Geraldo Defends ‘Seriously Intoxicated’ CNN Reporter: ‘Covering Baghdad Would Drive Anyone to Drink’
“I’m a big fan of CNN’s Arwa Damon, bold, courageous and true,” Rivera tweeted. “Cut her some slack. Covering Baghdad etc could drive anyone to drink.”
Damon is in the middle of a lawsuit after allegedly becoming “seriously intoxicated” and biting two EMTs in July while in Baghdad. The two EMTs are suing CNN for $1 million each.
Rivera has had his own booze-fueled incidents in the past. In 2013, he famously tweeted a near-nude photo of himself looking into the mirror, bragging about his body. Fox News made him delete the photo from his account and he blamed his unfortunate social media decision on a bottle of tequila.
Morning. I'm a big fan of CNN's Arwa Damon, bold, courageous and true. Cut her some slack. Covering Baghdad etc could drive anyone to drink.
