“Dead dude?” That is more than “major tacky,” jackass.

We knew Geraldo Rivera was cretinous, and an alleged man who threatens to spit on women, but this shows him as completely morally bankrupt. As Twitchy reported yesterday, CNN admitted to concealing evidence (the ambassador’s diary) in the murder of Ambassador Stevens (or as Geraldo would grossly say, “the dead dude”).  Geraldo didn’t like that CNN used the diary, but as his disgusting remark makes clear, he is likely just upset that he didn’t get his despicable paws on the “dead dude’s” diary first. We suppose we should be grateful that he didn’t call the deceased ‘nasty meanspirited preppy prick who delighted in cruelty,” as he’s been known to do. He has also made it quite clear that he is a sick ghoul who delights in politicizing on the backs of the dead.

Twitter users are rightfully disgusted.

Look, Geraldo, saying “dead dude” doesn’t make you hip nor cool. It cements your position as an irrelevant hack. And exposes you as the morally bankrupt cretin that you are. Do you know why “this business sucks,” Geraldo?

Because of people like you.

    Geraldo is a narcissist and a hypemaster. He believes himself to be relevant. He is irrelevant and we should ignore him and his appearances/shows on Fox.

    Geraldine Hair Aldo has been infecting television for more than a decade. The first I heard of him was the Capone’s Vault special, but people have posted that his television antics predate that…

    Anyway, more than a decade, and people still expect the uncouth to become genteel? Why?

    While I do believe anyone can change and become a wholesome human being — that’s one of the messages of the Gospel, put in general terms — I also know from experience that it is an all-too-rare event.

    It is sad that so many people have been fooled by Progressivism and hardened their hearts. These people really are to be pitied. The beliefs they’ve chosen tenders them incapable of ever knowing contentment, and can never provide even the possibility of attaining Happiness.

    You just don’t refer to dead people as “dead dudes” or “dead dudettes”. It’s disrespectful, more so in this case. I won’t refer to my recently deceased Grandpa as a “dead dude”. Then again, I did love and respect him, maybe because I have basic respect for people, unlike Geraldo.

    Sorry for the rant, but Grandpa literally just passed away yesterday morning. Now I only have 2 Grandmas(my other Grandpa passed away a few years ago). =(

        That case can be made, but Geraldo is a democrat who calls himself a Republican. This allows for a very unique, and quite dishonest, opportunity for Geraldo to trash Republicans and yet look like he’s only calling out one of his own. Some RINOs are worse than others but Geraldo is the worst IMHO.

        When Latinos and lay people see Geraldo being critical of Republicans, his words carry more gravitas because he calls himself one. Shep is a snake in the grass but at least he doesn’t claim to be one of us like Geraldo does.

        • bartleyc

        I don’t follow you at all. Why do you think Juan is their biggest mistake? He is a democrat and a useful idiot and not half as disingenuous or annoying as Alan Colmes or Ellis Henican …. Fox has to have democrats on their network, you know.

        Tamara Holder? That’s crazy IMHO. She’s far nicer than most democrats and certainly not any more disingenuous …. she’s not even planning to vote for Owebamao again.

        Leslie Jacobs? Not even on the Fox payroll.
        Geraldo has done far, far, far more harm to the GOP than those three combined. He’s a partisan democrat who calls himself a Republican and he turns Hispanics against the GOP through his weekly show on Fox and his Fox News websites.

        At least Juan can guest host the O’Reilly Factor for hours on end without one hint of partisanship … most dems could never do that …. particularly the two I mentioned up top.
