Fox News host Jesse Watters faced widespread backlash after making unusual comments about Ivanka Trump on Tuesday.
Watters said he "really liked how [Trump] was speaking into that microphone," later clarifying that he thought her voice "resonates like a smooth jazz radio DJ."
Many critics took the comment as a sexual innuendo. Despite his attempts to clarify, Watters announced a two-day vacation on his Wednesday night show, Fortune reported.
