You know it’s bad when even Fox’s Geraldo Rivera admits that Pres. Donald Trump tried to pull a quid pro quo with Ukraine.
On Siriu8s XM’s The Dan Abrams Show, Rivera told Mediaite founder Don Abrams the truth about what he really thinks. Abrams asked Rivera a question that Rivera couldn’t back out of.
“[…] even if impeachment sucks, can you agree that of course he was withholding the aid and the White House visit?”
Geraldo didn’t hesitate in his response.
“Probably, probably,” he said.
But Rivera seems to think it’s all part of the game.
“When you look at how foreign policy is made, how foreign aid is distributed and dispensed if you don’t think there’s this kind of backroom wrangling almost every time with Israel with Albania or Australia, of course, there is,” he admitted.
He also admitted that acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney spoke the truth.
“Mick Mulvaney in that rare moment, spoke the truth,” he said.
Rivera is referring to Mick Mulvaney’s now-infamous presser, in which he admitted that Trump did a quid pro quo and suggested we all just “get over it.”
However, it’s not Trump’s fault. Nothing is EVER Trump’s fault, right?
“What’s different here is the president is surrounded by snitches and backstabbers and rats and snakes, and everything he does is construed in the most evil way possible by people who are in the business of bringing him down,” he said.
Rivera is right about something else in his statements here. We are in the business of bringing him down and we’ll keep doing everything we can to achieve that end.
