The View Grills Geraldo Rivera Over Whether Javanka Can Bring Peace to Mid East: ‘They’re Over Their Head’

Conservative pundit Geraldo Rivera faced the scrutiny of the ladies of The View this morning when he sung the praises of Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

The panel called attention to a tweet Rivera wrote on March 5 saying that Javanka “work in a nest of snitches, vipers & rats.”

“I believe it to be true, particularly under the Steve Bannon regime,” Rivera said. “They are stinkers in that Oval Office. I think that they don’t want the best for the president. Ivanka and Jared, just take these young people working for no salary. They’re worth $1 billion.”

“Oh, that breaks my heart,” Joy Behar said, voice dripping with sarcasm. “They’re over their head, Geraldo. Come on.”

When Rivera said he disagreed, Sunny Hostin chimed in: “What experience does Jared Kushner have to solve the Middle East crisis?”

“I have covered the Middle East since the Yom Kippur War of 1973,” Rivera replied. “I have watched every professional diplomat go in there and get chopped… I think he is as qualified to have a dialogue as anybody else.”

Ah, dios mio, Geraldo, come on,” Hostin said, rolling her eyes.

“I would pick a lot of other people before them,” Meghan McCain responded. “I’d pick a lot of people before Jared to help fix what’s going on in the Middle East, a lot. Like thousands.”
