MARTHA MACCALLUM (HOST): Geraldo, let me start with you first. Do you think the attack on Pete Buttigieg was fair or unfair?
GERALDO RIVERA (GUEST): Well, I think that it's a fact, Martha, that he has failed to integrate the police department in South Bend, IN. That he's failed to get the cops there to turn on their body cams, you just saw the tragic result of that. The people in the Black one-third of South Bend has apparently turned against the mayor. He's had an incredible run, Mayor Pete has. But I think that the rubber has met the road. And it seems to me that unless he can turn this around, obviously his candidacy will hit South Carolina and end there. It just seems to me -- he's not being accepted by the African-American community. If you can't go Black, you can't go back.
