Geraldo Rivera RESIGNS – Fans Stunned

Share This Story

Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera shocked everyone this week when he resigned from his position as an associate fellow of Calhoun College at Yale University over the weekend.

Rivera reportedly made the decision after Yale announced plans to rename the college because of former Vice President John C. Calhoun’s support for slavery. He took to Twitter to explain his decision on Sunday, citing the school’s “intolerant insistence on political correctness.”

Western Journalism reported that Calhoun was Vice President of the United States from 1825 to 1832. He also was a U.S. Senator and a Secretary of State before his death in 1850. Yale announced the decision to change the name of the Calhoun School on Saturday.

“I made this decision because I think it is the right thing to do on principle,” Yale University President Peter Salovey said. “John C. Calhoun’s principles, his legacy as an ardent supporter of slavery as a positive good, are at odds with this university.”

Rivera further explained his decision in a series of Tweets.
