Greg Gutfeld just embarrassed Geraldo Rivera live on national television

Jan 20, 2023

You could cut the tension with a knife on the set of Fox News. 

And once again it was Geraldo Rivera who was the butt of the joke. 

This time it was Greg Gutfeld who humiliated Rivera by pointing out this embarrassing mistake live on air. 

The rise and fall of Geraldo Rivera

At one point in his career, Geraldo Rivera was a well-respected investigative journalist. 

No one can discredit the work he did on the Willowbrook documentary that changed views, attitudes and laws on how Americans treat and care for the developmentally disabled. 

But that was back in 1972 – and Geraldo has become a caricature of himself since then. 

Now he might best be known for giving away top secret locations of U.S. troops during a live broadcast. 

And he’s had embarrassing meltdowns in his more than 20-years now with Fox News, including strange blowups pointed at the likes of Sean Hannity and Dan Bongino. 

And the hits just keep coming for Rivera as one of the co-hosts of Fox’ daily roundtable news discussion show, The Five

What does “AR” stand for?

In his latest viral moment, the former daytime talk show host was adamantly and aggressively wrong about a pretty basic gun fact. 

According to the Never-Trump “journalist,” “AR” stands for “automatic rifle.” 

“What does ‘AR’ stand for?” Gutfeld asked Geraldo while arguing about AR-15s, which Rivera says men only own to show off how “macho” they are.

“Automatic rifle,” Rivera responded.

“No, that’s not what it is,” Gutfeld said with a mocking head shake.

AR doesn’t mean automatic rifle, and it also doesn’t mean assault rifle as many Democrats have tried to gaslight Americans into believing. 

“AR” is actually an abbreviation for “ArmaLite rifle” – with ArmaLite being the company that first developed that particular firearm. 

But Geraldo isn’t about to let the facts get in the way of his gun-grabbing narrative. 

“All I know is, is AR-15s have no place in American society,” Rivera uncomfortably insisted after being corrected by Gutfeld. “Other than sport clubs.” 

Rivera didn’t elaborate on how Americans would be able to own and use AR-15s at sports clubs if they are outlawed as is the wish of many anti-Second Amendment leftists. 

Should AR-15s be banned?

The AR-15 has become somewhat of a bogeyman in the gun rights debate. 

Radical gun-grabbing Democrats and even weak-kneed RINOs have scapegoated the tool as an evil killer. 

However, once again, the facts don’t back up the narrative. 

According to the CDC, there were an average of 13,657 homicides per year during the 2007-2017 timeframe. 

About one-tenth of one-percent of homicides during that time were produced by mass shootings involving AR-15s.

In fact, according to CDC statistics, during that same period nearly 1,700 people were murdered with a knife or sharp object per year. 

That’s almost four times the number of people murdered by an assailant with any sort of rifle.

So, will Democrats advocate for knife-control next? 

Or is this just more of the disinformation they claim to want to regulate?

For Geraldo, it was just another embarrassing moment where he’s the butt of the joke.
