Rivera slams WaPo for ‘belittling’ Trump’s role in military operation

Rivera slams WaPo for ‘belittling’ Trump’s role in military operation

“ADOLF HITLER, A LOVER OF ARTS AND PETS, DIED IN A BUNKER AT BERLIN TODAY.” IT SHOWS THE UTTER CONTEMPT “THE WASHINGTON POST” HAS FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. THIS IS AN ATTEMPT TO BELITTLE THIS MAGNIFICENT ACHIEVEMENT AND HIS ROLE IN IT. I THINK IT IS VERY SYMPTOMATIC — IT’S NOT JUST AN OBITUARY HEADLINE. IT IS IN KEEPING WITH THE ABSOLUTE COMMITMENT OF THE OTHERWISE FINE NEWSPAPER TO KNOCK OFF THIS — TO MAKE HIS PRESIDENCY FAILED. “THE NEW YORK TIMES” WAS JUST AS BAD. IN THEIR FRONT PAGE ARTICLE IN WHICH THEY WERE REPORTING WHAT HAPPENED, THEY SAID THAT THE RAIDS EXCEEDED DESPITE THE PRESIDENT, NOT BECAUSE OF THE PRESIDENT! HOW COULD THEY GO THERE AND SAY THAT AS A MATTER OF FACT. IT’S REALLY OUTRAGEOUS, AND IT’S OF THEMATIC ABOUT THIS PRESIDENT. YOU CAN FIND A LOT OF DIFFERENT THINGS BUT THE ULTIMATE — THE OUTCOME IS THE OUTCOME. THE COMMANDER IN CHIEF IS THE COMMANDER-IN-CHIEF. THERE WERE A LOT OF PEOPLE INVOLVED IN THIS. THERE HAS TO BE A MOMENT WHERE WE CAN COME TOGETHER AT LEAST THOSE BASIC FACTS. HERE ARE SOME OF THE CRITICS THOUGH TODAY. >> THE PRESIDENT IS ABDICATING THE RESPONSIBILITY TO KEEP CONGRESS INFORMED. >> DON’T WANT A LOCKER ROOM KIND OF FEEL TO THIS. THAT WAS ONE OF THE THING WE WORKED REALLY HARD ON AFTER THE BIN LADEN RAID, DON’T MAKE THOSE KIND OF STATEMENTS BECAUSE THEY DON’T HELP ANY PEOPLE. >> HE ECHOED THE CRUDENESS YOU’D EXPECT OF HIM THAT HE REMINDS US. >> HE ACTUALLY SOUNDED LIKE SADDAM HUSSEIN AFTER TORTURING PEOPLE, SOUNDED LIKE MORE QADDAFIAFTER HE TORTURED PEOPLE. >> THEY DIDN’T LIKE HIS TONE, PEOPLE. >> I ABSOLUTELY DISAGREE WITH THE PERSON THAT DOES AGREE THAT THERE WAS NO CELEBRATORY TONE HERE. THERE SHOULD HAVE BEEN. USAMA BIN LADEN, THE MASTERMIND OF THE MASS MURDER IN NEW YORK ALMOST 3,000 AND IN THE FIELD IN PENNSYLVANIA AND WASHINGTON, D.C., ALMOST 3,000 AMERICANS WERE KILLED, WE CELEBRATED! WE GOT HIM, WE GOT THE WE GOT HIM! THIS AL-BAGHDADI IS A MASS MURDERER. HE TORTURED, HE RAPED, YOU HAD THE PARENTS ON, IT WAS SO PATHETIC TO WATCH HIM, SO HEART-WRENCHING TO KNOW THEIR DAUGHTER WAS HELD FOR A YEAR AND A HALF, REPEATEDLY RAPED AND TORTURED, THE JORDANS WHO WERE. THE DRILLING IN PILOT BURNED ALIVE ON CAMERA. PLEASE, THIS PERSON SHOULD HAVE BEEN ELIMINATED. THIS IS A GREAT MOMENT OF NATIONAL UNIT. BUT INSTEAD BECAUSE OF DONALD TRUMP’S UNPOPULARITY WITH THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, THE WHOLE THING GETS MUTED, GETS COMPLICATED THAN IT REALLY SHOULD BE. WHO DO YOU THINK ASKED THE IRAQIS AND SYRIANS AND THE TURKS AND THE RUSSIANS FOR PERMISSION TO OVERFLY THEIR TERRITORY? THE RUSSIANS HAVE VERY SOPHISTICATED GROUND TO AIR MISSILES PRETTY EASILY COULD HAVE SHOT OUR HELICOPTERS OUT OF THE SKY WHEN THEY CAME IN THE NIGHT, THE EIGHT OF THEM HEADING TOWARDS THAT SECRET COMPOUND. THE PRESIDENT HAD TO DEAL WITH THE SYRIAN KURDS, TO GET THEIR PERMISSION AND THEIR INTELLIGENCE. WHEN THE PRESIDENT — THIS PRESIDENT IN PARTICULAR, BECAUSE HE HAD WITHDRAWN OUR FORCES FROM NORTHEAST SYRIA KNEW THAT IF THIS TRADE GOD FORBID HAD FAILED, IT WOULD’VE BEEN ALL ON HIS SHOULDERS. IT WOULD’VE BEEN THE TRUMP RAID THAT FAILED. HE DID WITH BUT BECAUSE THE RAIDS EXCEEDED, THEY CAN’T — YOU KNOW, CONCEDE TO GIVE HIM ANY CREDIT AT ALL. >> Martha: GERALDO, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. STILL AHEAD, POPE FRANCIS CONSIDERS DRASTIC REFORMS FOR THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, INCLUDING A MEASURE THAT WOULD ALLOW MARRIED MEN TO BECOME PRIESTS. RAYMOND ARROYO AND JONATHAN MORRIS NEXT. if we listened more?

  1. The Republican Senate majority, once considered relatively safe, suddenly looks in serious jeopardy. Democrats are raising more money, and polling better, than Republican incumbents in battleground after battleground.
    President Trump trails every major Democratic candidate nationally and in swing states — and his favorable ratings remain well under 50%.

  2. Trump criticized President Obama for taking credit for killing Osama bin Laden. Karma tortures trumps soul everyday. Everything he does is all about one upping President Obama ,noone even knew who Bagdahdi was before Sunday morning, and tomorrow nobody will even care.

  3. Interesting Mr Trump gave Obama no credit for taking out Ben Laden. He said he did nothing but give orders. Are you saying Trump was the brain’s behind this take out? I am assuming I’m going to slammed for bring this up. You have show respect to gain respect. Just my opinion.

  4. Hey Geraldo quick question for you, have you found anything in Al Capone's vault yet? Hmmm no, not even your dignity tucked away in a dusty corner? Go figure.

  5. Obviously the Democrats Side with the enemies of the United States! That could be looked at as sedition and treason? It is out of control! Gone too far!

  6. Fox FAKE News! STAGED situation room photo & Trump MADE UP details about the mission! Clearly a state media FAKE NEWS attempt to distract from the IMPEACHMENT inquiry and DISASTROUS foreign policy decisions!!!

  7. The media treats it as a win for Trump.
    A win they do not want ti grant him.
    It was a win for America & the rest of the world!

  8. Mr Rivera you use to be a person i admired since i was a kid thought i never say this your a SELL OUT man trump is the demolition man a freaking walking disaster & you know it & the Geraldo Rivera of OLD.would have BEEN SAID. so ALONG TIME AGO it 's a SHAME. .man 👁

  9. It's sad to watch someones life be flushed during real time. Trump did not have anything to do with the accomplishment, he stole the credit, rivera is going down in flames.

  10. Yeah you tell em' …Trump was there….he and his dog chased this crying and whimpering ISS leader in a tunnel both were wounded when Al- Baghdadi exploded his vest !!! Trump got a Purple heart paid for by Mexico and the dog went back to Germany to recover !!!!!! 🇷🇺😀👍😀🇷🇺

  11. Let's face it – Trumpydoodle had NOTHING to do with the demise of al-Bagdadi – EXCEPT as a means of glorifying himself in it. It was a military exercise, independent of the Pink Orangutan, which had been in progress for a long time.

  12. Has Fox News conveniently forgotten about how Donald Trump not only repeatedly had dismissive tweets about President Obama role of killing Osama bin Ladin but also had a long interview with with Wolf Blitzer belittling President Obama. A guess a another classic example of double standard on Fox.

  13. Putin told Comrade Bonespurs where Baghdadi was. and had his other puppet Ederwan to let him through to chill the recent heat. All roads lead to Putin, our de facto President. Comrade Bonespurs is the spy and the Goons of Putin (GOP) are playing distraction defense. At least our military professionals know how to do their jobs with dignity.

  14. Trump must have blown a HzuGE hole in their EGzoS
    Dems plans were socialism for the poor controlled by
    Globalism for leaders and multimillionnaires the rich
    Demicracu is for the a eu cans

  15. WaPo? How much time does that save?
    Is it really too much trouble to type four syllables?
    Wash. Ing. Ton. Post. There. How hard was that?

  16. Trump had NOTHING to do with CIA or Military planning or execution.
    Trump personally attacks and belittles the CIA agents, military planners and patriots, and gold star parents ….except when they pull off a huge and couragious operation. Then Trump tries to take credit.
    Give me a break Rivera, where does FOX dig up these washed-up fossils?

  17. I AM A REPUBLICAN, LOCK UP TRAITOR TRUMP, MOSCOW MITCH AND RUSSIAN RUDY, AND BOYCOTT FAKE FOX NEWS AND SPONSORS LIKE TRIVAGO, BAYER, USAA, PROGRESSIVE, IHOP, ROMAN PHARMACY, WELLS FARGO, AND LOCK UP THE KOCK BROTHERS

  18. yall know Trump said far worse when Obama killed Osama right????? can check the full interview. but he also tweeted about it
    and I quote.

    Yesterday I explained to @wolfblitzercnn on @CNNSitRoom why @BarackObama doesn't deserve credit for killing Bin Laden

    I assume Trump lead this mission yes? haha maybe he had a gold platted M16?
    hahah u foxys such a short memory yall got

  19. Happened DESPITE trumps attempt to withdraw troops……Geraldo is a blind/tainted friend of Trump…do not pretend you are not…biased voice, get off the air as you are not unbiased…you speak only crap for a paycheck…Trump has no credability with US military with if fake bone spurs….Such a coward, taking credit when real men risk their lives

  20. Shut up Geraldo this is a man that hates Hispanics and you defend him but you sold out a long time ago anyway. I bet you haven't seen the Hispanic side of your family since you came up.

  21. Ok I heard about 2 or 3 American Lives this guy killed🤷‍♂️…Come on this almost seems like a Impeachment cover up story.

  22. Soon conservatives will control the Supreme Court for the next 40 years!!

    Democrats didn’t just shoot themselves in the foot but completely blew it off with a landmine!!!

  23. RIVERA…..the Gentleman is intelligent….and a GENTLEMAN.
    🇺🇸🇺🇸 TRUMP 🇺🇸🇺🇸 2020. 🇺🇸🇺🇸
    Not to worry Geraldo…AMERICA
    KNOWS WHO THE ENEMY IS IN THIS COUNTRY.🇺🇸🕊

  24. Sorry Rivera, I disagree. Granted I'm not fully apprised of the situation, that said with tRUMP's continuous lies who actually knows his total involvement? Also with tRUMP's nimble 'tweet' fingers, I rather assume the military kept him out of the loop until the last possible moment.

  25. FOX News is a joke. They support a draft dodger who is very corrupt and dishonest over a war hero with a purple heart. How low can FOX News and Trump go? FOX also edited out boos Trump received in Washington during Game 5 of the World Series.

  26. Omg !! I’m so proud of our commander and chief TRUMP !! Thank you for being the best president !!
    Proud REPUBLICAN

  27. Our good "friends" were purchasing oil from ISIS so let us know who were they Mr. Rivera. Or that would be too 'controversial'.

  28. The Left’s hatred for Trump is exposing their absence of love/care for these United States AND us Americans. And they wonder why they lost 2016 and (they know they’re going to lose) 2020?!? I’ve a repeated history of voting Democrats in the past…….never again!
    I may not (hell, I know I won’t) vote Republican “just because”. I’ll likely vote Center. But as they present themselves today, I’ll NOT be voting ANY Democrat. They’ve completely lost the plot! PTDS is real!

  29. Geraldo you have all my respect for saying like it's. Muchos politicos corruptos que no quieren a Trump porque el no es uno de ellos,me da mucho miedo si los democratas toman el poder en el 2020.

  30. tRump was involved in the military operation with the full breadth and width of his tiny little sausage fingered hands

  31. So what. Trump AND Fox insulted President Obama when his administration killed Osama Bin Laden. They/He said Obama should get no credit and it was all the Navy Seals credit. Every single thing Trump said about Obama is coming back on him 10 fold and he deserves exactly what he is getting.

  32. good thing the soldiers who carried out this awesome task weren't born entitled rich kids with daddy paid bone spurs doctors notes

  33. These so-called newspapers have no news, just propaganda. During Soviet Union times they were the official propaganda organs for the central committee of the communist party of the Soviet Union. Right along with Pravda and Izvestia.

  34. Being someone who served, draft dodgers don't deserve accolades. That should go to those that actually put there lives on the line for this country. Not for fake photo opps.
