Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera expressed outrage over claims President Donald Trump is mentally unfit for office, calling the accusations “slander” on “Fox and Friends” Friday.
“It is a slander, it is low-down and dirty. It is absolutely false. This man is as lucid and as intelligent and as intellectually in charge of himself as he has ever been,” Rivera said.
Rivera based his statements off personal experiences and said the media’s attacks against Trump were unwarranted and infuriating.
“I heard a commentator on MSNBC yesterday say as a scientific medical fact that there is no doubt that the president emotionally and intellectually has deteriorated from his days as Celebrity Apprentice,” he said. “Not only have I known him for four decades … I spent an hour with him as you’ll recall coming back from Puerto Rico on Air Force One.”
Trump has managed to take an ailing economy and turn it around, Rivera said.
“Donald Trump has jump started the economy in a way that is so impressive that everybody is cheering. There is not a person watching right now who owns a single share of stock who isn’t better off today than they were the day before President Trump took office,” Rivera concluded.
