Geraldo Rivera Shreds Dan Patrick’s ‘Jingo Rhetoric’ After Being Called An ‘Accomplice’ in Mollie Tibbetts’ Murder

Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera is returning fire after Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick (R) accused him of being an “accomplice” in Mollie Tibbetts‘ death.

Patrick gave an interview on America’s Newsroom earlier today, where he went on a full-throttle rant about how Democrats, congressional Republicans and the “mainstream media” have blood on their hands because they refuse to talk about or take action over illegal immigration. The Texas lieutenant governor anchored his talking points around the fact that an undocumented immigrant is currently being charged as the prime suspect in the Tibbetts murder case.

Since Patrick included Rivera in his list of people complicit in crimes committed by illegal aliens, Rivera is hitting back — condemning the politicalization of Tibbetts’ death. He’s also challenging Patrick to a debate on the matter.

UPDATE: Challenge accepted.
