Bitter Geraldo makes a jerk of himself over lost syndication

Geraldo Rivera is trying to replace the late Dick Clark as the world’s oldest teenager – on Twitter anyway.

geraldo1217Not only does the 70-year-old have a weakness for tweeting half-naked selfies, he’s got a high school kid’s vocabulary when it comes to his competition.

Rivera is losing his national radio syndication Jan. 1, including KABC in Los Angeles, one of the country’s biggest radio markets.

On Monday, syndicated shock jock Tom Leykis took to the airwaves to make fun of the former newsman

And Rivera struck back like the high schooler he is at heart – cafeteria language and all.

Onanism aside, it sounds like Geraldo thinks “Rush wannabe” is supposed to be an insult in the radio trade.

Is there a radio talk show host in America who isn’t a “Rush wannabe”? As far as insults go, that’s like calling a professional golfer a “Tiger wannabe.”

During his next dark night of the soul, Rivera might want to hold off on the bourbon-and-ginger topless photos and ponder whether there are any “Geraldo-wannabes” out there.  (Hint: There aren’t. Not sane ones, anyway.)

Leykis quickly hit back.

And the #LeykisArmy piled on.

If Geraldo’s got accuracy problems, one tweet hinted at why.

Al Capone’s vault was a long time ago. Geraldo’s career should have stayed there.
