It is the battle of the former Fox News hosts as Geraldo Rivera has taken aim at Tucker Carlson over an interview he did with comedian Russel Brand.

Rivera accused Carlson of being “full of s**t” with his comments on Ukraine and compared it to his comments on January 6.

Tucker made his comments to Brand as he praised former President Donald Trump for his stance on the Russia and Ukraine conflict.

“I’m struck by his foreign policy views,” he said. “Trump is the only person with stature in the Republican Party, really, who is saying, ‘wait a second … why are we supporting an endless war in Ukraine?'”

“I’m so grateful that he has the position,” he said. “He’s right, and everyone in Washington is wrong … Trump is right on that question … He is saying true things about Ukraine and God bless him.”

Those comments had Rivera furious with his fellow former Fox News host.

“Due respect to Tucker Carlson, but he’s as full of shit about Ukraine as he was about January 6th. His smiley face doesn’t change fact Russia invaded sovereign Ukraine; 1000’s are dead, including women & children, the world order is assailed and Putin is a punk,” he said on Twitter.

Carlson said he did not know why he was axed from Fox News, but he suspects that his views on the Russia and Ukraine war played a role.

“I don’t know why I was fired. I really don’t. I’m not angry about it. I wish Fox well,” he said to the host.

He said that the war is a “red line for a lot of people in business and politics.”

“The US could force peace like tonight. They could. Uniquely, they have that power, and they won’t, and they are continuing to allow Ukrainians to be killed and that country to be devastated,” he said. “If you criticize that, they are really intent on making you be quiet.”

As for Geraldo, he departed from Fox News last week and his send off was not the same as the one given to Tucker.

On Friday Rivera made what is supposed to be his final appearance on the network when he was on “Fox & Friends” and the show aired a celebration for him.

It included network hosts and personalities praising Rivera and telling him how much they appreciated him.

They then had a cake for him, brought his brother on the show and gave him a standing ovation.

Some fans of Twitter juxtaposed Rivera’s departure with the unceremonious axing for former primetime host Tucker Carlson.

“No party hats and balloons when Tucker left. What a crap organization,” one person wrote on Twitter.

“The greatest narcissist on TV retires. Good riddance!” wrote another.

“Geraldo gets a cake and Tucker gets his integrity,” said another user.

“Yuk.. Fox News honors Geraldo with a glowing tribute…. Yet Tucker and Bongino get the middle finger from FOX NEWS Right back at ya, Fox News!” another user said, adding a pair of middle fingers. “RIP Fox News.”

And it came after Rivera announced that he had been fired from “The Five” and then said he quit the network because of it.

“Bumpy day on the North Atlantic. Anyway, I got fired from @TheFive so I quit Fox. After 23 years tomorrow Fox and Friends could be my last appearance on the network. Thanks for the memories,” he said in the caption of a video posted to Twitter.

“So it doesn’t look like I’m going to be on The Five. I mean, I’m not going to be on The Five. I’ve been fired from The Five, and as a result of that, I quit Fox. So I’ll have more to say about that on Fox and Friends tomorrow morning,” he said in the video.
