With video footage of Minneapolis burning behind the set, FOX News commentator Geraldo Rivera offered a solution to keep police from shooting noncompliant suspects. “Carry the taser in the dominant hand, and the 9mm (handgun) in the secondary hand,” Rivera said.
Political commentator Dan Bongino was also part of the broadcast, and he sort of grunted in his retort. “I don’t even know how to respond to that,” he said of Rivera’s plan.
Then Rivera loudly interrupted. “You’re nothing but a name-caller. You’re a cheap-shot artist,” Rivera shouted at Bongino.
And that was about the nicest thing Rivera had to say. After more heated back-and-forth, Rivera finally blew a gasket.
“You son of a b*tch!” Rivera yelled, before calling Bongino a “punk.” Bongino responded by telling Rivera that he “wouldn’t tell me that to my face.”

Rivera has long had a reputation for intensity on the air — though this is probably the first time he’s cussed somebody out. But Bongino has been a New York City police officer, so he was speaking from experience, while Rivera has no such experience in the field. Clearly, that didn’t sit so well with Rivera.
