Dan Crenshaw takes swipe at Jesse Watters following accusations of corruption

 January 5, 2024

Texas Republican Congressmember Dan Crenshaw accused Fox News host Jesse Watters of broadcasting for the purpose of views after Watters accused him of corruption.

The lawmaker also asserted that the network canceled his appearance out of retaliation due to the situation, as The Blaze reported.

After Watters accused Crenshaw of abusing his position by making money off of stock trades, Crenshaw responded angrily on Instagram.

Crenshaw Response

“Hey you f***ing hack, if you’re gonna accuse me of literal corruption, get your facts straight and man up and come accuse me to my face. You’re a f***ing clown, desperate for clickbait,” Crenshaw replied.

He then proceeded to reveal the details of his stock holdings: "I literally have $10,000 invested in stocks, and haven't made trades in over a year. I have never had more than ~ $20k invested while in Congress," the Texas Republican said. "Fox knows this but they're desperate for fake controversy to get clicks," Crenshaw continued.

“Watters is a tool, making millions to push conspiracies on tv, and bash veterans like me who are barely a fraction of his net worth," he added. "Wake up America. The political entertainment industry is almost always lying to you.”

Crenshaw went on to offer some harsh words for Watters about his divorce in 2019 after ten years of marriage that was shrouded in talk of cheating.

“Losers like Watters grew up with a silver spoon. His family is made up of well-connected journalists and politicians," he continued.

"And for some reason, people are fooled into believing he’s some genuine blue-collar conservative. Yeah he’s such a ‘conservative’ he cheated on his wife and then left her with twins while he went off with another Fox producer."

In order to demonstrate that he was relatively low on the list, Crenshaw also published the list of congressional members and their stock transactions.

"Why choose me? Because he's a f***ing clown chasing clicks. He knows people will recognize me and react," he wrote.

He later asserted that his scheduled appearance on Fox had been canceled: “LMFAO, Fox just canceled an interview we had pre-scheduled tonight,” Crenshaw wrote. “Guess I hurt their feelings by calling out their bull****.”

According to a representative for Crenshaw, who spoke to the Daily Caller, the congressman had bought stocks while the market was down, "which is exactly what countless other Americans do when they invest in the stock market.”

After comedian Pete Davidson made fun of Crenshaw's wounds sustained in the Iraq War on Saturday Night Live, his fame soared.

Davidson and Crenshaw received plaudits for publicly making amends, but the comedian then said that SNL show bosses had compelled him to apologize.
