Fox News host tells co-host: ‘You sound like you’re high right now’

Fox News host Jesse Watters took aim at his co-host Juan Williams during Tuesday’s episode of “The Five,” mocking Williams on-air and joking that his fellow co-host sounded as if he was on drugs.

{mosads}During a contentious debate between the two personalities over President Trump’s planned wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, Williams, who is an opinion columnist for The Hill, asserted that such a barrier would do little to stop drug trafficking, a top concern of the Trump administration, asserting that most trafficking occurs at legal ports of entry.

“The bigger one is the drugs that you often cite,” Williams said, addressing Watters. “Again, he says drugs are coming through that southern border and most people say ‘no, most drugs come through legal ports of entry.'”

“Well, you would know, Juan, because you sound like you’re high right now,” Watters said, to laughter from other members of “The Five.”

Fox News did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Watters’s remarks.
