‘I’m Begging You to Apologize’: Geraldo Confronts, Scolds Huckabee for Holocaust Remarks
Three of the five hosts on Fox’s The Five today told Mike Huckabee directly they weren’t exactly happy with his provocative remarks about the Iran deal, in which he said that Obama “will take the Israelis and march them to the door of the oven.”
Of the three hosts, Eric Bolling was the least bothered, saying he was only upset that it took away from what Obama’s been saying. Dana Perino told Huckabee that “when you bring up the Holocaust, everybody loses” and Democrats on the fence about Iran might get off it and onto the president’s side.
But it was Geraldo Rivera in particular who confronted Huckabee for his “inappropriate” remarks. He told Huckabee he “offended many, many people in the Jewish community” and said, “I’m begging you to apologize.”
Huckabee refused to do so, insisting that when Iran continues to say such inflammatory things about the Jewish people and Israel, and “if we don’t take seriously the threats of Iran, then God help us all.”
