Fox News host Jesse Watters responded on Monday to California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D), who accused Watters of “aiding and abetting” the man who attacked Paul Pelosi. Speaking with CBS News correspondent Major Garrett on Saturday, Newsom said Watters is guilty of contributing to the “dehumanization” of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
“Let’s set the record straight: Paul Pelosi got drunk and nearly killed someone with his car, and then the Napa County DA made it go away. We reported that Paul Pelosi got special treatment and mocked him for trying to bribe officers,” Watters explained.
“We had to wait forever to get to the bottom of what happened that night, and there [are] still questions we have,” he continued. “But Gavin Newsom thinks if you mock a Democrat, it puts them on a target list.”
According to Watters, Newsom is in fact guilty of “aiding and abetting” Pelosi’s attacker, who is allegedly living in California illegally.
“If anything, Gavin Newsom has done more to aid and abet this attack on Pelosi than anybody. David DePape is a homeless criminal and an illegal alien. DePape overstayed his visa for years — committed crimes. California is a sanctuary state, so he was never deported,” the Fox News host explained.
“So let me ask you a question: Who is more at fault here? The governor who didn’t deport the deranged drug-addict felon who thinks is he Jesus or the news guy who fairly covered Paul’s DUI case? I think we both know the answer,” he said.

Democrats, including President Joe Biden, and the media are working overtime to connect Republicans to political violence and, in particular, to the Paul Pelosi attack. But as Watters rightly pointed out, Democrats were not blamed when a man went to Brett Kavanaugh’s house allegedly hoping to assassinate him, when Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) was brutally attacked, or when a Bernie Sanders supporter tried to assassinate Republican lawmakers in 2017.
