Fox News general correspondent Geraldo Rivera apparently did not receive the memo Wednesday night warning of Democratic vice-presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s debate performance on the Sean Hannity show.
While other cable news networks criticized ‘lame and lame’ Vice President Mike Pence for repeatedly interrupting Harris during the debate, Hannity – a close confidante and adviser to President Donald Trump – and his other pro guests -Trump have predictably gushed over the performance of the veep. .
After saying Harris was ‘caught red-handed’ over big issues like race relations and lawsuits, Hannity turned to frequent guest Leo Terrell – a former liberal expert turned Trump booster which recently called itself “Leo 2.0” to recognize the public turn.
“Harris was lying so much that she needed a seat belt, she squirmed, moved around, because she was lying,” exclaimed a maniac Terrell. “She was just squirming. She even played the race card on Supreme Court packaging.
After Terrell finished his tirade against the California senator, Hannity turned to Rivera, telling his Fox News colleague that Harris had lied about several issues throughout the evening.
“I think you’re burying the lede, though, Sean,” said Rivera, a close friend of Trump. “The only real mistake Kamala Harris made tonight was to smile, to smile. She had to sell herself to the American people as not a scary woman, that she would be a competent, credible, and credible Vice President. I think she’s passed that threshold.
“I think the vice president’s only sin tonight was speaking,” he continued. “You know, people, I think – people get annoyed when the moderator says stop, stop, stop, three or four times. As for the specific question, I think it all depends on the impression. I think it was a tie.
Terrell and Hannity immediately blew up, although Rivera offered only slight compliments on Harris’ performance and noted that Pence had also scored points.
“What debate did he watch ?! Terrell erupted, calling on fellow panelist and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee to “straighten him out.”
“I love Geraldo, but he needs to get to an ophthalmologist tomorrow as soon as possible. He absolutely didn’t see the debate that Leo, me and the rest of America saw, ”Huckabee joked, making Terrell cheer loudly.
Hannity reiterated his guests’ assessment of Rivera’s analysis, also noting that if he “likes” Rivera, the Fox News correspondent “missed it all here.”
The three-way assault on Rivera continued for a few more minutes, culminating in Terrell yelling “well done” over and over after Huckabee accused Harris of not caring about the two California cops who were recently shot dead in a police station. ambush.
At the end of the off-track segment, Hannity insisted that Pence had “overwhelmingly won” the debate by stating of them unscientific online opt-in surveys, a tactic he used after last week’s presidential debate to falsely declare Trump the winner.
However, CNN’s science flash poll found that on Wednesday night, the vast majority of respondents believed Harris was the winner.
