Former Fox News host Geraldo Rivera attacked Tucker Carlson on Twitter regarding the disturbance at the U.S. Capitol Building on January 6, 2021 and the conflict in Ukraine. Also terminated by the network in late April was Carlson.
Carlson claimed in a podcast interview with comedian and commentator Russell Brand on Friday that he had spoken with Capitol Police chief Steven Sund on the day of the violence, but that Sund had since been fired. He informed Brand that Sund confirmed Carlson’s claims, which he has been making for more than a year, that federal agents were ubiquitous in the January 6 Capitol disturbance crowd.
Carlson praised the former president’s stance on Ukraine, stating that he appears to be the only major political figure in Washington who opposes the conflict and wants it to end.
Rivera reportedly deemed it excessive.
“Due respect to Tucker Carlson, but he’s as full of s**t about Ukraine as he was about January 6th,” he tweeted. “His smiley face doesn’t change fact Russia invaded sovereign Ukraine; 1000’s are dead, including women & children, the world order is assailed and Putin is a punk.”

Multiple Twitter users criticized Rivera’s remarks.
“Geraldo you are wrong about both…. Ukraine and Jan 6th,” @nancylee2016 wrote, adding an insult: “P.S. A mustache is dirtier than a dog’s a**.”
“Look at the man in the mirror Geraldo. America has zero business being involved in this war period. Both countries are corrupt and both leaders are corrupt but heck so is Joe Biden. This crap is going to get Americans and our children laying dead in the streets!” said another.
Another user stated, “I’d rather have Putin as my neighbor than you, Geraldo.”
Another person asked: “Are you still around and butt-hurt that Tucker Carlson is wildly more successful than you ever thought of being?” after which three laughing emojis appeared.
Carlson expanded on his conversation with Sund in his interview with Brand. CONTINUE READING…
