Fox News host Jesse Watters voices his concerns over the toxic chemical spill following an Ohio train derailment on “Jesse Watters Primetime.”

It’s like these people just got nuked with toxins and right now, as we speak, Palestine residents are showing up to a town hall where they were supposed to get the chance to confront the people responsible, the company that let a train full of chemicals fly off the rails and then lit it on fire, but the CEO of Norfolk Southern — Alan Shaw — just decided to back out of the meeting.

Is it because they line the pocket of every politician in Ohio? Probably. Maybe Norfolk Southern didn’t have the spine to face their victims.
