Fox Hosts Laugh At Eric Bolling As He Whines About Jon Stewart Being Mean To Him

Poor Eric Bolling couldn't get any sympathy from his fellow hosts of The Five when he complained about mean old Jon Stewart picking on him.

Poor old butthurt Eric Bolling couldn't even get any sympathy from his fellow The Five co-hosts this Wednesday when he was the only one on there that had nasty things to say about Jon Stewart's announcement that he's retiring from The Daily Show.

Fellow Fox Hosts Laugh At Eric Bolling As He Whines About Jon Stewart (VIDEO):

Most of Fox News' coverage of Jon Stewart stepping down from "The Daily Show" has taken a tone of detached appreciation, even if the comedian consistently singled out the channel as a "propaganda delivery system."

But on the panel show "The Five" on Wednesday, co-host Eric Bolling refused to join his colleagues in praising the Comedy Central star.

"Can I just point out what he does?" Bolling began. "Yes, he's funny, he's witty, he has the backing of the adoring left and all that."

"But one of the things that he does, and I'm not sure people really understand, most of the stuff that he does on that show, he attacks people who are on-air live when they say something," he said.

"He'll take the sound bite, he'll go in the back and they will say let's research this, see what we can find," he continued. "They'll literally have a team of people tearing apart live sound, people for making comments."

"You know that's happened to you, right?" co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle said with a laugh.

"But it's also shooting fish in a barrel," Bolling said. "Jon, try and do your show live one time, my man. Then let's see what kind of comedic genius you are!"

"You're gonna make it [on 'The Daily Show'] again," Guilfoyle teased.

Bolling was not amused. "I'm not trying to make it!"

Co-host Greg Gutfeld stuck up for Stewart against his co-host.

"If he's shooting fish in a barrel, we don't always have to provide the fish," he said, laughing. "And we provide a lot of fish."

Gutfeld's earlier comments in the segment were almost as ridiculous as Bolling's, where he called Stewart leaving the show a "big loss for the simpering left wing media" and pretended that there's a chance in hell we're going to see some rising stars on the right to help fill the void once he leaves, but he's right about Bolling giving him material that was the equivalent of shooting fish in a barrel.

And Bolling's excuse about doing "live shows" is pathetic at best. Live or not, the topics are planned out well ahead of time, like the segment Stewart went after where Bolling was attacking SNAP recipients, a favorite topic for all of them on the network. Bolling's attacks over President Obama's "latte salute" that Stewart ripped him apart for were not some off the cuff remark. It was the talking point of the day or maybe the week on Fox.

Once again Bolling proves that the only way he's capable of going after Stewart is by making stuff up. Pathetic. This time it was so pathetic even his fellow Faux "news" gasbags wouldn't come to his rescue.
