Geraldo: Rand Paul’s Credibility ‘Enormously Enhanced’ Over ‘Cranky Old Guys,’ Graham And McCain

Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera joined the hosts of Fox & Friends on Friday where he praised Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) who mounted a nearly 13-hour filibuster this week to compel the White House to admit that assassinating American citizens on U.S. soil without due process would be a violation of the Constitution. Rivera called Paul’s actions magnificent. He said that Paul’s filibuster was a victory over the “cranky old guys,” Sens. John McCain (R-AZ) and Lindsey Graham (R-SC).

“I think that what Sen. Rand Paul did with that 13-hour filibuster was absolutely magnificent,” Rivera said. “I was so proud of him.”

Rivera added that Paul’s actions, motivated by his genuine suspicion of the administration’s drone warfare program, were not only tactically brilliant but highly effective. Rivera called the filibuster that Paul mounted “noble” and “retro.”

“You can look at Rand Paul who has enormously enhanced his credibility, again, against the cranky old guys, Lindsey Graham and John McCain,” Rivera concluded.
