‘Throat Cutting Savages’: Geraldo Responds to John Oliver

geraldo

On the most recent episode of Last Week Tonight, host John Oliver slammed Geraldo Rivera for a recent appearance on Fox & Friends, during which Geraldo said he definitely approved of, and even liked, last week’s MOAB drop. His exact words were “One of my favorite things in the 16 years I’ve been here at Fox News is watching bombs drop on bad guys.”

Oliver responded to him by saying, “One of my favorite things in four season on this show is getting to look into the camera and say ‘fuck you Geraldo, I hope your mustache gets caught in a box fan.'”

Rivera took to Twitter this morning to fight back, saying that the bomb killed members of ISIS. “Remember them?” he asks. “Baby killing terrorists, throat cutting savages who rape & burn religious minorities?”

So far, Oliver hasn’t responded.
