Fox News co-host of “The Five”, Jesse Watters, blasted MSNBC and CNN for censoring Donald Trump’s victory speech Monday night after the former president secured a historic win in the Iowa Caucus.

Trump received 51% of the vote, with Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis at 21.2%, and former United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley at 19.1%.

“Remember in the 80’s when the hip-hop album came out and they put that warning, “explicit material — parental advisory” on it? It made me want to buy it,” Jesse Watters said.

“And that’s what they’re doing at CNN and MSNBC. It makes you just want to watch what you’re not allowed to. We’re big boys. We’re big girls. We don’t need parental control features on a news channel,” he expressed.

“The Five” co-host wondered, “What kind of a business model is a news channel, where they don’t take live news,” adding, “That’s not very smart.”

“When you vote for a guy and he wins and then he speaks afterward to the voters, that’s like, connective tissue in democracy. You can’t save democracy by censoring democracy,” Watters added.


Rachel Maddow at MSNBC claimed, “There is a cost to us as a news organization in knowingly broadcasting untrue things. That is a fundamental truth of our business and who we are, and so his remarks tonight will not air here live, we will monitor them and let you know about any news that he makes.”

Jake Tapper, on CNN, interrupted President Trump’s speech as he began talking about illegal immigrants flooding into the U.S. through the southern border. Tapper referred to Trump’s remarks against illegal immigration as “anti-immigrant rhetoric.”
