Geraldo Rivera Threatens Violence Against ‘Rotten Snitch’ Whistleblower
Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera on Sunday came out swinging for Team Trump, portraying the fraudulent president as the big victim of the scandal of his own making and validating his wish to execute the whistleblower.
During his fervent defense of Trump, Rivera went on to suggest that he’d like to put up his dukes and implied that Trump is somehow not supposed to act like a president by suggesting that Trump’s damning phone call to Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky was just normal “braggadocio” from a real estate magnate.
“You know, ‘Hey, we do this, and by the way, you do that,’” Rivera said. “I can just see him in the stream of consciousness. ‘Hey, Zel, what’s up, buddy?’”
Later, Rivera acknowledged the Ukraine scandal is problematic for Trump. “At the very least, he’s got to explain in a very lucid and a comprehensive way what, exactly, he meant,” Rivera said. He was referring to Trump’s request for “a favor” from Zelensky immediately after he asked for military aid which Trump was blocking.
But Rivera also suggested that Trump’s concern about “corruption” was not an attempt to get dirt on his political opponents (as is pretty darned obvious to anyone not in the tank for Trump) but a concern about corruption in Ukraine. “Was the money used to buy weapons or was the money used to line the pockets of the corrupt people that the president is complaining about?” Rivera “asked.”
He later added: “So it’s going to be the president of the United States in a conversation that was intercepted by a rotten snitch — I’d love to wap him, but that’s another story. Imagine this poor president, his whole tenure in office has been marked by snitches, and rats, and backstabbers, and it’s amazing how he functions at all.
