In a segment on the new primetime “The Five” last night, Jesse Watters, rightfully so, hit on libs for their treatment of Ivanka Trump. And then he made a comment on how much he likes the way the president’s daughter speaks into a microphone:

Now he could be commenting on her poise in a professional sense, or he could be making a crude joke.
Update 12:54 p.m.
Waters says he was “referring to Ivanka’s voice and how it resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ”:
On air I was referring to Ivanka's voice and how it resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ. This was in no way a joke about anything else.

Most on both the Left and the Right heard the joke:
The Jesse Waters on-air joke about Ivanka doesn't really dispel those employee claims that Fox News has a leering frat boy atmosphere, huh?

Jesse Waters complains the Left doesn't respect Ivanka Trump and then in front of 2.5 million people intimates Ivanka was blowing her mike.

Can't believe we have to go over this again. Ahem.
YOU CAN HATE IVANKA WITHOUT MAKING BLOW JOB JOKES. Do not make me feel empathy for her.

"It's terrible how the left doesn't respect women like Ivanka. Hey, it totally looks like she's blowing that mic, amirite???!" https://t.co/NYfvvpaA0T
