The one-hour show debuted on July 11, 2011, and is broadcast live on weekdays at 5 p.m. ET (unless breaking news interrupts). Watters made an on-air comment about Ivanka Trump that was deemed lewd just two days after joining The Five.
Watters commented, “So I don’t get what’s going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone,” as he parodied holding the microphone as a phallic symbol after watching footage of Trump speaking on a panel about female entrepreneurship.
Watters denied his remark was sexual in a statement, saying, “During the break, we were commenting on Ivanka’s voice and how it was low and steady and resonated like a smooth jazz radio DJ… This was in no way a sarcastic remark about anything else. Watters did not appear on the show for two days that week in response to the criticism.
