Geraldo Rivera says he's been friends with Donald Trump for decades and thinks he has a decent chance at a second term.
Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera on Wednesday once again rallied to the defense of accused sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell, claiming it was “brave” for President Donald Trump to wish the Jeffrey Epstein associate “well” during a Tuesday press conference.While resuming his coronavirus task force briefings on Tuesday afternoon, the president was asked whether Maxwell—who has been charged with child sex trafficking and perjury—would “turn in powerful men” and implicate others in Epstein’s pedophile sex ring.“I don’t know. I haven’t been following it too much,” Trump replied. “I just wish her well, frankly. I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach. I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is.”Trump’s warm words for the accused Epstein madam quickly sparked a frenzy on social media and even prompted some Republicans to express discomfort over the remarks. “This is unacceptably obtuse for a woman accused of the most morally depraved of crimes,” tweeted Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX), who added that Maxwell needs to be “severely punished.”Geraldo Rivera: ‘Very Dishonest’ for CNN and MSNBC to Cut Away From Trump BriefingsRivera, a longtime pal of Trump’s who once starred on The Celebrity Apprentice, pushed back against the backlash and applauded the president for his courage and bravery.“When asked @realDonaldTrump said he wished GhislaineMaxwellArrested well,” the Fox star tweeted Wednesday morning. “With media mob eager to see her lynched it was brave to weigh in. Fact: cases vs her are for crimes allegedly committed more than 25 years ago. She deserved bail & got solitary confinement: woke politics.”Rivera’s defense of Maxwell comes days after he lambasted the judge assigned to the Epstein associate’s case. Shortly after U.S. District Judge Alison Nathan denied Maxwell bail and set her trial for next July, Rivera accusing Nathan of “chickening out” and caving to the “mob.”“They are punishing her before conviction,” he exclaimed on July 14. “She has never been held liable in a civil suit, never been convicted of a crime. She is not Jeffrey Epstein.”He went on to claim that Nathan caved to political and social pressure while insisting that the charges against Maxwell are “wobbly.”Alan Dershowitz Grilled on Jeffrey Epstein by ‘Tooning Out the News’Read more at The Daily Beast.Get our top stories in your inbox every day.

Geraldo Rivera and "Fox & Friends" guest co-host Pete Hegseth clashed over Trump's "racist" tweet, and chants of "send her back" at a recent rally.
One can only imagine Geraldo Rivera knew the response he would get for piling on compliments while tweeting about Donald Trump, and the internet — leading with an unamused Judd Apatow — delivered.
A longtime Fox News reporter has criticised his own network over their coverage of the death of Mollie Tibbetts, a college student who was allegedly murdered by an undocumented immigrant in an Iowa cornfield last month. Ms Tibbetts’ death has ignited a fierce political debate in the US, with Republicans like President Donald Trump claiming it proves the need for stricter border control. Others, including Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera, say the case has been used to stereotype undocumented immigrants as violent criminals.
On "Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen," Geraldo Rivera said Donald Trump has done two things that almost made him write off his longtime friend.
On Thursday, Midler demanded an apology from the Fox News contributor after a video re-surfaced of the veteran singer and actress telling Barbara Walters in 1991 that Rivera and a producer “groped” and drugged her in a bathroom in the 1970s. The post prompted a storm of criticism against Rivera, leading him to issue a lengthy series of tweeted clarifications.
The dropping of the big bomb in Afghanistan led John Oliver into a clash with "Fox and Friends" contributors, especially Geraldo Rivera.
Geraldo Rivera capped off a week of looking back at talk show titans of yesteryear on Today. “The things he’s done about Mexicans, and Muslims, and Megyn Kelly, and others, that I totally disapprove of. Rivera also said that given the chance, he’d ask Trump if he really believes what he says or if he’s just trying to appease the people who helped propel him to the presidency.
Happy Movember 2016! A month we’ll remember as a time we thought about mustaches, men’s health, and… probably nothing else. The Movember Foundation began in 2004 with the goal of “changing the face of men’s health” by raising awareness for various cancers. We’d like to salute Movember and our mustachioed brethren with SuperFan’s Top 10 TV Mustaches.
For Hillary Clinton supporters, the prospect is so tantalizing: more damaging tapes of Donald Trump – perhaps worse than anything we’ve heard yet – recordings that could provide a final death blow to his presidential campaign. Over the weekend, Bill Pruitt – producer for the first two seasons of NBC’s The Apprentice – claimed tapes exist of the Republican presidential nominee making “far worse” comments than what Trump said in a 2005 video released Friday.
Bill O’Reilly used the start of Wednesday night’s O’Reilly Factor to defend himself against a sparky little storm of criticism about his Tuesday comments on a line in Michelle Obama’s Democratic Convention speech: “I wake up every morning in a house that was built by slaves.” He now fears for his safety.
