Geraldo Unleashes the Worst JFK Impression Ever (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Jan 21st 2011 4:05PM
Geraldo Rivera was on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on Fox News) where he discussed the controversial eight-hour, $30 million TV miniseries 'The Kennedys,' which The History Channel spiked and Showtime passed on, allegedly because of complaints from the Kennedy family.

According to Geraldo, the Kennedy's objected to a storyline that focused on the family's "rowdy, sex-obsessed nature." To demonstate the tone of miniseries, Geraldo read a racy line from the script, in what was supposed to sound like the voice of John F. Kennedy.

"I love lobster. But not every night. If I don't get some strange ass every couple days I get migraines," Geraldo imitated, displaying hints of both a British and Southern accent, but nothing remotely close to JFK's iconic -- and not particularly hard to imitate -- upper-crust Boston accent.

That this reading may be the closest 'The Kennedys' ever comes to being aired on TV made Geraldo's woeful JFK impression all the more sad.
