Bolling's Trolling Catches Up with Him
What a difference a week makes. Last Saturday, Fox’s Eric Bolling was in Las Vegas to sign copies of his book “The Swamp,” speak to members of the Real Chamber of Commerce and unsuspecting bystanders like me.
This Saturday he’s been suspended for texting pictures of his Anthony Weiner to female colleagues. The New York Times reports, Bolling “sent an unsolicited photo of male genitalia via text message to at least two colleagues at Fox Business and one colleague at Fox News.”
Bolling is only 54, but that should be old enough to know, that women don’t want to see that. Big, little, or in-between, they have no interest in seeing what Eric is packing.
Now, Caroline Heldman claims in a facebook post, Bolling called her Dr. McHottie, and, among other things, “took me up to his office in New York, showed me his baseball jerseys, and in the brief time I was there, let me know that his office was his favorite place to have sex. I know other women have had similar experiences with Bolling, which means that lots of folks at Fox knew about his behavior well before 2017.”
What struck me about Bolling, was first, his appearance. For his speaking engagement, he wore white jeans and an untucked way-to-big-for-him dress shirt. His speech provided no information other than to remind us that he wrote a book, with plenty of Trump rah-rah interspersed and stories of actual conversations he had had with The Donald. Fascinating.
Like many people on TV, he’s smaller than you think. I mentioned to him as he was signing a book for me, that I remembered him from financial news. He seemed offended, like he’d rather forget that. “What? That was like 12 years ago.” However, when he was introduced, the emcee described him as an expert commodity trader. If he was that, I think he’d still be doing it.
He took questions from just one side of the room and certainly played to the ladies in attendance both when he was signing books and answering questions. Perhaps he had the urge to point something at them.
Bolling’s attorney told HuffPost, “Mr. Bolling recalls no such inappropriate communications, does not believe he sent any such communications, and will vigorously pursue his legal remedies for any false and defamatory accusations that are made.”
Perhaps Bolling has a short...memory. The Times reports, that in 2014, Mr. Bolling commented about a female pilot for the United Arab Emirates, Maj. Mariam al-Mansouri, who had led an airstrike against the Islamic State. “Would that be considered boobs on the ground, or no?” Mr. Bolling said.
I’m sure the Real Chamber in Vegas is real happy that got him just in time.
