On this morning's Fox and Friends, talk show host Geraldo Rivera blamed Trayvon Martin's shooting on his attire, saying his hoodie was as much responsible for his death as George Zimmerman was.

"I am urging the parents of black and Latino particularly to not let their children go out wearing hoodies," Rivera told his unfazed Fox News colleagues.

He went on to claim that the hoodie bears negative connotations that cannot be "rehabilitated."

"I bet you money," said Rivera, upping the audacity ante, "[I]f [Martin] didn’t have that hoodie on that nutty neighborhood watch guy wouldn’t have responded in that violent and aggressive way."
