While it’s early in the 2024 presidential cycle, Geraldo Rivera is already warning Americans that Donald Trump is an extreme boogeyman with mythical powers to fell America — the talking points sound as if the Fox News contributor spends more time watching rival cable news networks than his own.
With pearls in hand, Rivera took to Twitter to speculate what “mischief” private citizen Trump can inflict upon the U.S. should he lose his presidential bid. Rivera does a bit of fence riding though when he suggests a Trump win would not be dangerous because he “wasn’t a terrible president.”
“The danger of Donald Trump running for president is not if he wins (he wasn’t a terrible president and until his attempted coup he was even underrated). The danger to America comes if Trump again loses. Stymied twice by the system, what mischief would he be capable of inflicting?” Rivera tweeted.

Stymied twice by the system, what mischief would he be capable of inflicting?

The interesting choice of words here being “stymied twice by the system.”
An honest broker would have to admit that the media, Big Tech, and key figures in the U.S. intelligence apparatus considered it their moral duty to oppose Donald Trump in 2020. Is that the “system” Rivera is referring to?
Trump continues to insist the 2020 election was stolen from him, though he failed to convince any court and was unable to produce irrefutable evidence.
At the same time, the former president claims that ballot boxes were stuffed, citing Dinesh D’Souza’s movie, “2000 Mules.” Trump also points to the Twitter Files, which suggests the FBI clearly placed its thumb on the scale in the 2020 election by playing a key role in censoring reporting on Hunter Biden’s infamous laptop from hell that called into question now-President Joe Biden’s role in his son’s dubious business dealings in China and Ukraine. There was also the manipulation of the pandemic in many states, where millions of unsolicited mail-in ballots flooded the playing field and state legislatures were circumvented in some cases to change laws to accommodate this flood of ballots.
Leave it to Geraldo to post a tweet that riles both the left and right — then again, that may be why piling on the Fox News personality is practically a national pastime.
Here’s a quick sampling of responses to the story from Twitter:
You take fence sitting to new levels

If you were on the fence wondering if Geraldo was worth listening to, let the above take be all of the remaining nails in the coffin.

The system invites mischief. Think about it. The very system has come under more an more scrutiny, as well as doubt, since the 2000 election. No politician has worked to eliminate the mischief while creating confidence once again in the system. Why?

It would be great if we could hold a fair and honest Presidential election with zero interference from the news media, social media, the courts, or all of the election-tampering organizations.
Wouldn’t it be nice to have some faith in our election process, pre-2000?

What an idiotic thing to say. @GeraldoRivera isn’t capable of rational thought.
The DOJ is punishing unarmed women who went to the capitol, and Jerry is worried about TRUMP. https://t.co/Dgj7sUuUQt

This makes zero sense. He’s such a danger to democracy if he loses that it’s better that he be given immense powers and responsibilities? https://t.co/GBmIeSA2MO

Dear Young People,
We don’t recommend that you do, but if you do decide to experiment with drugs, please don’t do them by the kilo like Geraldo did.
