Fox News is undergoing massive changes as the network sees the first decline in ratings for years after the sudden firing of network star Tucker Carlson.
While the network searches for a replacement for Carlson, Fox News employees have been rallying around their ousted friend.
All except one.
Geraldo Rivera came out with a blistering denunciation of Carlson that did not sit well with many, including Greg Gutfeld.
Gutfeld publicly chastised Geraldo for taking a cheap shot at Carlson.
As Slay News reported earlier, Rivera came clean yesterday and said he was taken off ‘The Five.’
Geraldo suggested that he had been “canceled” temporarily but rumors have been swirling that he’s “off for good.”
Gutfeld co-hosts “The Five” and many speculated Geraldo’s benching was because of the feud between the two that erupted after Carlson’s firing.
Last night, speaking on his other hit show, “Gutfeld!,” the anchor gave new life to the rumors while reminding Rivera who’s boss.
Gutfeld said last night, “This is the best late-night show in America because it’s the only late-night show in America.
“I’ll take it I don’t care.”
Gutfeld was talking about the Hollywood writer’s strike that knocked Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, and others off the air.
“So today senior intel officials testified on Capitol Hill on worldwide threats,” Gutfeld continued.
“Among the topics; China, Russia, Iran, artificial intelligence, and also Geraldo removing his shirt in front of children.”
An unflattering image of Rivera appeared on the screen as he mocked Geraldo.

Geraldo said yesterday:
“My appearances today and tomorrow on The Five have been canceled.
“I’m sure there’s a good reason. Never fear, I’ll be back week after next.
“Stay safe and happy. Thanks.”
But on April 26, days after the announcement of Carlson’s was fired by Fox News, Geraldo said:
“I don’t wish ill on anybody, but there is no doubt as I said at the time-Tucker Carlson’s perverse January 6 conspiracy theory was bullsh*t.
“Having lost the election President Trump incited an insurrection that sought to undermine our Constitutional process,” Geraldo falsely claimed.
Gutfeld quickly put Geraldo in his place.
He said: “You’re a class act Geraldo.
“A real man of the people.”

The President of News Cycle Media Jon Nicosia believes Geraldo is finished on “The Five” and his days may be numbered at Fox News.
“Word is you are ‘off for good.’
“After ‘destroying the chemistry with recent Tweets.’”
