The anti-Trump bias at Fox News strikes again!
Fox News correspondent-at-large Geraldo Rivera declared on Tuesday night that he supports the impeachment of President Donald Trump.
Rivera responded to news that Republican Congresswoman Liz Cheney said she would support impeaching Trump for inciting the riot at the U.S. Capitol last week.
“A loyal friend, hounded without mercy by Democrats intent on destroying him from Day 1,” Rivera tweeted, seemingly attempting to explain Trump’s mindset. “Then he lost the election. It made him crazy or revealed a dysfunction I had refused to see. He then unleashed a mob to make war on their own government. 5 to their doom. @LizCheney is right.”

Rivera has spent the past few weeks condemning Trump and his allies.
During an interview on “The Story,” Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum kicked things off by claiming that it’s a “pervasive belief” among Republicans that Joe Biden didn’t win the Nov. 3 presidential election.
Then, in an equally condescending tone, network contributor Geraldo Rivera declared that Trump supporters who believe there was widespread voter fraud in the election are listening to “propaganda.”
MacCallum said, “The Atlanta Journal-Constitution did a piece where the reporter said not one person on the Republican side believes Joe Biden won this race. That is a pervasive belief out there. What do you say to all that.”
Rivera said, “It’s a belief, Martha, based on propaganda. We’ve heard nothing but whining and complaining. What about the courts? Don’t we have courts for a reason in this country? Every court that reviewed this matter decided against the Republicans, against President Trump. The high court of the United States, including three Trump-appointed Associate Justices, have ruled against or declined to take these cases. At what point do we say okay, Basta, enough. It’s pathetic this has been dragged so long.”

Rivera, once a steadfast ally of Trump, has been going after the president a lot lately
Last month, Rivera took to Twitter to declare that he’s fed up with Trump’s unwillingness to accept the results of the Nov. 3 election.
Rivera admitted that he defended Trump for four years from what he called “leftist creeps” but added that the president has behaved “like an entitled frat boy” since the election.
Fox News has abandoned its conservative base and gone all-in for Biden.
Fox News hosts Brian Kilmeade and Steve Doocy shot down President Trump’s claims of mass voter fraud Monday and said the president should concede.
Fox News stunned many when they published a new poll claiming that 42 percent of voters say history will remember President Trump as “one of the worst presidents ever.”
Host Jedediah Bila also recently created a firestorm when she said Trump has a “responsibility” to concede the election to Biden.
President Trump put Fox News on notice last week when he strongly suggested he may start a new media company to take down Fox News.
