Geraldo Rivera is no stranger to controversy. He’s also does not hide his true feelings often. And during Wednesday’s episode of The Five, he let Americans know what he thinks of unvaccinated people:
“I think less of people who are not vaccinated. I think that it is an arrogant, selfish, reckless act. And I have five grandchildren, all under the age of 12, who are susceptible to someone sneezing on them — I think it is absolutely so selfish that it is appalling. Sometimes, government has to tell, not ask, government has to tell right now — I want people to have to show, when I go to the bar, I want to know that everybody is vaccinated. Or, have the test. Here’s my positive, or my negative test. Here it is. And every week…”
The segment didn’t go great for Geraldo as Katie Pavlich what other government-instituted health things should be mandated on everyone.
“Should we be subject to seeing all of your personal records,” she asked. “What if we start asking people about other procedures they’ve had.”
Geraldo said it was “caveman stuff.”
Jesse Watters let Geraldo know 30 percent of the U.S. military hasn’t been vaccinated and asked if he thinks less of the U.S. military.
“The tragedy is that this has been politicized and that the right-wing thinks one way and that the left-wing thinks another way,” Geraldo said. “That’s absolute bull.”
Greg Gutfeld pointed out that Geraldo wasn’t attempting to persuade anyone. Geraldo essentially agreed.
It did not go well for Geraldo. But I don’t really think any less of him for his ignorance.
