During a contentious interview with protesters outside the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera got doused with water.
The Daily Beast’s Andrew Desiderio posted a video clip of the incident on Tuesday afternoon.
The former talk show host was hustled away by his bodyguards as the crowd chanted “Shame! Shame! Shame!”
Rivera has tangled with demonstrators before while reporting live from racially charged protests.
The longtime Fox News contributor spoke out against former Fox anchor Gretchen Carlson‘s sexual harassment suit earlier this month.
Prior to Ailes’ resignation, Rivera wrote on Twitter, “Don’t believe the crap about #RogerAiles. Only ones talking dirt are those who hate #FoxNews & want to hurt network that’s kicking their ass.”
Bizarrely, Rivera attempted to defend Ailes from accusations of sexual harassment by comparing him to the bear that mauled Leonardo diCaprio’s character in the film The Revenant.
“I’ve known him 40 years. He’s about as flirty as the grizzly in #TheRevenant. I stand with Roger Ailes,” he tweeted.

Ex-Reagan adviser nails why white evangelicals flock to Trump in devastating takedown of fake Christians
Why do evangelicals — or at least, white ones — love President Donald Trump so much? Why do they stick by a president who has barely even read the Bible, has defiled marriage, and embodies the antithesis of so much of what their churches preach? Why, according to polls, did they essentially decide overnight that it's no longer important for a president to have strong personal morals to be an effective leader?
Trump biographer drops the hammer on the president in epic rant: ‘He’s a bigot’
On MSNBC's "Up with David Gura," Bloomberg News executive editor and MSNBC commentator Tim O'Brien laid into President Donald Trump's racist attacks on Democratic women of color.
As O'Brien pointed out, the proof that the president is a racist lies not just in what he said, but how he responded to public anger over it.
"There's a hesitance to call it what it is, and there shouldn't be any hesitation," said O'Brien, who authored TrumpNation: The Art of Being the Donald. "The president is a racist. The president is a bigot. By any standard we use to decide whether or not someone is acting is a racist. He ticks off every single one of those boxes ... It's in the fact pattern. There's a long history of this from him that predated his arrival in the White House."
Nazis ‘feed off of’ Trump’s statements: MSNBC law enforcement analyst warns of the president inciting violence
An MSNBC law enforcement analyst warned of President Donald Trump inciting violence with his racist targeting of women of color in Congress.
Anchor Joy Reid interviewed Jim Cavanaugh, a retired ATF special agent-in-charge on Friday evening's "The Last Word."
"So those threats beginning about two years ago, increases in white nationalist activity. Have you ever heard of these kinds of increases in hate and potential hate crimes being tied to a president of the United States?" Reid asked.
"No," he replied. "That’s very, very unusual, Joy, to have that happen."
"You know, when you get more power, your words carry more weight. When you get into this undercurrent of the Nazis and the white nationalists and the klansmen, they feed off of this. They feed off of public figures -- on the regular media, in the government, congressmen, senators, the president -- saying the things they always say," he explained. "It bolsters them. It gives them strength and power."
