On Fox & Friends yesterday, Geraldo Rivera delivered the Bibi Netanyahu smackdown we’ve been longing for.
First, Rivera countered the Fox whine that President Obama didn’t congratulate Netanyahu on his electoral win:
RIVERA: If I were President Obama, I would have sent Bibi Netanyahu a congratulatory postcard by snail mail on a form written, “Congratulations on your recent election.” …It is the appropriate thing to do to someone who has absolutely insulted the American constitutional system by coming here uninvited. …It caused a division in the U.S.-Israeli relationship that has never existed before, it has carved the Congress of the United States in half, it has in many ways unsettled and made unstable that relationship.
Then Rivera went after Netanyahu’s race-baiting campaign fear mongering that “Arab voters are coming out in droves to the polls.”
RIVERA: And then for Bibi Netanyahu to run the campaign in a way that I believe was, to its core—made a racist appeal to Israeli hard-right voters to come out because these droves of, these Palestinians are going to vote.
And Netanyahu’s refusal to back a two-state solution:
RIVERA: Bibi Netanyahu revealed his true self in this election. Not only in his contempt for Arab-Israeli voters but also with his unequivocal statement that there will never be a two-state solution as long as he is Prime Minister.”
…These (Palestinian) people have been under occupation since 1967. You wonder why they are radicalized?
Almost as enjoyable as Geraldo’s words, were the protestations and futile attempts from the Curvy Couch Crew to defend Netanyahu.
