Fox host rages at Joe Biden for eating ice cream: “I don’t think it’s manly!”

Fox host Jesse Watters – the person who took Fox’s top primetime slot after Tucker Carlson was fired last year – went on a rant about President Joe Biden eating ice cream in public, which is apparently something a real manly man would never do.

“This ice cream,” Watters said. “It’s just not a good look.”

“You should save that for vacation A grown man – especially the president – should not be licking ice cream in public.”

Biden was eating ice cream with late-night show host Seth Meyers while reporters shouted questions at him. Biden appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers later.

Watters then claimed that eating ice cream in public could cost Biden votes in November.

“If I were Biden and I was losing to Trump my party wanted to put me out to pasture and swap me out for a younger, better-looking liberal, the Mideast and Europe are at war, and migrants are murdering our women, the last thing I would do? Go out for ice cream with a comedian and lick it when they ask about the border,” he continued.

Watters then tried to tie it to the Republican party’s message that Biden is too old to be president. Donald Trump is only three years younger than Biden.

“You know who lights up for ice cream? Children and the elderly. There’s a reason caregivers deliver ice cream to their patients in nursing homes. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, ice cream is a favorite for people with diminished faculties.”

Watters also included soup in his rant about things a man shouldn’t do in public, lest one think that he is light in the loafers. In November, Watters ranted about Biden drinking with a straw in public.

“Joe Biden used a straw,” Watters said at the time. “I recommend that all men refrain from using straws. It’s unbecoming, the way a man’s lips purse, the size of the straws is too dainty, the way your fingers clasp on it, no, come on.”

On X, Daily Beast reporter Justin Baragona posted a picture of Watters eating ice cream in public in 2019.

And someone else shared an image of Trump eating ice cream in public.

In the same show, Watters ranted about Biden wearing sunglasses for a joke on Late Night with Seth Meyers.

“I have seen people put their sunglasses on,” Watters said. “I’ve never clapped. I’ve never laughed. What’s so funny about a man putting his sunglasses on?”

“These psychos apparently hate sunglasses and ice cream now,” out Rep. Robert Garcia (D-CA) quipped.

Biden put on sunglasses as part of a bit about conspiracy theories involving him.
