On Friday’s edition of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” occasional co-host Geraldo Rivera expressed little sympathy for the families of four Americans murdered by terrorists in Benghazi, Libya.
Panelists were discussing the “drip, drip, drip” of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails, and the scandal that was much of their focus.
“At the end of the dripping, like the fake stand-down order in Benghazi, this will be a fake scandal. It will have done its job…” Rivera started to say.
Meghan McCain, daughter of Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., exploded.
“Benghazi is a fake scandal?” she cut in. “Benghazi is a fake scandal.”
Rivera answered, “Benghazi is a fake scandal in terms of…”

This time Rivera cut McCain off, and the exchange deteriorated into crosstalk.
“Don’t give me that,” Rivera said. “Don’t give me that family stuff.”

Eventually Greg Gutfeld cut in and brought up the anti-Muslim YouTube video that Clinton tried to pawn off on the public and the families of the four fallen Americans as the reason for the Benghazi attack.
Rivera countered that the idea that Clinton and President Barack Obama stood by and did nothing during the attack is a lie.
“The lie is the video,” Gutfeld shot back. “The lie is the video!”
