Fox News host Jesse Watters said Friday that the media miscalculated how former President Donald Trump’s mugshot would impact people.

The Fulton County Sheriff’s Office released Trump’s mugshot Thursday night. Trump turned himself in at the Fulton County Jail to be booked after a grand jury handed down indictments Aug. 14, charging Trump and other associates, including former Republican Mayor Rudy Giuliani of New York City and attorneys Jenna Ellis, John Eastman and Sidney Powell.

“The media is worried they’ve created a monster and understand how powerful imagery is and traffic imagery for a living and can feel the power of that picture. They can’t control it. It’s not what they thought it would be,” Watters said. “No matter what they say about it, you can’t lie to voters about a photograph. You don’t need the media to interpret a photograph for you. They’ve lost their grip on the story and handed Donald Trump a political gift that’ll last a lifetime.”

George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley called the mugshot of former President Donald Trump a “trophy moment” for Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis during a Thursday evening Fox News appearance.

“Now Donald Trump is being seen as a martyr and Donald Trump before running for president was seen as a popular icon in black communities,” Watters said. “The streets are talking about them in a way they’ve never talked about him before. Democrats thought the mug shot was going to be the end for Trump. But it may be the start. A new beginning.”

IMPORTANT NOTE TO WND READERS: Today’s ruling elites champion policies every previous generation of Americans would have regarded as outright evil. At the top of that list would be the supremely radioactive issue – illuminated by the hit summer film “Sound of Freedom” – of the widespread trafficking and sexual slavery of children, as well as the shocking prevalence of pedophiles in the United States of America. Indeed, the U.S. is the largest market for child sexual abuse in the world.

According to Tim Ballard, who has led many missions rescuing sex-trafficked children around the world, the Biden administration actually ENABLES AND PROMOTES the trafficking and sexual slavery of children with its horrendous border policies, its push for early sexualization of children, championing children’s “right to consent” on everything including mutilating transgender surgeries, and so on.

“Pedophiles are sitting back right now,” says Ballard, “and going, ‘We’ve been pushing this agenda for decades, and now we don’t have to push any more, because the left is taking care of it for us’ – IN AMERICA!”

Ballard’s concerns are confirmed by Tara Lee Rodas, a Health and Human Services whistleblower who recently testified before Congress that under Joe Biden, “THE U.S. GOVERNMENT HAS BECOME THE MIDDLEMAN IN A LARGE-SCALE, MULTI-BILLION-DOLLAR CHILD TRAFFICKING OPERATION.”

But that’s just the beginning. The whole, secret criminal mega-enterprise of child sex trafficking and the global elites’ affinity for pedophilia is exposed as never before in the August issue of WND’s critically acclaimed monthly Whistleblower magazine, in a groundbreaking issue titled “THE NEW AMERICAN SLAVE TRADE: How the Biden regime enables and promotes child sex trafficking in the U.S.A.” WHISTLEBLOWER is available in both the popular print edition and a state-of-the-art digital version, either single issues or discounted annual subscriptions.
