Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera blamed George Floyd for getting murdered, causing the problems the Democratic party is facing as the midterm elections come upon us.

During Fox News' The Five roundtable of conservative muckety mucks, the panel, as usual, attacked the Democratic Party for everything that is wrong in America.

Shockingly, when it was Geraldo Rivera's turn, one would have hoped he posed something more substantial and realistic to contrast the crazies of Pirro, Gutfeld, and Watters.

Those hopes were wrong.

"I think the most important person in the failure of the Democratic Party is George Floyd," Rivera said.


"I think that once he was murdered the country went crazy with the defund the police and everything else, the Democrats led the charge with a very very unrealistic government," he said.


I've never heard any sort of a political operative, office holder, journalist, pundit, activist, or even Fox News prime time host blame George Floyd, who was murdered on May 25th, 2020 by police officer Derek Chauvin for the problems the Democratic party faces in the upcoming midterm elections.

It's unconscionable.

What was laughable: Crazy Pirro immediately segued into the next segment saying, "Coming up next as the war on cops rages in America..."

Geraldo just addressed the murder of George Floyd by the police, which sent the country into hot and justified protests, and she considers that to be a war on the police.

What a creepy creep.

The Democrats' problems, such as they may be, have nothing to do with George Floyd. That happened over two years ago.

Yes, they provided a catchphrase for Republicans to scream over and over again about funding the entire police force of the country; of course, this is a lie.

Historically the party that holds the presidency loses the House in the midterms, but what made it especially difficult has been the supply chain issues as well as the Russian attack on Ukraine, which has created high inflation and energy costs.

This has triggered the Fed to go crazy raising rates and tanking the stock market.

Are conservatives going to celebrate Derek Chauvin now?

Will that trigger other wacko evangelicals to murder a person of color, hoping the reaction will help them in upcoming elections?

With all of that, there is no empirical evidence of a Democratic "shellacking" at this point in time. It appears to be wishful thinking.

Getting back to Geraldo. He should be ashamed of himself.
