Geraldo Shreds Fox Host Greg Gutfeld During Abortion Debate – Calls Him An ‘Insulting Punk’

A discussion about abortion escalated quickly Wednesday on the Fox News show “The Five,” with pro-choice guest Geraldo Rivera calling out co-host Greg Gutfeld.

Rivera said it was ridiculous that Republicans are more interested in finding out who leaked a draft opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito instead of the impact such a ruling would have on women:

“What this shows is that the Senate confirmation process by which a nominee is interrogated by both parties and give their reasons why they are fit to be on the high court, is absolutely deeply flawed.

“Why? Because these nominees lied. They go before the Senate of the United States, they swear that they are going to be judicious and good shepherds of the court and its impartiality in the importance it has in the American society, and that the stare decisis says, that the precedent of these cases is well established.”

Rivera went on to note that his three daughters live in Ohio, where the governor, Mike DeWine (R) has made it clear he will indeed sign a “fetal heartbeat” bill if Roe v. Wade is overturned by the Supreme Court later this year:

“What am I going to tell my daughters now? That they don’t have control over their body? That they can’t make those choices for themselves?”

Rather than address what Rivera had said, Gutfeld remarked:

“You ask somebody why they’re pro-life, they will say because abortion takes a life and we believe life is sacred. You could disagree with that, but you can’t disagree with the simplicity of it.”

Rivera:

“My body, my choice. How much simpler could you get?”

At that point, Gutfeld chided Rivera:

“Let me finish. You already did your ad hominem.”

When Gutfeld suggested that liberals see abortion as “something to celebrate, to cherish,” Rivera wasn’t having any of it:

“Oh, that’s baloney. That’s baloney.  Cherish the wire hanger stuck up their privates trying to get–”

“This is exactly what I expected,” Gutfeld told Rivera, which led Geraldo to snap back, “You are arrogant.”

Gutfeld:

“Go for it, Geraldo. Come on, keep going. You’re making a fool of yourself.”

Rivera:

“You know something, you insulting punk?”

Gutfeld is indeed an arrogant punk. He’s a typical conservative: Full of vitriol and convinced he’s right about everything when in reality he’s merely full of shit.
