After Fox News personality Geraldo Rivera defended Matt Lauer after Lauer's firing for sexual assault, the internets gave new life to an interview Bette Midler gave where she says Geraldo and his producer drugged her and sexually assaulted her in the 70s (yes, groping is sexual assault).

Geraldo is a big supporter of Roger Ailes, Bill O'Reilly, and Donald Trump - all of whom have been accused of sexual assault themselves. Birds of a feather.

Hahahaha! Geraldo could have ANY woman back in the 70s. Why would he want Bette Midler?

Rivera left the world hanging about whether Bette Midler was great in bed, refusing to answer Cain's very cool "how was she" question due to Midler's decidedly negative reaction at hearing that she had been publicly included on his list of conquests.

Also, interesting that Rivera tweeted this earlier

I don't know about this particular drugging and groping claim, however Geraldo has always claimed that he was no saint.

Maybe for the same reason he supports Bill O'Reilly and Donald Trump - he's a simpleminded imbecile with terrible judgment and no taste whatsoever.

BINGO!!!! Good thing nobody espousing liberal ideas or supporting liberal causes have been caught up in any of this sexual depravity that's dominating the news.

The Cons are on the run!!!!

Bette Midler describes perfectly why we are seeing all these long-delayed accusations.

She gave this interview 16 years ago and it was a big shrug, as it would have been in the '70's when it occurred.

Men kept up their deplorable behavior as there were no consequences.

In this case I feel sorry for Geraldo Rivera, I mean Bette Midler.

Give the man some compensation, therapy and a bravery medal.

Well, they both admit to having an affair, so there's that. She claimed the sex wasn't all that great, ouch.

Back in the day, Midler had big boobies (haven't actually seen her in about 20 years) and was known to shake them around. Her reputation was "bawdy." Rivera had a lot of hair back in his Willowbrook days (Willowbrook was his first big news story) when he worked in NYC for WABC and had a reputation as quite the Cassanova. Don't look for a victim in that story.

Here's what Rivera (he was always short) looked like in the early 1970s:
