Geraldo needs to shake down Comrade de Blasio.
Fox News personality and NBC “Celebrity Apprentice” runner-up Geraldo Rivera has an idea for Donald Trump: Make amends for calling some Mexican immigrants “rapists” by paying to repair New York’s subway system.
Trump caused controversy in June when he said many of the immigrants who come across the U.S. southern border are “rapists.” The remark came during his announcement that he will seek the Republican presidential nomination.
In the aftermath, Macy’s, Univision and NBC Universal cut business ties with Trump. Then, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said his administration would reevaluate any business dealings the city has with Trump.
In an email to the Washington Examiner media desk, Rivera recalled public works Trump completed in New York — the total renovation of the Wollman skating rink, for example — and said the White House hopeful could redeem himself by paying to complete a long-delayed subway project.
“As reparation and recompense for his offensive remarks I think he should volunteer to finish our long-delayed, over-budget, never-ending 2nd Avenue Subway project, which has baffled numerous administrations and has been pending for at least a century,” Rivera said.
