There was a scuffle in very tight quarters on the way into the conversation between Trump and Kim [in Freedom House],” said Carlson, who also called out North Korean cameramen and photographers for blocking the view of reporters.

“They set up ladders as Kim came out and stood right in front of the American cameramen. Our Secret Service tried to push them back and … it got intense.”

Kevin McCarthy: Why Bernie Sanders has the best chance to win 2020 Dem nomination

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., has the best shot at becoming the 2020 Democratic presidential nominee — not current front-runner former Vice President Joe Biden, according to Rep. Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif.

Because of the Democratic Party’s leftward shift, Sanders’ history as a self-described democratic socialist is more in line with where they are today, McCarthy claimed Monday on “Special Report.”

“I don’t think Joe Biden is going to become the nominee,” he said.

BERNIE SANDERS ACCUSES ERIC SWALWELL OF ‘AGEISM’ FOR HIS ‘PASS THE TORCH’ REMARKS

“Not for this position, but for many positions going forward. He’s got a long history. I think his timing is wrong and I think he will not be the nominee.

“I think Bernie Sanders has the best chance of becoming the nominee because where this Democratic Party has moved. It’s no longer the Democratic Party, it’s become the Socialist-Democrat Party and Bernie Sanders has the best philosophy, because he was registered a socialist, to represent the current party.”

While he believes the Vermont lawmaker has the best chance of winning the Democratic nod, the House Majority Leader added the economy under President Trump appears to be at one of its strongest points since World War II.

“This month alone, June, the best we’ve ever had on the market in 80 years,” McCarthy said.

The lawmaker claimed the president’s decision to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un at the Demilitarized Zone and his performance at the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan will help coalesce voters around his reelection bid.

“These are historical times, and I think that is what’s going to help propel this president to reelection,” he said.

President Trump sat down with Fox News host Tucker Carlson for an exclusive interview during his visit to Japan for the G20 summit and shared his plans to combat rising homelessness and mental illness in America.

During the interview, Trump told Carlson he is “looking at it very seriously” and said some people forced to live on the streets are “living in hell.”

“It’s disgraceful. I’m going to maybe and I’m looking at it very seriously,” Trump said. “We’re doing some other things that you probably noticed like some of the very important things that we’re doing now.  But we’re looking at it very seriously because you can’t do that.

“You can’t have what’s happening — where police officers are getting sick just by walking the beat. I mean, they’re getting actually very sick, where people are getting sick, where the people living there living in hell, too.”

Trump continued, saying most people suffering from homelessness have an accompanying mental illness and sometimes don’t realize they’re living in their own filth. He also said the issue needs to be addressed before it starts affecting healthy working people as well.

“Some of them have mental problems where they don’t even know they’re living that way,” he said. “In fact, perhaps they like living that way. They can’t do that. We cannot ruin our cities.  And you have people that work in those cities.  They work in office buildings and to get into the building, they have to walk through a scene that nobody would have believed possible three years ago.”

Trump blamed the liberal politicians for exacerbating the problem and said he’s been fighting them on all fronts, including within the city limits of Washington, D.C.

“And this is the liberal establishment. This is what I’m fighting,” he added. “They — I don’t know if they’re afraid of votes. I don’t know if they really believe that this should be taking place.  But it’s a terrible thing that’s taking place. And we may be — you know, I had a situation when I first became president, we had certain areas of Washington, D.C. where that was starting to happen, and I ended it very quickly.

“When we have leaders of the world coming in to see the President of the United States and they’re riding down a highway, they can’t be looking at that. I really believe that it hurts our country.

“They can’t be looking at scenes like you see in Los Angeles and San Francisco.  San Francisco… so we’re looking at it very seriously.  We may intercede.  We may do something to get that whole thing cleaned up.  It’s inappropriate.”

Trump also said it shouldn’t fall on the federal government to address the issue, but didn’t give any indication that it would deter his administration from getting involved.

“We’re really not very equipped as a government to be doing that kind of work,” he told Carlson. “That’s not really the kind of work that the government probably should be doing. We’ve never had this in our lives before in our country.  And it’s not only those few cities, it’s a couple of other ones.”

The president’s comments came after figures released last month stated the number of homeless people in Los Angeles County jumped 12 percent over the past year, officials announced Tuesday, despite $619 million in government spending to help alleviate the problem.

The annual point-in-time count recorded nearly 59,000 homeless people countywide, with the largest number — 36,000 — coming from the city of Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Homeless Services Authority, a county agency which conducted the count, delivered its report to the Board of Supervisors at its Tuesday meeting.

The 2018 tally found a slight decrease in the homeless population at just over 53,000 people. Supervisor Janice Hahn called the new numbers “disheartening.”

The count found a 24 percent increase in homeless youth, defined as people under 25, and a 7 percent jump in people 62 or older. An estimated 29 percent of people experiencing homelessness are mentally ill or have substance abuse issues, officials said.

Jesse Watters: Trump-Kim DMZ meeting will be key moment for historians

President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un’s meeting at the Demilitarized Zone will be looked back on as a key moment in history, according to Jesse Watters.

The president’s continued work to soften relations with Kim is something different and positive, and scholars will take notice, Watters claimed Monday on “The Five.”

“Everything that other presidents have done has not worked,” he said.

“It has gotten more dangerous in North Korea. This president comes along and tries something different. He’s been criticized the entire time.

TRUMP, KIM MEET AT DEMILITARIZED ZONE, FACE-TO-FACE FOR FIRST TIME SINCE HANOI

“I think everybody can agree we are heading in the right direction. There is a thaw and historians will acknowledge this step across the DMZ was a very powerful and important moment.”

Watters also dismissed criticisms of Trump from some of 2020 Democratic presidential contenders.

In one clip, Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio, claimed Trump’s visit to the border village of Panmunjom was like former British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain, “going to talk to Hitler.”

Former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, called the president’s actions “bizarre foreign policy” and claimed the Republican, “added legitimacy to Kim Jong Un.”

In response, Watters pointed out South Korean President Moon Jae-in called Trump, “the maker of peace on the Korean peninsula.”

“I think everybody needs to be reminded that people in the region appreciate what Donald Trump is doing over there diplomatically.”

In stepping over the border, Trump became the first sitting U.S. president to set foot inside North Korea.

“I was proud to step over the line,” Trump told Kim later, inside the Freedom House on the South Korea side, according to the Associated Press.

“It is a great day for the world.”
