Geraldo Rivera Says He May Run for New Jersey Senator… As a Republican? (Video)

A Republican?… Really?
Geraldo Rivera told Shepard Smith today on Studio B that he is strongly considering to run for the US Senate in New Jersey. Geraldo says he will run as a Republican. Then he went on to slam the “nativist wing” of the party and urged the GOP to be more inclusive.

“All of my elected heroes growing up were Republicans.”

Good for Geraldo.
He can’t be any worse than the Democrat socialist they have in office today.

    Dazed and very confused! Pre senile dementia? Or just born that way.

  • gastorgrab

    This is a liberal plot to make Republicans look stupid.

  • Ohiovoter

    Remember Jerry Springer was mayor of Cincinnati and was an also ran for governor of Ohio. Geraldo is a similar “has been”.

  • oh god just when i thought i couldn’t have worse senators then menendez and lautenberg(aka the cadaver).

    dear gerry, there is a difference is being anti-immigration and being anti-colonization.


    He can be and is worse. He is a Democrat socialist, but he will use the GOP title. Don’t you see that when GOP sides with and lauds socialist ideals it hurts the chances of the GOP to enact conservative action?

  • Tom Doniphon

    A Christie Republican!

  • Winston Wolfe

    Um, no.

    Not just no, but haaaale no.

  • SeniorD

    Gerry Rivers (aka Geraldo Rivera) running for office as a Hamiltonian just means YARIC (Yet Another RINO in Congress). I wager he’ll vote for with the Communists more than Hamiltonians.

  • Bitter Clinger

    Jerry has stipulated that he is a registered Republican for many years. IMHO he does so for cover. i.e. he is free to critisize all day long. He is no more a Republican in real life, than I’m a sea cow with opposing thumbs.

  • Mn Jim

    Geralso is Republican like Colin Powell and Shepard Smith are Republicans.

  • HAHAHAHAHAHA he couldn’t even find Al Capone’s Vault, what makes him think he can find Liberty, Honesty and the Constitutional American way?

  • Indiana

    That’s all we need….another anxiety ridden, narcissist, prone to hysterics…….in our Government. Well New Jersey….you elect him….you deserve him.

    run, run, run, run………..

    oh wait, they have Franken, ergo,
    that just might even sides out. 🙄

    He heard about the girls in Santo Domingo and wants in on some of that.

    the first thing that came to mind was an image of al franken…in a diaper…holding
    a teddy bear…and wearing bunny ears!

    ROTF 😆 MBO!!

    can you see them on the senate floor together, what a pair,
    and what a joke this country has turned into, trouble is, no
    one is laughing, and if they are, here’s a wee hint for them:

    expect when they least expect it..


  • donh

    Geraldo is putting it out there hoping Chris Christie will appoint him to fill the pending vacancy by Menendez…..His womanizing of younger women makes him the ideal replacement.

  • Kate

    I didn’t think Congress could possibly sink lower in anyone’s estimation but including Rivera would do the trick. He’s no Republican. I don’t know why he registered as one, but it isn’t for honest reasons.

    Then he went on to slam the “nativist wing” of the party and urged the GOP to be more inclusive.

    “Nativist wing”? What the hell is that supposed to mean?

    Sounds like he’d fit right in with the other northeastern Republican phonies.

  • LMAO! he wants to get up close and personal with the “nativists” its a great way to openly infiltrate the party…haaaa! Wonder if he’s been spending time with Jeb & George P. III?

  • Rose

    I’m sure he and RUBIO have much in Common. Tough. He is still a DONKEY.

  • Mad Hatter

    He would be better suited to run for the local dog catcher.

  • sha-doo-doo

    It’s Jersey, who cares?

  • lonestar

    Against Lautenberg or the seat soon to be vacated by the pedophile?

  • Arnonerik

    Is Elizabeth Warren in the Nativist Wing of the Dumbocrat Party?

  • Sean

    A Puerto Rican Jew. A living Jackie Mason punchline.

  • He still can’t make the distinction between legal and illegal when it comes to the term ‘immigrant’.

    hey, wait a minute, maybe he’ll
    find Obama’s Birth Certificate!!


  • Tabby

    When this was on TV earlier with Geraldo talking about it, I just kept screaming; “NOOOOOO!!!!”
    All we need is a RINO to the Xtreme like this buffoon to destroy the GOP’s image once & for all..
    God help us!

  • Hy Feiber

    Hey Gerald, in Mexico there Are No Sanctuary Cities!! In Mexico those who harbor illegals go To Prison. Bet you didn’t know that! Dummy!!

    Leftists are utterly immune to reality and reason. I stopped trying to reason with the leftists in Seattle, where I live, some time ago. For it’s akin to reasoning with a child. Not worth my time, or energy.

  • Hy Feiber

    As a Jewish conservative, I want to retch when I listen to Schumer, Barney, Boxer, Waxman, and all the other like-minded lying blowhards, side with the welfare crowd, illegal immigrants, the gun-takers, and other assorted enemies of the American Dream.

    When my fellow Jews voted twice for the Boy Prince, despite his clear hatred of America, the one country that has afforded them such Freedom, I was Repulsed. Such ingratitude for this Wonderful country.

    Incomprehensible, really.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    A Puerto Rican Jew.

    I remember that the character of Juan Epstein in “Welcome Back, Kotter” was said to be a Puerto Rican Jew…

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    When my fellow Jews voted twice for the Boy Prince, despite his clear hatred of America, the one country that has afforded them such Freedom, I was Repulsed.

    The bigger problem is that for a lot of them, voting that way seems to be one of those hard-to-break habits. Democrats could do exactly what the Nazis did line-by-line and I’m convinced that a fair amount of Jews would still vote for them.

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    What gives? Does the word “Nazi” trigger some sort of comment filter?

  • Blacque Jacques Shellacque

    Wow, that was weird. When I posted comment #39, it never appeared when the page refreshed itself like it usually does.

  • dwdude

    i’m guessing jharp and shadow don’t live in the northeast, otherwise they would be carpet bombing this article too. what utter sycophants for obama. they are truly shallow and tiresome…

  • Patty

    I don’t agree with Geraldo on many things and nothing surprises me, anymore.

  • Lincoln’s widow

    what makes him think he can find Liberty, Honesty and the Constitutional American way?”

    Uh, because he is Superman?

    You are so darn cute. 🙂


  • jb books

    This particular invidual thinks very much of himself. An a**clown of the highest order.

  • jorgen

    Infiltration of the enemy.

  • Fuquay Steve

    The establishment will love him more, if he became a transvestite – that way he could not only help in the Jewish demographic and the Hispanic demo, but the illusive cross gender demo that they usually lose big time.

  • chas

    Hey Rivers ,why not form the RINO party and run under that banner?

  • RedBeard

    Geraldo is just another useless pimple in the “celebrity” world who has accumulated fame by being… er… by being a useless pimple.

    He actually reached the pinnacle of his talent reserve when he was still calling himself Jerry. It was then that some phony “diversity” clown at the station decided that Geraldo would sound better, as they pandered to the ethnic PC agenda.

    A phony by any other name would smell as foul.

  • Dabbobean

    Geraldo is a shameless, publicity guzzling, open-borders, liberal hack…….he’ll certainly be able to make some friends in the US Senate.

  • Sean

    Geraldo looks like Barry Goldwater/Ronald Reagan/John Ashbrook compared to Christie.

  • Sirriptishous

    Geraldo VOTED for Obama twice. I live in Los Angeles and hear him on morning radio where he proudly espouses Liberal talking points. Personally I can’t stand his guts. Nothing more offensive than a fraud(Liberal in Republican clothing) lecturing GOP.

  • jimbob2000

    He also wants to require registering all guns, and have all gun transactions require background checks.

  • is he going to run under his real name gerard or his stage name geraldo?
