Fox host Jesse Watters invited sex offender and former Democratic congressman Anthony Weiner to his show to defend President Joe Biden, the conservative commentator said Bidens only way out of impeachment is resignation.
Weiner, a former U.S. representative and convicted sex offender who now hosts a talk show with former New York mayoral candidate Curtis Sliwa, debated Biden’s presidency with Watters.
“I think Joe Biden is not a great spokesman for anything,” Weiner said. “He’s old, period. However, he’s going to be running against a man who literally tried to overturn the election, who’s probably going to end up in court or indicted or in prison… it’s a choice and I think most Americans will if it comes to that a rematch is coming. Vote for Joe Biden.’
The discussion came after Watters discussed the possible impeachment of Biden over his connection to his son Hunter’s business dealings. On Tuesday, House Speaker Kevin McCarthy announced a formal impeachment inquiry into the president.
That led Watters to suggest that Biden might resign by the end of the year to avoid the embarrassment of impeachment.

While Weiner — whose sexting with a 15-year-old girl led to a sex offender conviction — admitted “I have issues with Joe Biden,” he believes the election is a binary decision between him and Trump.
“The Democratic Party is a mess, they have mismanaged our money, our border and our roads.” “Most Democrats won’t defend their performance on our show, but one brave Democrat did, and we believe in second chances.” said Watters.
Watters made several references to Weiner’s offenses during the interview, including when Weiner joked that he sometimes “went to bed” during Watters’ show.
“Don’t talk about the bed and my show, Anthony, you have a long track record.”
The host also made fun of Weiner when introducing him, but praised him for his willingness to appear on the conservative network. When talking about Biden, Weiner admitted that he doesn’t like the current president.
Weiner then confessed that Biden “doesn’t like me either,” which prompted a bizarre response: “A lot of people don’t like you…except me. ‘I love you, Weiner.’
Weiner gave Watters mutual praise, calling him “a natural” and congratulating him on taking over the 8 p.m. time slot after Tucker Carlson was fired from the network.
The duo also discussed transgender issues in schools, the crime wave in Democratic-run cities and immigration reform.

Earlier in the show, Watters was heavily critical of President Joe Biden and believed he was facing impeachment after House Republicans launched an investigation on Tuesday.
“Joe Biden’s legacy, his presidency and his family’s freedom and fortune are at stake,” Watters claimed.
Watters believes the information the investigation uncovers — including his bank accounts and his “family spider web of shells” — will leave the president with only three options.
“First, Biden is stepping down by the end of the year,” Watters said. “Second, Biden and the Democrats are feuding with the House, continuing the cover-up and further exposing the President, forcing the House to move to formal impeachment with months of televised hearings.”
He acknowledged that another option might be more positive for Democrats: “Third, the impeachment inquiry remains an investigation and is dragging on, making Republicans look weak and stupid.”

Weiner resigned as a congressman after a series of sexting scandals
Weiner had shocked the world with his constant sexting scandals. A photo he shared showed his crotch while lying next to his sleeping, then four-year-old son
A decade ago, Wiener initially attributed his infamous photos to a hacker attack before admitting to sending the image, and after running for mayor of New York City in 2013, Weiner admitted sharing illegal photos with at least three women to have.
Many were shocked – including his ex-wife, former Hilary Clinton adviser Huma Abedin – to see that the messages he sent to other women included a picture of his crotch while lying next to his sleeping, son who was four years old at the time.
Then in 2016, a 15-year-old girl told DailyMail.com that Weiner had been sending her sexually explicit messages for months.
Federal investigators confirmed that he sexted the minor and watched her undress via Skype and Snapchat, leading to a 21-month prison sentence in 2017.
The story of Weiner’s downfall was widely covered in the media, so many were quick to recall his story when advising him to stay away from Twitter.
Abedin served as Clinton’s deputy adviser for several years before taking on the role of personal adviser during her U.S. Senate campaign in 2000.
She was Clinton’s close personal adviser – valued for her insights on the Middle East – until her failed presidential bid in 2016.
Abedin began dating Weiner – then a congressman – in 2007. The couple married in 2010 and their son Jordan was born the next year.
They announced their plans to split from Weiner in 2016 after years of embarrassing and criminal sexual scandals. They are reportedly still finalizing their divorce.
The Many Misdeeds of Anthony Weiner
May 2011 – A Democratic congressman from New York, Weiner was caught sending a sexually explicit photo of himself to a woman who followed him on his public Twitter account.
Weiner initially denied sending the photo for several days, but later held a press conference in which he admitted sending it and others to “approximately” six women over the past three years.
June 2011 – Another explicit photo of Weiner is leaked, leading to his resignation from Congress at the end of June.
July 2013 – When Weiner returned to politics while running for mayor of New York City, he was caught sending explicit photos to 22-year-old Sydney Leatherse under the name Carlos Danger.
Weiner admitted to sending photos again to at least three women in 2012. Despite calls for him to drop out of the mayoral race, he held a news conference with Abedin at his side where he announced his plans to stay.
He lost the election, receiving only 4.9% of the vote.
August 2016 – The New York Post reports that Weiner had been sexting another woman, this time sending an explicit photo of himself while his young son lay on the bed next to him. Weiner and Abedin announced their plans to separate the next day.
September 2016 – Weiner is accused of sexting a 15-year-old girl and his electronic devices – including his laptop – are being seized as part of an investigation into the matter.
On his laptop were documents related to the Hillary Clinton email scandal. Spurned by the discovery of these documents, FBI Director James Comey decided to reopen the investigation into the Clinton email scandal eleven days before the 2016 presidential election. Clinton said Comey’s decision was one of the reasons she lost the election to Donald Trump.
May 2017 – Weiner turns himself in to the FBI and agrees to plead guilty to a charge of distributing obscene material to a minor.
September 2017 – Weiner is sentenced to 21 months in prison, with three years of post-release supervision
November 2017 – Weiner begins his prison sentence
February 2017 – Weiner is released from prison three months early for good behavior and placed in a halfway house in the Bronx
May 2019 – Weiner is released from the halfway house.
Weiner must register as a sex offender for the rest of his life.
