“I don’t wish ill on anybody, but there is no doubt ― as I said at the time ― Tucker Carlson’s perverse January 6 conspiracy theory was ‘bullshit,’” Rivera tweeted two days after the network star’s exit was announced. “Having lost the election President Trump incited an insurrection that sought to undermine our Constitutional process.”
Greg Gutfeld, a co-host on “The Five” who has defended Carlson following his departure, replied in what appeared to be a sarcastic tone: “You’re a class act Geraldo. A real man of the people.”
On Thursday, after announcing his canceled appearances, Rivera responded to Gutfeld: “Thank you @GregGutfeld for your kind remarks.”
Geraldo Rivera, at one point in his life, did not answer correctly when he was asked what the AR stands for in AR-15. No, I'm serious, this really happened. Geraldo got put in his place by Greg Gutfeld after Geraldo made one of the most totally incorrect statements he could imagine. Geraldo was pushing gun control commentary when he incorrectly said what the AR in AR-15 stands for. Geraldo said it stands for automatic rifle which is completely incorrect. The AR in “AR-15” rifle stands for ArmaLite, after the company that developed it in the 1950s. “AR” does NOT stand for “assault rifle” or “automatic rifle.”
Greg Gutfeld: "What does 'AR' stand for?"
Geraldo Rivera: "It is automatic rifle."
Greg Gutfeld: "No, that's not what it is."
Geraldo Rivera: "All I know is AR-15s have no place in American society."
It would make sense for Geraldo to do some research on the things he wants to shun from society. The guy doesn't even know what the name stands for, but he wants it out of society. It doesn't help his argument when he makes mistakes like this.
