It looks like Dan Crenshaw might’ve just burned down a major bridge between him and Fox News.
The Republican Rep. recently lashed out at Jesse Watters after the Fox host covered a segment on insider trading. This apparently struck a chord with Crenshaw, and he went on a bizarre tirade against Watters, dropping many curse words and claiming that Jesse is ‘the type of dude who pees sitting down.’
These are unhinged statements that you really can’t come back from, and Fox News has already retaliated by abruptly canceling Crenshaw’s upcoming interview on their network.
Crenshaw said Fox canceled a pre-scheduled interview allegedly over their feelings being hurt following his attacks against Watters.
“LMFAO, Fox just cancelled an interview we had pre-scheduled tonight,” Crenshaw wrote on his Instagram story. “Guess I hurt their feelings by calling out their bullshit.”
A source familiar with the matter told the Daily Caller that Crenshaw was booked for Fox Business, but not any Fox News programs.
Crenshaw said he invested $10,000 into stocks and never made more than $20,000 while serving in Congress. He accused Fox News of creating a “fake controversy to get clicks” and Watters of pushing conspiracy theories.
“Hey you fucking 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 fucking clown, desperate for clickbait,” Crenshaw began in his Instagram story “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. Wake up America. The political entertainment industry is almost always lying to you.”
