The issues at our Southern Border have provided many heated discussions, but perhaps none as volatile as a recent episode of Sean Hannity’s Fox News program, where bleeding-heart Geraldo Rivera tried to defend the migrant caravan. He was instantly shut down, and it’s a sight you don’t want to miss.
While appearing on Hannity, Geraldo Rivera and Dan Bongino had a heated argument over the migrant caravan attempting to enter the U.S., and the two decided to fight it out on the air for all to see. Unfortunately for Geraldo, it didn’t end well for him as he was taken to task.
Geraldo is one of the most recognizable liberals on the conservative network, and he has no qualms about making his left-leaning views known in front of his right-leaning counterparts. He objects to the portrayal of the migrant caravan as a threat to the United States, despite emerging reports that it contains dangers ranging from diseases such as tuberculosis to violent criminals.
Even so, Geraldo chose to make his misguided sentiments clear on Hannity’s show. But, Dan Bongino, a former Secret Service agent, refused to let him get away with it. “Geraldo, again, I appreciate your nice comments. I consider you a friend. But you are way, way off base on this,” Bongino said, slapping down Geraldo’s defense of the caravan. “I have stood at roll calls, I was a law enforcement officer. I’m not looking for anybody’s pat on the back, your tax dollars paid for it, it was a great job.”
With voices raised, Bongino than demanded Geraldo tell him what the Border Patrol agents are supposed to do when rocks are flying at their faces. “What’s your answer!?” Bongino exclaimed. But, of course, rather than provide an answer to the question and give a solution, Geraldo only chose to focus on what you don’t do with no alternative given. Repeatedly, Geraldo had to be asked, “What do you do?”
Sadly, when Geraldo finally came up with an answer, it still didn’t address the actual question presented. “You send Spanish-speaking ambassadors to the crowd,” he claimed as a solution for our Border Patrol agents taking rocks to the face. In response, Hannity played a clip to remind Geraldo of the actual violent reality at the border with this caravan crisis.
Even with the facts before him, Geraldo stuck to his guns. “This is a benign, civilian crowd,” he claimed, even as the images of mostly men, armed with rocks and rushing our border played on the screen. Geraldo continued to demand “humanity and compassion” from the U.S., seemingly ignoring the real threat we are up against.
But, this is nothing new for Geraldo. Just days before appearing on Hannity, he was defending the caravan after Border Patrol fired tear gas at migrants attempting to force their way into the U.S. “This goes to my soul,” he said. “Fulfilling my role as the designated piñata on Fox News, I wanna say I am ashamed. This tear gas choked me.”
“Fulfilling my role as the designated piñata on Fox News I want to say . . . I’m ashamed, this tear gas choked me.”

Regardless of what Geraldo Rivera wants to believe, the migrant caravan is a threat to the safety and security of the United States. That frightening reality doesn’t suddenly disappear just because there are women and children in tow.
Our Border Patrol agents are being violently attacked as migrants literally attempt to storm their way into our country without legal permission. God forbid someone tries to invade Geraldo’s home in the same fashion, I wonder if he’d still practice the “humanity and compassion” he so adamantly preaches.
The facts are clear. We’ve learned that the caravan is housing not only criminal elements but also dangerous communicable diseases, according to The Political Insider. Geraldo’s flimsy argument is easily flattened with facts.
Whether he wants to admit it or not, he’s defending an infectious, gang-filled throng of migrants trying to enter the U.S. illegally, putting us all at risk — including innocent American women and children. So, tell me, where’s the humanity and compassion in that?
