Geraldo Rivera Views Ted Cruz's 'New York Values' Statement As Anti-Semitic

On the O'Reilly Factor on Thursday night, Fox News correspondent Geraldo Rivera spoke about Ted Cruz's comment on "New York values." In addition, he predicted Cruz would have a big loss in New York.

Rivera said, "Aside from the stinking anti-Semitic implications that I see in that whole ‘New York values’ money- and media-coated message that he put out there pandering to those Iowa voters, he also voted against Hurricane Sandy relief. He also voted against compensation for 9/11 victims. This is a man whose interests are absolutely antithetical to New York."

O'Reilly defended Cruz saying he didn't see his comments as anti-Semitic. O'Reilly stated, "If he says ‘New York values’ to a bunch of Evangelicals, it's not anti-Semitic." Rivera argued, "He could have very easily said that. There's a million ways he could have said that that he did not."

CNN analyst Jeffrey Toobin told Wofl Blitzer, "He said New York values are about money and they're about the media. That's an anti-Semitic trope from a hundred years. It's been around for a very long time. Money and media is Jews. I mean this is just an old-fashioned, anti-Semitic stereotype, derogatory term and everybody understands it."

Both Trump and Kasich have been using Cruz's statements to bring votes their way.

According to recent polling, Cruz is currently trailing Trump and Kasich in New York. Cruz defended his statements on "Good Morning America" on Thursday saying "It is people like Mayor Bill de Blasio. It is people like Gov. Cuomo."
