    Geraldo Rivera Rips 2 GOP Senators For Turning Senate Into ‘Jerry Springer Show’

    Fox News veteran Geraldo Rivera on Tuesday ripped Republican senators for turning the Senate into “The Jerry Springer Show.”

    The Senate “used to be ‘the world’s most deliberative body,’” the conservative commentator wrote on Twitter.

    But “lately, it’s been a Bazaar for Bozos,” he lamented.

    Rivera called out the “low-brow rudeness” from GOP senators like Rand Paul (Ky.) and Roger Marshall (Kan.), who both have launched unhinged attacks on Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert.

    I wonder if Rivera has missed the fact that Congress has largely been turned into a Bazaar for Bozos by the GOP for many years already. I guess maybe it has finally reached a level now where even he can't miss it or ignore it.

    Sen. Rand Paul is fighting for integrity in government policies. Good for him, we need forty or fifty more just like him.

    He has so much integrity that he asks the MAGA to pay him to continue attacking Fauci.

    Has Geraldo been an underground bunker devoid of all outside stimuli? The other side elected a reality television actor and career criminal with no government experience and thinks "management" means firing people that don't kiss your @ss 24/7.

    Was he holding out some kind of hope that wouldn't turn into a train wreck?

    There's no way you wrote that with a straight face.

    Makes it difficult to take the article serious when it refers to Geraldo as a "conservative commentator." He is a moderate liberal and a long-time Democrat.

    It is so funny you said that. I was thinking about that when I posted.

    Do tell? Who is the representative that you feel is fighting for integrity in government politics?

    If nothing else he's at least pointing out the ridiculous amounts of money they throw away on things like studies to determine if quail **** more often while dosed with cocaine (spoiler: Yep, they do).

    Rivera has always appeared conflicted to me. He tries to straddle too wide a berth.

    Fauci is a piece of crap that belongs in prison. The man lies under oath (and on a regular basis) and subverts the Scientific process to the detriment of the American people.

    That's Geraldo getting his nose broken in a 3 way fight between skinheads, a black guy, and the studio audience.

    Daytime TV was a bit more sporty in the 80s.

    From the article, "Paul ridiculously blamed Fauci for all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States."

    Why is that ridiculous when the Dems blamed Trump for all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States in 2020 and have not blamed Biden for all deaths from the coronavirus in the United States in 2021?

    Seems to me that Fauci is a more likely person to blame than either one of the presidents.
    After all, masks don't prevent covid then they do, then they don't unless you wear 3.
    Kids don't spread covid, then they do.
