Morons on air. The missiles were old and outdated, not a stroke of strategic genius. Sheesh. Fox needs to fire this ridiculous jihad sympathizer.
Geraldo Rivera Scolded After Praising Iran ‘For Intentionally Missing U.S. Forces’
By DailyWire, January 8th, 2019:
Geraldo Rivera of Fox News has been taking a beating on social media after he praised the Islamic Republic of Iran for “intentionally missing” its missile attacks on a U.S. air base in Iraq Tuesday night.
“Praise [Iran] for intentionally missing US forces they could easily have targeted last night. And praise too [President Donald Trump] for his restraint, in not tit-for-tatting with a counter-strike [versus] Iran in retaliation for their missiles. A war with Iran would be a loser for everyone,” Rivera tweeted on Wednesday.
Praise #Iran for intentionally missing US forces they could easily have targeted last night. And praise too @realDonaldTrump for his restraint, in not tit-for-tatting with a counter-strike vs Iran in retaliation for their missiles.
A war with Iran would be a loser for everyone.

People on social media took offense to Geraldo Rivera’s statement for praising both Iran and President Trump in the same breath. The backlash became so strong that the phrase “Praise Iran” began trending on Twitter.
“Praise Iran? We should Praise them for not slaughtering MORE Americans? Okay….? [Geraldo] praising a murderer because he killed less people than he could have should not be reason for Praise,” said one Twitter user.
“If you praise Iran for bombing our bases you have a screw loose, this was Iran not being suicidal enough to kill US troops because they knew how ferocious the hit back would be for it. Trump handled it perfectly. The US killed the most evil guy in Iran at nearly 0 cost thus far,” tweeted Robby Starbuck.
