Geraldo Rivera, the controversial Fox News reporter, recently made a blunder on live television that has left many viewers scratching their heads. During a discussion about gun control on Fox & Friends, Rivera attempted to explain the differences between an AR-15 and a shotgun. However, he made a major mistake when he asked what the “AR” stands for in AR-15.
Rivera was quickly corrected by co-host Steve Doocy, who explained that the “AR” stands for “ArmaLite Rifle,” the name of the company that first developed the weapon. Rivera was clearly embarrassed by the mistake, and he quickly apologized for not knowing the answer.
The mistake has since become a meme, with many people on social media sharing jokes and mocking Rivera’s lack of knowledge. The incident has also led to a renewed debate about gun control, with many people arguing that Rivera’s mistake highlights the need for more comprehensive gun control measures.
Rivera has since apologized for the mistake, saying that he should have done more research before attempting to explain the differences between the two weapons. However, the damage has already been done, and Rivera’s mistake has become a lesson in why it’s important to be well-informed before discussing sensitive topics.
