Fox News’ Geraldo Rivera played the race card again on Friday when comparing electoral maps from different presidential elections.
The hosts of “Outnumbered” showed the map of 2016 that appeared more red than it was for the 1996 election of former President Bill Clinton.
Once the map was down, Rivera asked the hosts to put it back on the screen so he could hold court.
“I submit to you that the real colors aren’t red and blue, but white and black. White, black and brown on the other hand,” he said.
“I think that the country is increasingly divided on racial lines. I think politics in this country have become increasingly racial and I think it’s very distressful, and I think the nobel prize winners of the future will be those who bring us in a post-racial …”
The charge stunned his co hosts. “What!?” Someone can be heard saying.
“OK, that is not what this is about,” another panelist who was off screen said.
But he charged on.
“I think that racism is deeply ingrained and easily exacerbated by people who seek to gain an advantage,” he said. “I think the people who can heal it are the unlikely people, like (President) Donald Trump …”
He agreed that Democrats use “compartmentalized politics” more than Republicans but said they won’t help because “they’re so angry.”
Social media lambasted him.
Oh my God Geraldo back with the race and he can say it because he’s neither black nor white he’s brown #outnumbered

Watching Geraldo on Fox at noon. He claims the red blue map is racially motivated. How, then do you explain Maine and NH vote?

@OutnumberedFNC How does the map show black and white! Where did Geraldo come up with that! Seems like coastal elites vs the rest to me!
