Geraldo discusses MSNBC Host Rachel Maddow's hype over President Donald Trump's 2005 tax returns. Rachel Maddow takes over the mantle of Al Capone's vault with empty claims of a block buster reveal. We compare Maddow's critique of Geraldo's Coverage during the leaked "open mic" scandal with Access Hollywood's Bill Bush.
Geraldo talks about defeating NYC gridlock with his bike, Broadway play Sunday In The Park with George and how the White House press briefing has become must see TV. As Press Secretary Sean Spicer navigates Russia-Gate, he evolves and even self mocks, channeling Melissa McCarthy's SNL skit threatening to chase reporters with his podium when they critique President Trumps tweet boasting 230,000 new jobs. Things get testy though when he defends not properly vetting General Flynn as proof emerges he was a Foreign Agent for Turkey, a country with questionable loyalty to the US. Geraldo updates on the latest immigration news, the rising economy and repealing ObamaCare.
Geraldo examines Obamacare. Are the Republicans in a jam? Is their idea of repeal and replace too slanted toward helping folks who don’t need it? And what about the new Travel ban? Will the new version pass the smell test about banning Muslims? WikiLeaks is preparing their largest dump ever. Who’s looking at you through your smart devices? Finally, if Trump’s phones were tapped who ordered it? The intel community denies they were listening. Can Geraldo go on Trump Thumb Patrol?
Geraldo praises 45’s remarkable speech to Congress as his best to date in terms of manner, tone and substance. It was the speech he should have given at his inauguration. Geraldo speaks about the mission in which Ryan Owens lost his life, has a beef with it called Highly successful considering civilian casualties, the loss of a $75 million dollar aircraft not to mention Ryan’s life, and compares the impact of that mission to Operation Eagle Claw, the failed rescue mission during the Carter administration handling of the Iran Hostage crisis. Geraldo says it is time for the press to stop obsessing over the President, but given the latest revelation that AG Jeff Sessions failed to mention to the Senate Judiciary Committee a meeting with a Russian diplomat, that is unlikely.
President Trump goes off on Fake News at CPAC. Geraldo looks at the danger of Press Secretary Sean Spicer's selective press briefing, and ensuing boycott by major news publications; sends condolences to dearly departed colleagues Alan Combs and Brenda Burner and compliments the Presidential Cabinet's handling of the immigration crisis despite the angry rhetoric.
As President Trump’s Executive order on immigration goes into effect, Geraldo talks about how we came to this point. The border becoming an issue after 9/11, outrage when two pretty teenage girls were killed in a 2007 DUI crash by an undocumented immigrant in Virginia Beach prompting his emotional debate with Factor host Bill O’Reilly over sanctuary cities and his book “HisPanic: Why Americans Fear Hispanics in the U.S.” And Geraldo contemplates what will happen when authorities attempt to round up 10 million illegals? Geraldo also talks about the latest spate of anti-Semitic attacks and President Trumps response.
Geraldo discusses President Trump’s wild Wednesday press conference, Trump’s accusations of Fake News to major media groups, the Russian connection, the President’s defense of perceived “Chaos” in the White House, his first Latino cabinet pick and Geraldo grades the 45th Presidents’ to date performance. Geraldo also talks about his feisty appearance with Bill O’Reilly on the Fox News Channel’s O’Reilly Factor where he spars with the host about leaks to the press in the Trump administration.
Geraldo examines the reason behind the latest flurry of ICE raids against "Illegal Aliens." Are they really rounding up drug dealers, murders and domestic abuser, or did the agents go after softer targets like Guadalupe García de Rayos, 36, a mother of two who has been here since she was 14-years-old. Arrested when she checked in with her parole officer as she had done since 2008 for the minor offense of using a fake social security number in order to provide for her family. Are these arrests retaliation on areas taking a stance on Sanctuary cities? Also, General Michael Flynn resigns when it is revealed he mislead Vice President Pence about talks with the Russian Ambassador. Did he also Mislead President Obama while he was still in office about his Russian connection?
