Geraldo Rivera has on-air ‘meltdown’ over people not getting vaccinated
Fox News host Geraldo Rivera said if you’re unvaccinated you are a “selfish, arrogant, SOB” in a rant during an episode of The Five.
“You have to understand that if you’re unvaccinated then you should at least get tested every week, on your own, or understand why you are banned from the VA, why you are banned from restaurants, why you are banned from other businesses, and colleges increasingly. And they should be because it’s selfish. If you’re unvaccinated and you’re going around without being tested, you are an arrogant, selfish, SOB,” Geraldo said.

“What’s your proof that people are wandering around willy-nilly spreading the disease? You sound like you don’t have any evidence, said co-host Greg Gutfield in response to Rivera’s comments.
“You want evidence? 99% of the people sick in the hospitals in Los Angeles county of COVID are unvaccinated. How’s that for proof?” Rivera responded.
Moments before the tense exchange Rivera called the vaccines “bulletproof against the damn disease.” He said he was “appalled” to hear his co-hosts Jesse Waters and Gutfeld blame the rise in COVID-19 infections on the flood of illegal immigrants crossing the southern border, “without any evidence.”
Waters’ evidence to support his claim was “common sense,” to which Rivera snapped back “Common sense is not proof!”
Gutfeld quipped back to Rivera, “As a feminist, what happened to ‘my body, my choice,’ Geraldo?”
“I do not believe ‘my body, my choice’ when it comes to the damn vaccine,” Rivera said. “I am absolutely in the camp of no shirt, no shoes, no vaccine, no service,” he added.

“Geraldo just had another absolute meltdown on live TV, says those who are unvaccinated should be ‘banned’ from ‘restaurants,’ ‘businesses,’ and ‘colleges:’ ‘If you’re unvaccinated… you are an arrogant, selfish SOB.'” Tweeted Benny Johnson along with a video of the alleged meltdown.
