Fox News host reads texts from his liberal Mom that hilariously shame him.

You’ve got to hand it to Fox News Channel host Jesse Watters. The 40-year-old conservative commentator still knows the value of listening to his mom, even when she’s lecturing him about his misguided political views.

And regardless of where you fall on the political spectrum, watching Watters read these text messages on-air to millions of viewers is pure delight.

The unabashed “Trumpet,” as his own mother calls him, read the texts as part of a seemingly ongoing series of “Mom Texts” his mother, Anne Watters, sends to the “The Five” co-host.


The first "Mom Text" he read got right to the point about Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

“Manafort is a criminal,” she wrote in reference to Trump’s former campaign manager Paul Manafort.

"Short and sweet, Mom," Watters replied.

But she was far from done. In addition to offering support for the special counsel, she pointed out her son’s distinct lack of qualifications on the matter, texting:

"You do not have the expertise nor the knowledge to question the special counsel's investigation until you know what they know. Hush Jesse.”

In reference to President Trump's struggles to replace outgoing Chief of Staff John Kelly, Watters shared the following motherly text message advice:

“DO NOT accept an offer to be Chief of Staff.”

On the one hand, you've really got to hand it to Jesse Watters for at least having the sense of humor to take a self-deprecating approach to his political views. A lack of self-awareness is something most talking heads on the left and right are guilty of. Even Waters' Fox News employers were getting in on the fun.

But it may be his mom's final text that sums up the challenge he and many of his cohorts face at Fox News these days.

“You end up presenting as lacking a moral compass honey,” she wrote. “We all know you are a Trumpet— you need not scream it."

Brittany Kinley, a mother from Mansfield, Texas, had a hilarious mom fail her and she's chalking it up to being just another crazy thing that happened in 2020.

When Kinley filled out the order form for her son Mason's kindergarten class pictures, there was an option to have his name engraved into the photos. But Kinley wasn't interested in having her son's name on the photos so she wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" on the box.

Well, it appears as though she should have left the box blank because the computer or incredibly literal human that designed the photographs wrote "I DON'T WANT THIS" where mason's name should be.

Marcos Alberti's "3 Glasses" project began with a joke and a few drinks with his friends.

The photo project originally depicted Alberti's friends drinking, first immediately after work and then after one, two, and three glasses of wine.

But after Imgur user minabear circulated the story, "3 Glasses" became more than just a joke. In fact, it went viral, garnering more than 1 million views and nearly 1,800 comments in its first week. So Alberti started taking more pictures and not just of his friends.

In December 2018, The Utah Department of Transportation opened the largest wildlife overpass in the state, spanning 320 by 50 feet across all six lanes of Interstate 80.

Its construction was intended to make traveling through the I-80 corridor in Summit County safer for motorists and the local wildlife.

The Salt Lake Tribune reports that there were over 100 animal incidents on the interstate since 2016, giving the stretch of highway the unfortunate nickname of "Slaughter Row."
