It turns out Geraldo Rivera is no fan of former Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
Rivera has butted heads with other Fox hosts in the past, including fellow contributor Greg Gutfeld, who disliked Rivera’s “out of touch” remarks surrounding his plan to purchase an electric Bentley:

As many likely know, Carlson was abruptly ousted from Fox News on Monday afternoon.
“FOX News Media and Tucker Carlson have agreed to part ways. We thank him for his service to the network as a host and prior to that as a contributor,” reads the company’s press release, which addressed the matter quite briefly.
The Western Journal reported that some have speculated that Carlson’s potentially forced exit from the network related to its $787 million settlement with Dominion Voting Systems over claims made about the company’s voting software and hardware allowing for massive voter fraud to take place in the 2020 presidential election.
As the outlet pointed out, Carlson was ironically one of the first hosts to demand evidence for such claims on his show.
Other reports have suggested that Carlson’s Christian faith may have put off Fox Corp. chair Rupert Murdoch, with his former fiancee Ann Lesley Smith allegedly harboring similar beliefs.
Rivera does not appear to be one of Carlson’s many admirers, as was seen in a recent Twitter post in which he wrote, “I don’t wish ill on anybody, but there is no doubt-as I said at the time-Tucker Carlson’s perverse January 6 conspiracy theory was ‘bulls***.’”
He added, “Having lost the election President Trump incited an insurrection that sought to undermine our Constitutional process.”
This led to Gutfeld and Rivera having a disagreement once again, with Gutfeld responding, “You’re a class act Geraldo. A real man of the people.”

Geraldo drew responses from other detractors as well:
You need to seek help! It’s shameful the media refuses to report the truth!
