Jesse Watters, the man who couldn't stop being a rank misogynist if his job depended on it was at it again last night in a "Watters' World" segment about traffic in New York City.

After reciting the typical litany of complaints against Democrats like Mayor Bill de Blasio -- who is at fault for most, but not all, of the evils in the world -- Watters turned to an old standby to account for why people believe that traffic is more congested of late.


"This is what happens when you let women drive," Watters said, most likely because his producers thought his comments about Asian drivers were too edgy.
