Fox News correspondent and a former 'Celebrity Apprentice' contestant, who has been a longtime advocate of President Donald Trump but has for the past few months become highly critical of his longtime friend’s effort to overthrow the election, tweeted on Tuesday, January 12, that he agreed with Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney’s announcement that she would support impeaching the POTUS for inciting a deadly insurrectionist riot that saw the US Capitol building breached on January 6. 

“A loyal friend, hounded without mercy by Democrats intent on destroying him from Day 1,” Rivera tweeted. “Then he lost the election. It made him crazy or revealed a dysfunction I had refused to see. He then unleashed a mob to make war on their own government. 5 to their doom. @LizCheney is right.” While not supporting Trump's impeachment directly up till that point, Rivera had condemned the part played by the president in the inciting violence in Washington D.C. 

"#DonaldTrump defiant and accepting zero blame for the insurrection that killed five-including two cops-terrified everyone from VP Pence, @SpeakerPelosi
and defaced our national shrine, the U.S.Capitol," he wrote in an earlier tweet and added in another, "Don’t Impeach Trump unilaterally. #Censure him unanimously." In one more he wrote, "Impeachment is as inevitable as #DonaldTrump’s eventual acquittal. The net result will be more division on a nation already torn asunder."

One of his tweets said, "'Donald John Trump engaged in high Crimes and Misdemeanors by inciting violence against the Government of the United States.' He says didn't mean to incite & inflammatory words may be protected by 1st Amend. Still he should apologize. What did he think that crowd was going to do?" In another he wrote, "#Impeachment #DonaldTrump is unswerving goal of House Democrats. They've got a stronger case than 1st time. #Ukraine was hit job-an Impeachment for nothing. Death & mayhem unleashed Wednesday by inflammatory rhetoric of #POTUS & allies makes stronger case. But still no conviction".



 



 



 



 



 

Rivera was slammed on Twitter and his first name became the topmost trend on social media on Tuesday. "You fueled it and abetted it for four years-you don't get to wipe your conscience clean now, Geraldo. OWN IT," one of them said, while another, "What @GeraldoRivera is saying is 'Grab ‘em by the pussy,' numerous sexual assault cases, Central Park 5, mocking Gold Star families, 'shithole countries,' separation of families, 'Mexicans are rapists' and dozens more were ok with him. But NOW he’s not a fan. Fuck you, Geraldo."

The third said, "Geraldo, if your didn’t know Trump was a dangerous narcissist before this, then you’re a worse judge of character than Ted Bundy’s girlfriend." One more commented, "That's funny shit, Geraldo, because WE ALL KNEW THE MOMENT HE CAME DOWN THE ELEVATOR THAT HE WAS A SOCIOPATH. He was not hounded without mercy. He was criticized for being a shitty president. There's a difference, you wet bag of hair." The next reacted with, "Geraldo: 'It... revealed a dysfunction I had refused to see.' Do you think that 'dysfunction' is what the Americans who hounded him from Day 1 could see clearly — knowing that what he was, is, and will always be, is someone who hurts people?" 

A commenter tweeted, "Get over yourself, Geraldo. Obama was 'hounded without mercy' by Republicans for EIGHT YEARS. It goes with the territory. Stop whining." One more remarked, "Oh so it’s the Democrats fault. I see." Another quipped, "Geraldo was also disappointed to learn this week that John Gotti wasn't quite as upstanding a citizen as he had thought." A person wrote, "Geraldo needs a weatherman to know which way the wind blows."
