Watters: FL Sheriff's Deputies Were Either 'Cowards or Had the Wrong Protocol'
Jesse Watters ripped Broward County, Fla. Sheriff Scott Israel for praising himself and his department's handling of the Parkland school shooting.
Israel, a Democrat, claimed to CNN that he exhibited "amazing leadership" in the aftermath of the tragedy.
Anchor Jake Tapper challenged him on the contention, and the two discussed how Israel's deputy assigned to the school failed to enter the building during the massacre.
Watters said the way Israel credited himself was on par with what Hillary Clinton may have sounded like if she praised herself after the 2012 Benghazi terror attack.
"He sounds like your typical politician," Watters said, noting Israel switched parties to run for sheriff.
Watters added that Israel was once accused of running his office as "a patronage mill" and that he compared himself to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and President Abraham Lincoln.
"Now he's running a [public relations] campaign," Watters said, additionally criticizing the sheriff for attacking National Rifle Association spokeswoman Dana Loesch at a recent town hall.
"He's more concerned about bashing the NRA than solving the school safety issue," Watters said.
