From the September 27 special post-debate edition of Fox News' Hannity:
GERALDO RIVERA: I hated that [Donald Trump] brought you into [the debate]. I really do.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Why?
RIVERA: Because I love you and I don't want you to be fodder for the people that are going to chop you up.
HANNITY: Listen, listen, listen, you know what I do for a living? I dish it out four hours a day, Geraldo. I'll take any shot anybody wants to take. But here's the thing --
RIVERA: Using you as his alibi? Come on.
HANNITY: But I will tell you this -- well it's not an alibi. He would call me. We used to have knock down, drag out friendly battles over Iraq, he thinking I was wrong.
