Gutfeld Guts Geraldo Rivera Over Tucker Bashing – Take a Look
Fox News host Greg Gutfeld gave a blistering single-tweet response on Wednesday to once upon a time media darling Geraldo Rivera.
Rivera, for some unknown reason, thought it was a good time to lash out at Tucker Carlson. He launched into a jealous fit at the former ratings king of Fox News:
“I don’t wish ill on anybody, but there is no doubt-as I said at the time-Tucker Carlson’s perverse January 6 conspiracy theory was “bullshit.”
Having lost the election President Trump incited an insurrection that sought to undermine our Constitutional process.”
Gutfeld, who sometimes works with Rivera on “The Five,” did not hold back. He has a record of reducing Geraldo to a puddle of nothingness, and this time all he needed was a one liner on Twitter.
“You’re a class act Geraldo. A real man of the people,” Gutfeld wrote.
Wow…that hit the target.
Rivera has long since hit his prime. He started his “journalism” career as a reporter for WABC-TV in New York City in 1970. He has thought of himself as an “everyman’s reporter,” but that might have been then and surely isn’t now.
His takes on the news are not the radical left, but they are nonetheless often infuriating and often unprofessional.
Tucker Carlson did present the January riot on the Capitol in a way that often looked like a leisurely stroll through the building by QAnon “shaman” Jacob Chansley and others. And he did show Capitol guards as more-than-willing “tour guides.” But the left played it like an insurrection.
Gutfeld and Rivera went after each other on the abortion issue as well. Gut said this about how the pro-choice side promote abortion:
“That was the argument you always heard. But now when you go anywhere on social media, it’s something to celebrate, to cherish,” Gutfeld claimed.
“That’s baloney,” interjected Rivera, who, after another tense exchange, called Gutfeld an “insulting punk.”
“Oh what, am I your new Bongino?” Gutfeld responded with a laugh, referring to Rivera’s frequent on-air spats

“If you want that role,” Rivera replied.
