Fox News’ Sean Hannity is one of the most popular political commentators in the entire country.
But things often get heated during Sean Hannity’s nightly show on Fox News.
And jaws dropped when Rush Limbaugh’s replacement went on Fox News and got into a heated argument with Geraldo Rivera over this one police shooting.
After Rush Limbaugh passed away in February, Cumulus Media chose the popular conservative radio host Dan Bongino to be his replacement.
Bongino is known for speaking his mind.
And that’s exactly what he did on Thursday when he appeared on Sean Hannity’s show with Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera to discuss the Atlanta Police Department reinstating officer Garrett Rolfe one year after Rolfe shot and killed Rayshard Brooks.
During a struggle between Brooks and Rolfe, Brooks stole Officer Rolfe’s taser and fired it directly at his head.
Officer Rolfe responded to Brooks firing the taser at his head with three deadly shots, leading to him being fired the next day after Black Lives Matter mobs threatened to riot and burned down the Wendy’s where Brooks was shot dead.
But during Thursday’s show, Rivera tried to claim that Rolfe was not fired and that losing his job was not a big deal, leading Bongino to accuse him of being drunk.
Bongino: So your suggestion here is, “Fire the guy because the mob said they’d burn the community down”?
Rivera: No. The firing of the officer did not materially harm the officer who was facing very serious criminal charges. He has a lot more on his plate than whether he has a job right now.
Bongino: Geraldo, seriously man. Have you been drinking? They fired the guy! What you mean they didn’t materially–they fired him! That was on his record! It was all over the news! If you put him in a search engine it shows–
Rivera: His firing is the least of his problems.
Of course, not only did the police department fire Rolfe, but prosecutors also filed 11 criminal charges against him, which outraged many Americans for caving in to the Black Lives Matter mob.
The truth is that it’s pure terrorism and cowardism to allow a violent mob to force prosecutors to bring criminal charges under the threat of looting, rioting and arson.
But apparently, Geraldo Rivera failed to make the connection.
