Geraldo Rivera has covered wars from the battlefield for over 40 years, but heâ€™s never been more afraid than he was last Friday, when for an hour, he didnâ€™t know if his daughter was still alive in Paris.
â€œIt almost gave me a heart attack,â€ Rivera told TheWrap in an interview on Monday about not being able to get in touch with his 21-year-old daughter Simone, a foreign exchange student in Paris, after news of the terrorist attacks broke.
â€œThis was far worse than anything else Iâ€™ve ever experienced,â€ he continued, calling the fear he felt for his childâ€™s life much scarier than any war heâ€™s ever covered.
After reuniting with his daughter in Paris on Saturday (pictured above) and getting a few days to collect his thoughts, Rivera didnâ€™t mince words about President Obamaâ€™s response to the attacks.â€œI think he is malignantly naive,â€
Rivera said, calling ISIS a de facto nation and directly disagreeing with the president, who has advised Americans not to categorize ISIS as such since thatâ€™s what they want.Obamaâ€™s been too â€œmutedâ€ and â€œnuancedâ€ in reaction to the Paris attacks
, Rivera said. â€œWe need to respond by declaring war on themâ€¦ if we donâ€™t kill them, theyâ€™re going to kill us.â€
He offered specifics, calling for Russia, the U.S. and our Middle East Allies to join forces in a war against ISISâ€“ even if have to drag the latter in â€œkicking and screaming.â€https://www.yahoo.com/tv/s/geraldo-...-141217070.html
Wow, a liberal turning on Obama when his child is affected.
90% of life is "showing up"
