Geraldo Rivera Says ‘Never Mind’ About False Flag Claims On Bombs: I ‘Outsmarted Myself’

Geraldo Rivera Says ‘Never Mind’ About False Flag Claims On Bombs: I ‘Outsmarted Myself’

Geraldo would like to take a mulligan.

During a Fox Business appearance last night, the Fox News correspondent-at-large jumped on the right-wing “false flag” bandwagon when he said he believed the pipe bombs mailed to high-profile Democrats and CNN was an “elaborate hoax” meant to divide Americans and “embarrass President Trump.”

Well, about that…

After federal authorities arrested 56-year-old Florida man Cesar Sayoc, a registered Republican who frequently posted pro-Trump and anti-Democrat messaged on social media and drove a literal MAGAmobile, Rivera took to Twitter to say, “My bad.”

“Never mind; outsmarted myself in conjuring false flag operation designed to hurt @realDonaldTrump & #GOP,” Geraldo tweeted. “Actual alleged perp 56-year old #CesarSayoc is apparently stereotype most media assumed: a middle-aged, rabid, extreme right winger w a troubled past & long criminal record.”

Anyway, nothing to see here. Now back to normal business.
