FNC’s Geraldo Rivera to Brian Kilmeade: Don’t Cheer Iran Strike — You ‘Never Met a War You Didn’t Like!’

On Friday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” network contributor Geraldo Rivera clashed with show co-host Brian Kilmeade over Quds Force Supreme Commander Qasem Soleimani being killed in an airstrike directed by President Donald Trump.

“I fear the worst,” Rivera said.  “You’re going to see the U.S. markets go crazy today. You’re going to see the price of oil spiking today. This is a very, very big deal.”

Kilmeade said, “I don’t know if you heard. This isn’t about his resumé of blood and death. It is about what was next. We stopped the next attack. That’s what I think you’re missing.”

Rivera replied, “By what credible source can you predict what the next Iranian move would be?”

Kilmeade said, “The Secretary of State and American intelligence provided that material.”

Rivera added, “Don’t for a minute start cheering this on. What you have done, what we have done, we have unleashed —”

Kilmeade insisted, “I will cheer it on. I will cheer it on. I am elated.”

Rivera said, “Then you, like Lindsey Graham, have never met a war you didn’t like!”

Kilmeade said, “That is not true. And don’t even say that!”
