Geraldo Rivera said in an appearance on “Fox & Friends” on Friday morning that it’s tough to see former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani “deteriorate” in live television interviews.
“I’ve known him since he was a newly-appointed U.S. attorney in the Southern District here in New York. Then he became ‘America’s Mayor,’ and we all lived through that trauma with him when he was the most magnificent elected official on earth. To see him kind of deteriorate right before your very eyes — and I love the guy — but I think that this is…,” Rivera said.
Co-host Steve Doocy asked what his Fox News colleague meant. Rivera responded by speaking about Giuliani’s dealings in Ukraine and questioned why he wasn’t appointed as an envoy if he was going overseas to represent President Donald Trump.
“He went to Ukraine to do what as what?” Rivera asked
“We have a lot of people in the audience who are not agreeing with you, Geraldo,” said co-host Ainsley Earhardt.
“I don’t come here for people to agree with me. I come to tell you how I feel from the bottom of my heart and from the bottom of my heart, I feel like Rudy Giuliani has been diminished by this entire saga. I think the more he talks the worse it is for the President of the United States.”
This isn’t the first time Rivera has been questioned on the network in recent weeks. Earlier in January, he and co-host Brian Kilmeade criticized each other while debating the United States’ deadly strike against Iranian’s General Qassem Soleimani with Rivera saying that the strike was an act of unnecessary aggression on the part of the U.S.
