Geraldo Rivera, a regular TV personality on Fox News, explains on his radio show why he posted the almost nude selfie of himself to Twitter on Sunday.
Rivera was asked by television personality Eric Bolling, “What were you thinking?”
River replied, “There I was, 2:30 in the morning on Sunday morning. You know, I do the show Saturday night, I did a great show on black-on-black crime and race relations and the Trayvon Martin fallout and federal charges … and I get home and there’s no one to talk to, everyone’s asleep. And you just sit around, I had a drink and, you know, I had taken that picture Saturday morning and I was looking at it, just going through and I said ‘you know, I gotta tweet this thing. I look pretty good for a 70-year-old.’
Rivera went on to explain that he didn’t think anybody would take the selfie seriously due to his age. The image was removed from Rivera’s Twitter feed, reports the New York Post.
