Fox News star Jesse Watters has scolded Hollywood star Wanda Sykes after the comedian trashed middle America on CBS’s “The Late Show” with Stephen Colbert.
Watters reminded Sykes who does the heavy lifting in this country before calling California “a disaster.”
Sykes, upset with the recent Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe v Wade, said:
“It’s no longer majority rule. It’s like the country is no longer a democracy, right?
“It’s no longer majority rule.
“The problem is that middle stuff, it’s those states in the middle, that red stuff.
“Why do they get to tell us what to do, when the majority of us live in New York, California?
“If I’m footing the bill, know your position.
“If I say, ‘Hey, let’s go out to dinner,’ you don’t get to pick the restaurant. Just shut up and eat.”
Enter Jesse Watters who said:
“Know your place, middle America. If you don’t live near the ocean, you’re a second-class citizen.
“Why don’t we educate Wanda on who actually pays for what around here?
“You may think you’re paying for dinner, Sykes, but middle America put that dinner on the table.
“Middle America is also putting the gas in your car that you’re driving to the restaurant, keeping the electricity on at the restaurant, and providing the soldiers that keep that restaurant safe.
“So sit back and enjoy the meal, but realize middle America is what makes America work.
“But to the Left, you’re just a basket of deplorables whose opinions on anything don’t matter, especially Roe v. Wade.
“They want you to just shut up and follow the people who destroyed California.
“If California is so rich and evolved, why is that state such a disaster?
“And why would the rest of the country want to copy California?
“Do you think middle America looks up to California?
“Do you think you’re impressing us with your filthy streets, high crime and weird schools?” he said.
