On Monday night, conservative pundit Dan Bongino mocked Fox News’s Geraldo Rivera for his “dopey comments” defending the outrage and riots that stemmed from the police shooting death of Daunte Wright, who is black. And on Wednesday’s “Hannity,” the two conservatives got into it again when Bongino accused the journalist of promoting racial divide.
“People like Geraldo continue to pump out a race narrative with no data to back it up at all,” Bongino said, before calling the journalist out. “All you want to do is see the country burn.”
Riviera was furious at Bongino’s accusation, responding, “I want to see the country burn? You son of a bitch! I want to see the country burn? You punk! You’re nothing but a punk!”
The interview ended shortly after the exchange, but not before Bongino challenged the journalist, saying, “You wouldn't tell me that to my face.”
