Eric Bolling’s son died in an accident. The media pounced and peddled false stories that were so very hurtful to Eric and his wife.
They tried to link the accidental overdose death of his son to Eric’s recent troubles at Fox News. In effect, they were trying to blame Eric for his son’s death.
It was disgusting and they should be ashamed.
They peddled BS lies to sell newspapers and they do the same with President Trump.
So today, before he heads to the White House to discuss how he can help with their anti-opioid plan, he stopped for an appearance on Morning Joe to set the record straight.
Eric revealed for the first time how his son Chase died and the media wasn’t even close.
He said Chase bought a Xanax pill that was tragically, and unknown to him, laced with fentanyl. Poor kid. Millions of college kids and regular adults do the same thing and he gets a bad pill. That’s a real tragedy.
Then he spoke of how many people, including Trump, helped him deal with the loss.
From the Washington Times:
“We’re about to sit down to the Thanksgiving table, and there’s an empty chair right there, Eric’s chair,” Mr. Bolling recalled on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” show. “I’m seeing it happening — the turkey’s on the table, and we’re walking over there, and it’s going to be really bad. And the phone rings, and it’s Trump who says, ‘You know, Eric, I understand this is the first holiday without him. I wanted you to know we’re thinking about you.’ “
“He cares about this issue,” Mr. Bolling said of the president. “The guy has empathy and compassion for this.”
Eric is set to help raise awareness of the opioid epidemic and he is a brave man to do so after the tragedy that hit his family.
