Geraldo Rivera preps for dump on Fox News via ‘The View’ after being fired: ‘Will I be angry and bitter?’

Former Fox News host Geraldo Rivera, who was fired from “The Five” and then quit the network in a snit, is promoting another one of his big reveals and this time it will be via “The View” on Thursday, after asking his followers, “Will I be angry and bitter?”

Rivera, 80, is making the media rounds, puffing himself up after leaving Fox News. He will also appear on Chris Cuomo’s NewsNation show this week, according to The Hill. It will be his first prime-time interview since leaving Fox News.

He took to Twitter in a video as he rode the waters off the coast of West Hampton Beach and in typical fashion, hyped his appearance on “The View,” tweeting, “Another epic boat ride from Hampton Bays, Long Island to Chelsea Piers in Manhattan’s West Side. Heading for #TheView tomorrow. Don’t know whether I’m angry at Fox or excited about the future. I’ll figure it out. Thanks.”

“Heading into New York — another epic occasion,” a scruffy-looking Rivera stated in the video as the wind ruffled his gray locks. “I’ll be doing The View on ABC at 11:00 tomorrow morning, Thursday morning.

“Right now, I’m off the coast of Hampton Beach — it’s a lovely day — the ocean is still relatively flat, still a little bumpy,” he noted.

“The issue for me is, what’s my message when I get to The View? Will I be angry and bitter over being fired from Fox News, from The Five? Will I be resigned to my future? Will I know what my future holds? It’s a very exciting time to be doing The View because, the day before, I still don’t know the answers to the questions — the life questions that I’m posing,” Rivera mused.

“But I’d appreciate it if you’d watch — wish you were here on the mighty vessel Belle. I’m going about 25 knots; about 27, 28 miles per hour. Beautiful day — it’s supposed to get a bit windier a little later, but for now, it’s gorgeous. Wish you were here. Thank you,” he said concluding the video.

This is Rivera’s second nautical video since he left Fox News at the end of June. Following his getting the ax on “The Five,” he quit the network after being there for 23 years.

An Associated Press interview with Rivera called him “one of the lonely liberal voices on The Five” and asserted there was “tension” between him and co-host Greg Gutfeld as being a possible reason for his getting the boot.

Rivera said his goodbyes in a final appearance on “Fox & Friends,” where he got a warm send-off. He did not miss the chance to brag about his 50-year career that began with the help of affirmative action, taking a swipe at the Supreme Court for nixing it.

“When the Ford Foundation and Columbia Journalism School got together to integrate the local news teams in New York, there were no black reporters, no Hispanic reporters, no women. And it was shocking. And that was as late as 1968, 69. So I was selected. I was making news representing a group of Puerto Rican activists, the Young Lords who had taken over some buildings up in Spanish Harlem. And I was their lawyer and their negotiator. And I made a lot of news as their spokesperson. And so I got discovered that way, and they drafted me through the Columbia program, and the rest is history,” Rivera recounted.

Now, it looks as if the former Fox News host is laying the groundwork to stay in the public eye. As a liberal, he is being booked on leftist networks where it appears he will elevate himself while taking digs at Fox News. Rivera evidently still craves the limelight so he will no doubt still be a fixture on numerous shows.

Twitter users are not waiting with bated breath to hear Rivera slam his former employer:
