Exposing Hillary So She Won't Get Elected

Jesse Watters and Bob Beckel Battle it Out on ‘The Five’

“The Five” co-hosts, Jesse Watters and Bob Beckel, had a heated exchange when discussing the Washington Post story claiming President Trump leaked classified intel to Russian officials.

Democratic strategist Beckel believed the anonymously sourced Washing Post story, saying Trump committed a serious breach.

Watters pushed back, citing the Post’s history of reporting things incorrectly, such as when they claimed back in December of 2016 that Russians hacked a Vermont power grid. That story proved to be false.

Watters then noted other inaccurate examples of the Washington Post’s recent reports regarding Trump:

The Washington Post was wrong about Sean Spicer hiding in the bushes. They were wrong about Rosenstein, the deputy AG, resigning. You can’t trust everything from the Washington Post.

Watters also noted how many believe that there are several members of the intelligence community that have been actively trying to sabotage and undermine Trump since he took office by leaking stories to the press.

“We also know that Trump has been at war with the intelligence agencies for a very long time, and people have been leaking against him from the very beginning,” Watters said. “If you’re a disloyal person, you sing to the Washington Post. If you’re a loyal person, you take it to your superior.”

Jesse Watters said when Obama committed actual, verifiable breaches of national security, the media turned a blind eye: “When the Obama White House put out a press release with the name of the CIA station chief in Afghanistan, that guy had to fly back on the next flight outta there, and no one cared. No one cared!”

Beckel replied: “Yeah, that was a bad deal, but not nearly as bad as this. Your understanding of this stuff is so sophomoric!”

Watters fired back: “Your level of outrage based on political party, that’s what’s outrageous … I trust McMaster over you.”
