"He put children in literal cages,” one person responded to the Fox News personality's wild claim.Geraldo Rivera faced backlash on social media after he described President Donald Trump as “a civil rights leader.” The Fox News personality made what he acknowledged was a divisive claim on Tuesday’s broadcast of “Fox & Friends,” one of Trump’s favorite shows, the day after Martin Luther King Jr. Day. Trump and his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., earlier both drew widespread condemnation for attempting to make MLK Day all about themselves. “Because why?” Rivera said. “African American unemployment, lowest it’s ever been. Latino unemployment, lowest it’s ever been. This rising tide, this rising tide is lifting all boats. We should be celebrating. Instead, he’s fighting this, this, you know, this cage match.” Rivera also said he felt “awful for” Trump for facing the Senate impeachment trial over the Ukraine scandal during his trip to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

What's wrong with Geraldo? Civil rights leader who puts kids in cages? Fox News be paying good money to get folks to say crazy lies. Like saying Steve Miller loves black and brown people on Saturdays. — Ernest Brewer Jr (@momobrewer) January 21, 2020 As you may recall, Trump's first ever mention in the New York Times was an article about the DOJ pursuing race discrimination charges because he wouldn't rent apartments to black people https://t.co/8D8T1WaA8S https://t.co/HfqCq8CKYY pic.twitter.com/NN8q7txKIk — Parker Molloy (@ParkerMolloy) January 21, 2020 I am not sure Geraldo knows what civil rights means. https://t.co/t46a3USeKe — Craig Newman (@craignewman) January 21, 2020 These kind of statements sicken me the most.

Trump's legal team says president did 'absolutely nothing wrong,' argues charges aren't impeachable offensesThe presidents lawyers argued that House Democrats had carried out 'a dangerous perversion of the Constitution that the Senate should swiftly and roundly condemn.' Of course they would say that it’s his attorneys He didn’t do anything wrong. Trump is good for America. At least he thinks good about American citizens. He may be a little harsh but then America first.

Senate rejects Democrats on documents, witness in Trump impeachment trialDemocratic Leader Chuck Schumer decried President Donald Trump’s Senate impeachment trial rules moved by Republican Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, saying ‘a trial without evidence is not trial, it’s a cover up' Have fun y'all with your dirty garbage politics while we either all get coronavirus or some much needed sleep. It's so sad to see the GOP doing this..... ... heartbroken really. Sounds like the Dems failed to do their job in the House. Hypocrites led by Schiff and pals. Now they want to dry about being fair. What a joke.
