Fox News longtimer Geraldo Rivera was scheduled to appear on Sean Hannity‘s program Tuesday night.
But Geraldo got the axe.
And it appears he got himself canceled in just two tweets.
The familiar Fox News personality was enthused about counseling Sean Hannity on war with Iran. Last week, President Donald Trump authorized the U.S. to take out Iranian leader Qasem Soleimani, a general the president has described as a “monster.” On Tuesday night, reports emerged that Iran had retaliated with missiles shot at two Iraqi bases housing U.S. forces.
There was talk that Trump may deliver an address to the nation.
But it was all premature chatter — the White House ultimately opted against it.
Perhaps it was this sentiment at 6:53 p.m. that was the death knell in Geraldo’s “Hannity” news hit Tuesday night.
Urging @realDonaldTrump to keep his powder dry. Plz don’t let this spin out of control. You can always hit them back. Plz don’t let this become an escalating- you hit me I hit you back harder-until we have another full-blown, bloody Mid-East War on our hands. What would we win?
