Some Fox News hosts that identified as Trump supporters are jumping ship.
Viewers are not happy.
And this Fox News star jut did the unthinkable with one major betrayal of Donald Trump.
As American Patriot Daily reports:
“The Five” co-host Geraldo Rivera is one of the left-leaning personalities on the network.
It’s a tough time for liberals as polls show the American people blame Joe Biden for the supply chain crisis, the inflation crisis, the border crisis and the botched withdrawal from Afghanistan and his approval ratings plummeted to 42 percent in the Real Clear Politics polling average.
The economy is always the number one issue in every election and so inflation poses the biggest threat to Joe Biden’s approval rating and – thus – the Democrats’ grip on power in 2022.
Geraldo Rivera was one of the many liberals that settled on making lemonade out of lemons by creating an alternate reality where inflation was really a good thing that benefited Americans by causing employers to pay higher wages.
“This may sound crazy,” Rivera stated, “but talking about good things, inflation is partly a good thing in the sense that it’s forcing employers to pay employees more money. So people are making more money, they can demand better pay, so that inflates the cost, the owner has to pass the price on to the consumer.”
Rivera’s claim that inflation actually benefited Americans gobsmacked co-host Jesse Watters.
Watters returned the conversation to this universe by pointing out that inflation was not just a one-way street and that wages rose because prices skyrocketed which meant any pay raise quickly evaporated.
“But the wage gains are being wiped out by inflation,” Watters added, “so you’re not seeing the benefit of that.”
The facts on the ground bear Watters out.
In September, the jobs report showed wages increased by 3.3 percent.
But inflation skyrocketed 5.4 percent meaning that Americans ended up with a more than two percent cut in pay.
Watters pointed out that in the last election Donald Trump warned Americans that Joe Biden’s socialist agenda would turn America into Venezuela pointing out “how Trump closed in the election. He says ‘Joe Biden and his radical puppeteers want to turn this country into Venezuela.’ What do we have, Geraldo? We have high gas prices, we’ve got high crime, we’ve got corruption, we have empty shelves, political prosecutions, and then I remember how Joe Biden closed his campaign. What did he say? He says, ‘I’m not going to shut down the economy. I’m going to shut down the virus.’ Well, what did he do? There’s been more people that died from COVID-19 under Joe Biden than under Trump, and the economic recovery is sputtering.”
The left has no positive message to communicate about Joe Biden’s failed socialist agenda so Rivera and his fellow travelers are trying to gaslight the American people into thinking that inflation and supply chain backlogs are really the best thing that ever happened to them.
