Layoff Ivanka Trump! Geraldo discusses the appalling treatment of the First Daughter of the United States during her appearance at the round table on the empowerment of women at the invitation of German Chancellor Angela Merkel. Having spent time with Ivanka during the production of Celebrity Apprentice, Geraldo saw firsthand her poise and intelligence and she did not deserve to be booed by the audience. “If you have a problem with POTUS then take it up with him.” Geraldo also talks about the lame protests over Sanctuary Cities. They are not a sanctuary for criminals to hide from the law and should not be characterized that way by critics. Geraldo also talks about what’s going on at the Fox News Channel.
Geraldo responds to Kendrick Lamar’s new album ‘DAMN’ where the popular rapper appears to be throwing shade on his third song “YAH.” The second verse, Lamar names Fox News and Rivera directly: “Fox News wanna use my name for percentage/My latest news in my niece, she’s worth livin/See me on the TV and scream ‘That’s Uncle Kendrick!’/Yeah that’s the business/Somebody tell Geraldo this n*gga got some ambition.” This is no doubt a response to Geraldo’s critique of Lamar’s 2015 BET Awards performance with cop killer lyrics “We hate po-po/Wanna kill us dead in the street fo sho” standing atop a vandalized police car with the American in the background. At the time Geraldo said on ‘The Five’: “this is why I say that hip-hop has done more damage to young African Americans that racism in recent years…. It is so wrong, it is so counterproductive, it gives exactly the wrong message.” Lamar plays the clip on his second song DNA. Geraldo discusses his opinion of the song, the artist and where he stands today,. Listen to the clips.

If Assad is responsible for this atrocity, he should be hunted down, tried for murder and hung if found guilty. Steve Bannon is out and none too soon, as he is likely to be the architect of Trump’s acerbic start as the 45th President. He is more professional and organized with Jared and Ivanka.
