Geraldo Rivera isn’t afraid to debate his fellow Fox News employees. On numerous occasions, he’s found himself in heated arguments with others at the network over the Benghazi, Libya, terror attacks. On Friday morning, Rivera clashed, once again, with the hosts of “Fox & Friends” over Gen. David Petraeus’ knowledge of the violent embassy attack.
Of particular note was Rivera’s defense of the former CIA-head, claiming that any indication that he was not fully honest due to fears over his affair being held over his head were unacceptable and unfounded.
“It is inconceivable to me that this honorable warrior, this American Napoleon, this best general since Dwight Eisenhower, would ever dishonor his service because he was afraid the FBI was going to embarrass him with this extramarital affair,” Geraldo said. “I think that — hold it, I just want to say this — that speculation is absolutely reckless and has no fact bas at all and it really is a disgrace to a man…”
