Well, that didn’t take long. Now former Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera is already out making the rounds of left-wing media outlets and bad-mouthing his former colleagues.

Rivera has, of course, often been a shrill voice for the left on Fox News, but now that he has decided to quit the network after being fired from the popular panel show, “The Five,” it appears that there will be no holds barred as he flits about the media to diss his former co-workers.

In particular, Rivera focused on Tucker Carlson by telling the cackling ladies of ABC’s left-wing, daytime whine-fest “The View” that he will “never forgive” Tucker for daring to have opinions that run contrary to the left’s fake narrative of an “insurrection” on Jan. 6, 2021.

During his July 13 appearance on the late-morning talk show, Rivera gave faint praise to Carlson as “an excellent writer,” but then accused him of being a conspiracy theorist.

“I think that he is an excellent writer. I think that he was very charismatic in his presentation. He was number one for a reason, was a pretty good show. Then he drifted into this murky area where a swampy area where, you know, these conspiracy theories and it’s not just generates a whole bunch of different mucky kind of conspiracies,” Rivera told the hosts, according to Mediaite

He then went on to obliquely accuse Carlson of being irrelevant after being dumped by the cable news network.

“Fox is a tremendous platform. And once you lose that platform, you’re kind of screaming in the wilderness and competing with a lot of other people who have podcasts and so forth,” Rivera said. “So will he be the same character? I don’t know.”

But Rivera insisted that Carlson’s actions on Jan. 6 are unforgivable.

“I don’t like to be unkind, but that what he did, just as I would never vote for Donald Trump, I will never forgive Tucker for what he did about January 6th,” the left-winger insisted.

Somehow, it seems unlikely that Rivera’s disdain will feature very prominently on Carlson’s lists of things to worry about.

Rivera also blamed a “very toxic” relationship with another member of “The Five” for his send-off from Fox.

The longtime commentator said he never really fit in ideologically at the network, but admitted that network brass tried to find him another program to join after it was clear he had to leave “The Five.”
