Another day, another media troll making extremely insensitive comments about a group of people.
Geraldo Rivera is no stranger to trolling, but the 72-year-old Fox News commentator appeared on Fox and Friends and took the opportunity to criticize the victims of the horrific Orlando mass shooting.
Rivera stated, “When you’re in that situation and you have no weapons, you have two choices. If you can’t hide and you can’t run, you have two choices. You stay and die, or you fight. For God’s sakes, fight back. Fight back.”
He continued, “There’s 100 people that he murdered with one weapon that he reloaded. When he reloaded they must, people must, America must understand, we are at war with Islamic terror, with these terrorists. We’ve got to stop them in Raqqa, we’ve got to stop them in Mosul, and we’ve got to stop them in the Pulse, Orlando.”
Either Geraldo hasn’t seen the chaos in the videos of the Irving Plaza shooting and the Pulse nightclub incident, or he truly believes that individuals could physically fight a person who is very armed, and extremely dangerous. Law enforcement officials and safety experts say that the smartest course of action in any active shooter situation is to escape the area as quickly as possible.
Check out Geraldo’s ridiculous comments in the video above.
