During a heated argument on Thursday during a Fox News segment over the rise in COIVD-19 cases, conservative commentator Dan Bongino unleashed on Geraldo Rivera.
The pair, who joined Fox News host Sean Hannity’s show, disagreed over President Joe Biden’s relaxed border policies at the U.S.-Mexico border despite the rise in COVID-19 cases. Bongino continuously pointed to this development however Rivera kept trying to change the topic.
“Our fellow Americans will die because of this stupidity,” Hannity said when referring to how the immigrants coming over the border are bringing the disease with them.
“Talking about stupidity, actually, I reject that characterization, that harsh characterization,” Rivera replied.
“Oh, it’s brilliant? It’s smart?” Hannity said.
“It’s absolutely foolhardy —” Rivera started.
“It’s asinine. He is a jackass for doing it,” Hannity said.
“I believe in mandates, I believe in vaccine passports. I believe everyone coming into this country illegal, illegal, alien, earth person, wherever they come from, if they are coming into this country I insist that every one of them is vaccinated,” Rivera responded.
Hannity shot back, telling Rivera that he should tell President Joe Biden to COVID test every illegal alien coming over the southern border.
“Mr. President, I want everyone who is crossing into the United States whether by land, sea or air to be vaccinated. If they don’t want to be vaccinated, turn them around right there,” Rivera said as he tried pinning blame on Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.
“Let’s stay focused on the border, Geraldo. Focus on the border,” Hannity said as Geraldo kept talking about Florida cases.
“Geraldo!” Hannity said again.
“This has nothing to do with Joe —” Rivera said as Bongino jumped in.
“Geraldo, about Ron DeSantis, he doesn’t know the numbers. I live here,” Bongino said. “Geraldo, it’s not my fault you never know what you’re talking about.”
“You are so full of crap! You are so full of crap —” Rivera fired back.
“It’s not my fault you don’t research anything before you come on air,” Bongino replied.
“He doesn’t like to do that, Sean, because he always gets caught never knowing what he’s talking about,” Bongino jabbed after Hannity told Rivera to let Bongino talk.
“Stop that! Stick to the story, you are so full of it!” Rivera said.
“I did stick to the facts, I know them! You never know them,” Bongino stated.
“You want to grant a set of rights to noncitizens, right? You want to allow them to walk in and out of the country while I have to stop at a line at a passport station to come back as a citizen, while you want to take away actual citizens’ rights over controlling their own bodies and the medicines that go in it —” Bongino said.
“Gas lighting, gas lighting,” Rivera whined.
