Fox’s Jesse Watters Says He’s ‘Tired and Bored’ of AOC, Proceeds to Talk at Length About Her

Fox’s Jesse Watters Says He’s ‘Tired and Bored’ of AOC, Proceeds to Talk at Length About HerFox News host Jesse Watters on Wednesday insisted that he is getting “kind of tired and bored” with one of the conservative network’s favorite targets: Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY). Of course, he then proceeded to go on a minute-long rant against her.On noon-time gabfest Outnumbered, co-host Lisa Boothe led off a discussion of Ocasio-Cortez’s recent tour of border detention facilities, noting that the outspoken progressive lawmaker recently said the U.S. is heading to fascism and alleged the rampant abuse of migrants at the hands of detention center guards.“This is what frustrates me about politicians like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Boothe grumbled, turning to Watters. “They run their mouth, but she voted against funding for the humanitarian condition. If she cares, why did she vote against that funding?”Watters, serving as the female-hosted show’s “One Lucky Guy,” called on AOC to “put your money where your mouth is” while claiming she is “running out of hand grenades at this point.” “I’m kind of tired and bored of her,” the right-wing pundit asserted.This, of course, would be news to anyone who semi-regularly watches Fox. Back in April, liberal media watchdog Media Matters for America found that during a six-week period, Fox News and Fox Business Network talked about Ocasio-Cortez every single day and mentioned her name 3,181 times. Watters, who hosts both The Five and weekend show Watters’ World, was one of the key contributors to that obsessive coverage.And so, immediately after declaring his boredom with the congresswoman on Wednesday, Watters delivered a lengthy anti-AOC tirade.“She calls everybody Nazis and starts screaming at the Border Patrol agents, yet refuses to actually tour the facility,” he yelled. “Speaks to someone, mischaracterized the drinking water comment, and then comes out and creates this huge controversy.”Ocasio-Cortez, however, wasn’t the only lawmaker who was told by detained migrants that guards told them to drink from the toilet. And a recently released report from the Department of Homeland Security’s inspector general found that squalid conditions and overcrowding at detention camps are widespread and worse than initially revealed by the Trump administration. Read more at The Daily Beast.Got a tip?

Collector who bought Jesse James picture for just £7 on eBay told it could be worth £2 million

Collector who bought Jesse James picture for just £7 on eBay told it could be worth £2 millionA collector has hit the jackpot after being told that an old photograph he picked up on eBay for just £7 was a genuine portrait of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James, worth up to £2 million. Justin Whiting, 45, bought the photograph in July 2017 and immediately tracked down Will Dunniway, a 19th century photography expert from California. He was astonished when forensic experts confirmed his picture of infamous Wild West outlaw Jesse James was genuine and could sell for six figures. Single Justin, from Spalding, Lincs., said: "Anything is possible on eBay so I kept buying the odd photograph for a few quid, like other people would buy a lottery ticket. "I noticed the picture for sale – it was ten dollars. It was a bit blurry on the site but when I got it, it was a lot clearer. "I thought to myself: 'Gee wizz, this could be a real photo!' I've been obsessed with American outlaws for years and read lots of books and study their faces.

All my friends said it was the same but I knew I needed to contact experts. "I didn't dare to believe they would say it was genuine and worth at least two million." Expert Mr Dunniway confirmed the photograph was a genuine portrait of bank robber Jesse taken when the babyfaced outlaw was just 14. His report said: "The age of this image was about 1861-2 and is correct in every way to this period. "When it is compared to the much used comparison image I believe it was taken on the same day by the same photographer. "It is very evident by the face, hair cut, jacket, shirt and tie that this is the same image of Jesse James at 14 years old. One of the originals." The eBay listing from which Justin Whiting picked up an old photo  Credit: Justin Whiting / SWNS.com Justin then sent the 3.5 inches by 2.5 inches Victorian tintype photograph to Los Angeles forensic expert Kent Gibson who has verified evidence for the FBI. Mr Gibson confirmed the image was authentic and said: "All power to Justin. An authentic photograph of outlaw Billy the Kid sold for $ 5million in 2015 so the sky's the limit. "Jesse James is a very famous outlaw so this is obviously a valuable image." Justin, who has been out of work since 2003 due to back problems, has already been in touch with posh London auction house Christie's and is looking forward to spending his windfall. He said: "I'm definitely selling it. I'll be able to buy my own house and my own car. I can't wait. Good things do happen sometimes." Jesse may have robbed a few banks in his time, but Justin isn't taking any chances with his haul. He said: "I'm being super careful. That photograph is the most valuable thing I've ever had in my possession. It's staying in my friend's safe for now."
