Fox News Star Hops Off the Trump Train

It’s official: Geraldo Rivera has concluded that Donald Trump is a racist.

If the reporter-turned cable news star has left the president for good, it’s unclear how much longer Fox’s viewers will put up with him. (Hot Air)
 

For some who defended Mr. Trump against charges of racism in the past, this was a turning point. “As much as I have denied it and averted my eyes from it, this latest incident made it impossible,” Geraldo Rivera, a roaming correspondent at large for Fox News and longtime friend, said in an interview.

“My friendship with the president has cost me friendships, it has cost me schisms in the family, my wife and I are constantly at odds about the president,” he added. “I do insist that he’s been treated unfairly. But the unmistakable words, the literal words he said, is an indication that the critics were much more right than I.”

Rivera isn’t the only former Trump confidant to accuse the president of racism this week:

I get so tired of racist this and that, because the word is so over used it has become meaningless. If a black says something derogatory about a white it is not racist, but if a white says ANYTHING derogatory about a black it IS racist. The devil with political correctness. I will speak my mind and if someone doesn’t like it, tough.

Call it what you want, but; what Pres. Trump is saying, if you are an American – be an American and all that that means…Period.!, NOT a hyphenated American like African-American, Chinese-American, Mexican-American and so on. If you don’t like America as it is and want it to be more like where you came from, go back to where you cam from. There’s nothing racist about that and if there is – tough.

i’m with you. it’s sickening how unfair all of this is. we ALL EARN OUR REPUTATIONS, and if i don’t like ANYONE’S behavior such as VIOLENCE or any kind, THAT is what i never forget. it seems that any race other than white can cut out heads off, ruin our property, push down elderly, and it’s ok. if not liking UNcivilized behavior, than I AM RACIST TOO. i love our country as does OUR PRESIDENT. and there is so much evil against ‘we the people’ and this President, while obama GAVE OUR COUNTRY AWAY and no one said a word. amazing how evil prevails because of the POWER OF MONEY accompanied by evil agenda. it’s all BS.

Geraldo Rivera has always been an opportunist wishy-washy reporter. He has also been a GRAND STANDER when over seas reporting the news. He has posed next to tanks and other war scenes trying to manipulate the picture to look like he was “in the shit” as we used to say in Vietnam. Well, he wasn’t. He crawled around in an Afghan cave in 2002 holding a .45 Caliber pistol with Hollywood mud smears (when an actor smears dirt or blood on parts of their face to APPEAR like they were dirty, bloody and sweaty, with two-finger streaks here and there). In the cave he tried to sound macho stating “I’m gonna personally shoot that sonofabitch (Bin Laden). He’s supposed to be a news reporter, not in a battle like Joe Galloway, a real fighting reporter (battle of LZ Xray, Ia Drang, Vietnam), who fought for his life.
Rivera has a long history as a ‘bull shitter’! He changes sides and opinions like a flag blowing in different directions.

Don’t like or trust the man, never have.
Rivera, the rat man chameleon isn’t disagreeing, he is calling, branding, declaring President Trump is a RACIST with out cause.
I guess the big man had to make his wife, family AND FRIENDS HAPPY by “throwing President Trump under the bus” !!!
Apparently he cares more about himself than the Country the President is working his “ass” off for.

actually I as a Trump supporter, after I left the democrat party, never saw Geraldo as someone who was on the Trump train, Geraldo has always been a democrat. Funny how Trump had never been a racist until that day he came down the escalator and announced he was running. Trump hired more minority then anyone in NY. Trump sued a country club in FL when they were discriminating against blacks and jews. Jesse Jackson awarded Trump for his work in the Rainbow coalition. I could go on but it is a waste of time democrats will hate, lie and do anything to make this President look bad. Geraldo hasn’t changed a bit he was always an ass.

Rivera is a piece of shit! I remember when he had a TV show. On one show I saw him piss someone off and this person broke Rivera’s damn nose. Boy, is he Macho? He is certainly a flip flop. He is an opportunist. Certainly not a good reporter. If I am watching a Fox program and Rivera or Juan Williams comes on, I turn the channel.

Rivera and Williams are of the communist belief,in my book. Get rid of them. They and Judge Napolitano are always defending the hard left. Napolitano is defending Schumer for threating to destroy or kill our two new justices of the supreme court. Neil Cavuto is one of these that needs to go. We got rid of Shepard Smith, and that is s just the beginning of the house cleaning. When these are on, I change channels. Fox News has gone to H+++ in a handbasket. CLEAN HOUSE! ,

It is a shame that our President who is protecting American lives is constantly called a racist … as are people that voted for him .. President Trump is a god fearing patriot that loves our country .. believes in our country and will fight for our country .. who care what a grandstanding reporter thinks .. what has he ever done to Make America Great .. he is overpaid and under educated on the issues and is trying to remain relevant in a world that more important things to worry about then him .. God bless America and our President

How can you be so uninformed? He’s not a patriot, he’s a draft-dodger; he doesn’t love the country, he loves making money and he loves flattery. He defrauded the people of this country by setting up a fake University, for which he got sued and had to pay out 25 million dollars in damages. He misused his charity, the Trump Foundation, for his own ends. He’s a con artist and a liar. He hires illegals to work on his properties. His clothing line is made in China, not here. He’s a big phony and if it weren’t for Fox News and Rush Limbaugh sugar-coating everything he does, you would know that too.

Sounds like the kettle…….
First of all, I have problems with someone whose vested interest is in getting people to believe we need them for our well being, NO MATTER WHICH SIDE OF THE AISLE. The technical term for that is codependence, and is a serious problem.
Second, i do not care where his clothing line comes from until we go to war wearing TRUMP suits. I think our drug sourcing is a bit more important.
Third, what are your sources for the allegations? They are completely new to me. Somehow, I think the democrats would have weaved the allegations into the coup attempt if they could have.
Fourth, being a phony is what politicians do.
Fifth, any possible misuse of a charity pales in comparison to what that family from Arkansas has pulled off.
Sixth, so Rush and FOX control the entire news media, and are so powerful that there is never any news contrary to what Rush and FOX report. Otherwise, Annie would have known what you were talking about.
Seventh, So CNN and those other guys don’t do the same thing? Or do they use a different sugar?

I do the same thing! Faithfully watch Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity every night and then turn to OANN. Fox News must not be able to stand success. Guess they can’t wait until Fox News becomes another CNN or MSNBC. We surely don’t need Geraldo who is so full of himself nor Juan Williams who was let go by NPR because he was too moderate, and then gets hired by Fox and he becomes a radical leftist. I don’t need to see Donna Brazile, nor Napolitano, nor Cavuto.

Harris Faulkner is one of my favorites. She is intelligent, composed and handles lefties very well. I think that her experiences being raised as the daughter of an Army Colonel broadened her world view and made her more understanding of other people. I was raised by an Air Force Father myself.

I don’t like him and never did. It seems that most shows he gets involved in are very weak and fail. How has he made so much money? Williams gives a good in site into how a liberal thinks. Most of the time I would like to punch his arrogant nose. But they both are a good study.

Rivera seems to be always changing courses. I think he does it to get attention. I don’t listen to him because I don’t think he is a real friend to anyone. I would like to know exactly what he said during that gym conversation years ago. I noticed that not one of the so called buddies said a word about their side of the men’s talk in the gym.

His name is Gerry Rivers. his name was remade just like he was. he is a storybook reporter that stands with the side that will give him the most time in front of a camera. we have many of these. Judge Nap. is also an opertunist. a pity because he is knowledgeable in our constitution. he turned against the president when he didn’t get the job the thought he should have. to see one switch sides shows us all what their true value is worth. —–Grampa

Geraldo Rivera has played both sides of the coin, and it was only a matter of time when he couldn’t lie anymore. Hannity is as good as they come, but he couldn’t even talk to Rivera when he went off in one of his tantrums. Despite that, I appreciated his hard work as a reporter.

TO DRAG FOX DOWN TO DEMOCRAT AGENDAS HE HAS SEEDED CONTROL TO HIS SON,LACHLAN, “LACKLUSTER” MURDOCK, A STONE LEFTY! THEY HIRE, GIVE EM THE QUESTIONS, STAUNCH DEMOCRAT, DONNA BRAZIL. GAG ME WITH A SPOON! THEY KEEP , “I CAN’T SEE ANYTHING BUT A DEMOCRAT VIEW POINT” WHOANNN WILLIAMS! THE ONLY GOOD TURN WAS GETTING RID OF SHEEPHERDER SMIFF! THEY HAVE A FEW STARS LEFT, BUT BASICALLY, THEY ARE THE NEW, “PC” SINKING SHIP!

President Trump is not racust. If anyone was racist it was Obama who was racist. Truly born in Kenya, Obama was an Illegitimate USA President. The demoncRats covered that up. However, the interview with his grandmother who stayed she witnessed his birth and never left Kenya is no longer acsilable. All truth is deleted. Rivera is part of the media. He was never in favor of President Trump. Rivera lies just as his co-workers do. More people are waking up to the lying media and don’t believe one word they say. Wise Patriots gave learned to research. And, for the record, Hillary’s father was head of the Chicago-Detroit mob after Al Capone. Is the mob protecting Her-? Are they responsible for the murders of those who cross Her-??? Michelle Obama was truly born Michael Lavaugn Robinson. Hhmmm … I don’t give a hoot she’s transgender but millions of Americans will if they knew facts. And, they don’t know facts because the media protects and praises those in the demoncRat party. And, you, the media, expect us, We the People, to believe what you say. No thank You-!!!!
