Fox News pundit Geraldo Rivera, one of President Trump's most adamant defenders, has slammed Trump's response to the presidential election. In a tweet over the weekend, Rivera said that Trump had acted like an "entitled frat boy" since losing a "bitterly contested election."
"For almost 4 years I’ve supported @realDonaldTrump who was assailed by leftist creeps who conjured the Russia Hoax to wreck his presidency," Rivera wrote. "Nevertheless he prevailed. Sadly he lost a bitterly contested election. S**t happens. However, since he has behaved like an entitled frat boy."

Rivera has been a supporter of Trump throughout his presidency. However, he has been critical of Trump's attempts to contest the election by making unfounded claims of widespread voter fraud.
“That is so dishonest,” Rivera said during a segment about voter fraud earlier this month. “We have litigated this for six weeks! Twice the Supreme Court of the United States rejected it!"
A week earlier, Rivera said: “I don’t mean to be petty or partisan. I just want you to know that as his friend — even if he may not be speaking to me right now because of my position on the election being over."
And a week ago on Twitter, Rivera added: "Time to stop playing around with the Constitution. Biden won. Trump lost. Stop acting like spoiled brats. Or worse, the lunatic fringe. Enough. Basta."
Despite the electoral college confirming President-elect's Biden victory earlier this month, President Trump and a group of Republican lawmakers are betting on a guaranteed-to-fail effort to overthrow the election results on Jan. 6. Several Republican Senators are expected to rebel against Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and contest the electoral college result in some states.
Senate Majority Whip John Thune has predicted that any such effort will “go down like a shot dog” in the Senate. McConnel has warned Republican senators not to take part in the effort, which would force a high-profile vote that would not change the outcome.
