In what seems like an abrupt decision, Fox News host Jesse Watters is taking vacation, which reports say might have something to do with his lewd joke about presidential daughter Ivanka Trump.

Ivanka Trump recently appeared at the W20 Women's Entrepreneurship Summit in Berlin where she received boos and hisses when she defended her father, President Donald Trump, regarding his support for women and families. She was asked about the President's attitude towards women. She said that his father is a champion when it comes to supporting families and helping them thrive, which the audience apparently does not agree with. She later brushed off the audience's reaction, considering them "politics."

In a segment of "The Five" last Tuesday, Watters commented on the topic, leaning towards Ivanka's defense and saying how the left doesn't seem to demonstrate their respect to women in this kind of situation.

Instead, they boo and hiss. "So I don't really get what's going on here, but I really liked how she was speaking into that microphone," he added, per Business Insider.

Viewers perceived Watters' remarks as lewd

Social media criticisms were prompted by Watters' non-verbal gestures after he made the remark, smirked, and then held an invisible mic in front of his mouth, suggesting it was something sexual, per NY Daily News. The following day, CNN reported the Jesse Watters will be on a vacation and would miss two days of his first week in "The Five."

Watters denied accusations

On one hand, Watters denied that his comment is lewd, saying it's not a joke suggesting anything sexual. He said on Twitter that his comments were in reference to Ivanka's voice and how it sounds like that of a jazz radio DJ.

Jesse Watters announced on the next night's segment that he will be taking a trip with his family. He will be back on Monday, though. Whether his leave has something to do with his comments about Ivanka Trump was not made clear.

Watters became known because of his "Watters World" segment on "The O'Reilly Factor." Watters just became a permanent co-host of "The Five" in its new 9 p.m. time slot after Fox decided to end ties with Bill O'Reilly. O'Reilly, Watters' mentor, was fired amid harassment allegations, ending his two-decade career with Fox News.
