Geraldo Rivera Panicking After Damning Video Leaks – Is He The Next Matt Lauer?

Geraldo Rivera Panicking After Damning Video Leaks – Is He The Next Matt Lauer?

Geraldo Rivera is like a broken clock: He’s right twice a day, but no more than that. He has a way of lodging his foot firmly in his mouth that I’m sure is envied by even the most practiced of contortionists.

And he’s done it yet again by actually tweeting that he is sorry to see Matt Lauer go, after the NBC host was axed for sexually harassing/assaulting his female co-workers.

But it doesn’t end there. Bette Midler, raging feminist and generally angry human being, decided it was her duty to dredge up an old video from the bowels of the interwebs as a way to expose Rivera for also being a pervert.

Keep in mind, this is the guy who put out a legitimate “RIP” to Fidel Castro because – aside from being an evil tyrant who made the lives of the people who lived under his iron fist objectively miserable – he was “nice” to Rivera. There is ample evidence of his idiocy available at the tips of your fingers, if you care to go searching, but not everyone has seen the video that Midler posted in response to this ill-advised tweet:

Now, if the stories that we’re hearing are true, he did more than “flirt” with the women. There is video of him telling co-host Meredith Vierra to “keep bending over” because it was a “nice view.” In a separate interview, Katie Couric was asked what Lauer’s “most annoying habit” is, to which she responded “well, he does pinch my a** a lot.” Another woman claims the he sexually assaulted her until she passed out. If these stories are to be believed, and I have no reason to believe they aren’t, considering the circumstances of the interviews and the fact that video of him saying nasty things to a co-host exist, then he’s not just “flirting.”

As for “courtship,” the man is freaking married for crying out loud. Courtship is out of the question.

Following Rivera’s posting of this inane tweet, Midler released a video of her own.

The video, which is 26 years-old, shows Midler discussing how Rivera came on to her, but she didn’t sleep with him. This was contradictory to what he wrote in his auto-biography at the time, where he claims that he did, in fact, bed her.

“I’ll tell you the truth, if I had known 20 years later he was going to end up a slimy talk show host I never would have even let him in the room,” she said. “I mean you have no way of knowing that these things are going to come back to haunt you.”

In response to the uproar, Geraldo pulled an Obama and told us that we didn’t understand what he meant in his initial tweet.

Does he have some skeletons in his closet that might come tumbling out soon? We’ll have to wait and see.
