‘I’d Knock You Out Right Now!’: Fox Hosts Nearly Come to Blows on Immigration

geraldo bollingA Fox News debate on immigration got pretty personal and ugly today, devolving into a shouting match over who’s “exploiting” the death of Kate Steinle more.

Steinle’s death at the hands of an illegal immigrant in San Francisco has been a watershed moment for conservatives who want to crack down more on illegal immigrants, especially Donald Trump.

As Fox’s The Five discussed Trump today, Jesse Watters credited Trump for his outspokenness and called President Obama a “skinny community organizer.” Geraldo Rivera scolded him for being “disrespectful” and things went downhill from there.

Rivera insisted Trump and others are making wrong conclusions about immigrants over Steinle’s death and shouted, “You’re exploiting the misery of that family!” Watters shot back, “You’re exploring it by downplaying it!”

Eric Bolling got into the mix and told Rivera he “exploits and sensationalizes everything.” This one really set Rivera off.

“You’re lucky that you’re my friend,” he said, “I’d knock you out right now. That’s absolute BS!… What do you do? Where do you get your stuff from?”
