“FOX & Friends” took on a WWF feel this week when FOX News correspondent Geraldo Rivera said that he would like to give a beating to the whistleblower behind the Ukrainian story: “I would love to wap him, but that is another story.” Silly Wabbit, beat downs are for kids.
Geraldo captures the widening and unsettling divide in this country in his take on the controversy:
GERALDO RIVERA (FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT): After listening to the Democrats, they believe that they have it now.
That everything else, Russia collusion, Stormy Daniels, taxes, making money on hotels, and all that. They are going to put everything away and they are going to laser focus on this. This is gonna be what the impeachment is all about, maybe one or two little other things fall in.
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, it’s amazing how he functions at all.
Notably, Trump’s acting National Intelligence Director testified that he believed that the whistleblower did the right thing. Not a beat down or “wapping” mentioned.
