WATCH: Geraldo Gets Extremely Personal During Argument With Fox News’ Dan Bongino
Geraldo Rivera got into a wildly testy exchange with Fox News’ Dan Bongino on Wednesday night that culminated in Rivera calling Bongino a son of a bitch.
Sean Hannity brought the two men on his show to discuss the recent Daunte Wright shooting. Bongino, a former NYPD officer, defended the shooter’s excuse that she couldn’t tell the difference between a gun and a taser. As the two men debated the issue, the rhetoric became increasingly personal.
“There’s a big difference between reporting on a baseball game and playing it, Geraldo,” said Bongino. “You’ve never worn a badge, period. Not interested in your reporting on it, because reporters deal with facts, and you brought the race card into it the other night when we had this debate, despite having no facts to back that up.”
“I know more than you! What do you know?” Rivera responded. “What, did you have a ten-minute career as a cop? You’ve been running for office for the last 20 years.”
After more back and forth, Bongino argued, “If there was a plague of police officers hunting Black men down at night, then — I don’t understand, if that’s happening, where is the massive body count?” The Fox personality then accused Rivera of “wanting to see the country burn.”
Geraldo exploded, “I want to see the country burn?! You son of a bitch! I want to see the country burn, you punk?! You’re nothing but a punk!”
