Sunny Southern California

by Geraldo Rivera | Mar 16, 2016

Hello from sunny Southern California where I'm about to begin rehearsals for ‪#‎DancingWithTheStars‬. So far it's been very challenging and way outside my wheelhouse, if you get my drift.

Even though I am out here to dance, I've got a couple of things to say. First of all in terms of last night's primary elections, folks just have to stop moaning and groaning about their candidates. Donald Trump is the de facto nominee of the GOP. Hillary Clinton is the presumptive nominee of the Democratic Party.

Those are your only two choices. Hold your nose if you have to and then vote for the candidate of your choice. But trust me Honest Abe is not going to throw his hat in the ring.

Incidentally, I hope you don't have to hold your nose to vote for the beautiful and talented Edyta Sliwinska and her literally lame and ancient dance partner (me) on ‪#‎DWTS‬. I would appreciate your support and God knows I'm going to need it.

he other thing on my mind is the Mid East. With all due respect to ‪#‎POTUS‬ his policy is incomprehensible. Why are we supporting Saudi Arabia's criminal bombing of civilians in Yemen? We condemn ‪#‎Russia‬ bombing civilians in ‪#‎Syria‬. ‪#‎Putin‬ has out smarted us. More importantly, he has helped the situation for innocent civilians by forcing Assad and the rebels to accept a ceasefire. President Obama has to get over his obsession with Assad and regime change.

Let the Syrians figure out their next government. Our job is to stop the violence and stop the tidal wave of refugees pouring into Europe and the world.

I know these are a curious mix of topics but I woke up here with my head exploding with things I had to say. Thx

And remember on #DWTS vote early and often.
