Fox Business host Charles Payne nearly lost it on Geraldo Rivera after the two sparred over a video showing air raid sirens being heard as President Biden made a surprise visit to Ukraine earlier this week.
Payne called the incident “phony.”
CNN described the scene as such:
The president of the United States, in overcoat and shades, strolled through Kyiv in daylight, visiting a historic church as air raid sirens wailed and standing exposed alongside President Volodymyr Zelensky in the city’s vast, open and iconic St. Michael’s Square.
However, CNN reporter Alex Marquardt noted that the air raid sirens had been silent for days and only started blaring upon Biden’s visit.
“I’ve been here for the past five days,” Marquardt stated. “I have not heard any explosions, I have not heard any explosions until about half an hour ago, right when President Biden was in the center of Kyiv.”

Marquardt’s comments left some people speculating if the air raid sirens during Biden’s visit to Kyiv were performance art. Count Payne among those who think it was for show.
“The only thing I did not like about President Biden’s visit was the air raid sirens. That was the most phony baloney stuff,” he claimed.
Rivera countered that Ukraine had “lost 100,000 people,” but Payne was not dissuaded from calling it “Hollywood junk.”

Rivera accused Payne of taking an unnecessary “partisan jab.”
“Russia was notified that Biden was coming,” Payne shouted. “Do you think Russia was gonna drop a bomb on President Biden?!”
Rivera insisted Payne was incorrect in saying Russia was notified ahead of time, which is false.
ABC News reported that the United States alerted Russia to President Biden’s trip “hours before he arrived.”
Russia knew Biden was Ukraine! Air Raid Alarm sounded as a symbolic recognition of Biden being there with Zelenskyy. You didn’t see people scrambling for safety! But Geraldo Rivera didn’t like Charles Payne calling out the truth to him about the visit and what was fake, etc! pic.twitter.com/AYceFpOF6G

Payne Rips NYC Mayor Eric Adams
Charles Payne has been on an absolute tear in recent days. And he does so with charm, a rapier wit, and uber-fashionable suits to boot.
He thoroughly shredded Eric Adams earlier this week when the New York City mayor criticized Florida Governor Ron DeSantis during a recent visit to his city.
“Welcome to NYC,” Adams tweeted, “a place where we don’t ban books, discriminate against our LGBTQ+ neighbors, use asylum seekers as props, or let the government stand between a woman and health care.”
The snide tweet continued: “We’re happy to teach you something about values while you’re here.”
Welcome to NYC, @GovRonDeSantis, a place where we don’t ban books, discriminate against our LGBTQ+ neighbors, use asylum seekers as props, or let the government stand between a woman and health care.
We’re happy to teach you something about values while you’re here. https://t.co/o2CgOt1SES

Adams and DeSantis have publicly sparred after the Republican governor began demanding New York City live up to their self-proclaimed reputation as a ‘sanctuary city’ by bussing illegal immigrants there.
Payne metaphorically murdered Adams over the comments, starting with the city’s education system.
“Let’s start with ‘a place where you don’t ban books,’” Payne fired back. “You might as well ban them in New York City, because our kids can’t read. Ban them and burn them, because you don’t teach our kids how to read. What the hell good are books in the first place?”

As for the LGBTQABCXYZ community, Payne says everybody he knows is making a beeline for Florida every chance they can.
“LGBTQ — I don’t know any member of my family, friends, that LGBTQ — first minute they get, they’re off to Florida,” Payne added.
“They leave New York for Florida every weekend, they’ll slip out on a Friday and come back on a Saturday. Are you kidding me? Yeah, [Florida] is a big, bad spooky place, give me a break on that one.”
Anyone else tired of the bullshit? https://t.co/umNxeLmO55

Payne also slammed Adams over his hypocrisy when it comes to illegal immigrants.
“Soon as they go to the richest places in America — New York City, Martha’s Vineyard — ‘We can’t afford them, we’re afraid, we’re clutching our pearls, how dare they send these people up here?’” he said.
Florida is among the top destinations for people currently fleeing blue states like New York.

Please stay where you are and don’t come down here. We don’t need the New York democRats here. We have a wonderful state and a fantastic Governor. And we don’t need your crap here.
Like SHRILL-ERY taking sniper on landing in Bosnia. LOL. The “EMBELLISHER IN CHIEF” continues his exploits in his pea sized Brain
Air raid sirens were staged , Zelinsky is as phony as Bernie Madoff
Geraldo , who looks good for his age . is simply not very smart , ask Al Capone
Since I am from Texas and am not allowed to carry a sidearm in New York I will never set foot in that state. Why go somewhere that has a distinct possibility of being robbed (or shot) and not be able to defend myself? Same thing goes with Illinois. I realize the entire state of New York or Illinois are not corrupt, mainly New York City and Chicago but I am not taking any chances.
If Fox News fires Brett Bair and replaces him with Charles Payne, I’ll go back to watching Fox News.
I wish they would.
Charles Payne is a true patriot, totally admire his voice to tell the truth about what is happening in blue states. Sanctuary cities are the biggest problem in our country because they can’t handle the amount of illegals that are coming into our country. Therefore they expect other states should voluntarily allow illegals into their communities and it’s not right, we should not be forced to accept them.
Florida need to ban these New Yorker! Since they always voted democrats! Who would want someone living next door that keeps voting for EVIL DEMOCRAT?
I wish we could ban them. Many remain hard core democrats. They sorry about their money and nothing else.
Charles Payne is right on these Liberal people should start telling the truth instead of lying like there Senile, pathetic president.
