Does Geraldo Rivera need a vacation? He seems to keep snapping on the air.
In the most recent instance, he was having a back and forth with conservative commentator Dan Bongino about the situation in Minnesota when they got into a debate and Bongino suggested that injecting race into the situation is making it worse.
Rivera lost his composure and let the anger fly.
The Washington Examiner has details:
Geraldo Rivera calls Dan Bongino a ‘punk’ in heated exchange about Minnesota unrest
Journalist Geraldo Rivera called conservative commentator Dan Bongino a “son of a b—-” and a “punk” on live TV following a heated altercation about race and the riots that have followed the fatal police shooting of Daunte Wright.
“You just want to see the country burn,” Bongino told Rivera on a segment on Sean Hannity’s show on Wednesday.
“I want to see the country burn, you son of a b—-?,” Rivera responded. “I want to see the country burn, you punk? You’re nothing but a punk. You’re a punk, Bongino. You’re a punk.”
Bongino answered: “Tell me that to my face.”
The spat began after Bongino insisted that Rivera had “no data” to back up his assertions of racial disparities in policing and that law enforcement does not have a bias problem.

Hey Geraldo, 75% of the people that are killed in interactions with the police are not black. We never hear about those 75%.

Why on earth does @hannity continue booking @GeraldoRivera ?? He’s so unbelievable biased and NOBODY can have another point of view or he acts like a typical volatile liberal… I stopped watching #Hannity when @FoxNews helped secure the 11/3 steal..

Geraldo clearly needs a weekend getaway to clear his head.
