Tempers flared on Hannity Wednesday night, as Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera and conservative pundit Dan Bongino got into a heated argument. The chaotic exchange came just two days after the two sparred over the protests stemming from the police shooting of 20-year-old Black man Daunte Wright. The latest argument stemmed from a continuation of Bongino’s assertion that Rivera is creating racial divide with his reporting.
“People like Geraldo continue to pump out a race narrative with no data to back it up at all,” Bongino said, before calling Rivera out. “All you want to do is see the country burn.”
The accusation made Rivera irate. “I want to see the country burn?” Rivera repeated incredulously. “You son of a bitch! I want to see the country burn? You punk! You’re nothing but a punk!”
Wright was shot after a police officer allegedly mistook her gun for a taser. As a former police officer, Bongino also didn’t appreciate Rivera’s suggestion that cops holster their guns on the side of their non-dominant hand. He mocked Rivera saying, “I don't even know how to respond to that.”
Even though the two personalities often appear on Fox News together, it is evident that they do not see eye to eye. While Rivera tried to make his arguments about understanding the frustrations of protesters, Bongino repeatedly mocked him.
"Geraldo, take a Valium,” Bongino told Rivera. “You’ve been talking forever. You really gotta pipe down. My gosh, you’re a 70-year-old-man. Calm down. Get ahold of yourself.”
