Fox News anchor Jesse Watters appeared disappointed to find out that former Vice President Mike Pence was also in possession of classified documents – mainly because it could force his network to actually be “fair and balanced”.
The network has been milking the recent news that classified documents have been found at President Joe Biden’s Delaware home.
But on Tuesday’s Fox News episode of “The Five,” Watters and other panelists like Greg Gutfeld and Jeanine Pirro appeared concerned that the Pence news might ruin the good time they were having at the president’s expense:
WATTERS: I mean, Pence, seriously. We have this great thing going with Joe…
GUTFELD: Yes, and he just ruined it!
PIRO: He did!
WATTERS: Come on man!
GUTFELD: What do we do now?
Watters seemed disappointed that Pence didn’t engage in criminal behavior by trying to hide the evidence.
“I mean, he could have just destroyed it. We would never have known,” Watters suggested cheekily.
Gutfeld pointed out that Pence’s honesty created another problem for the network.
“And we have to be fair and balanced and show both sides,” he said.
Watters chimed in: “I know. Now we have to show both sides! And you know Pence is so clean. sparkling clean. It’s nothing compared to the really bad documents Joe Biden carted away.”
Gutfeld then wondered if Pence had only reported the documents so people would not forget him.
“Do you think he just wanted to be included?” he asked rhetorically.
“He’s like, ‘Hey, I’m running for president too. examine me! I was looking at secret stuff!’” Watters replied.

Twitter users were quick to point out Watters’ apparent hypocrisy.
