Fox's Eric Bolling apparently still isn't over having his ass handed to him by Jon Stewart last year for his shaming of food stamp recipients. He did a little historical revisionism during this segment on Saturday's Cashin' In and once again pretended that he "had to school" Jon Stewart, rather than Stewart making a mockery of him, which is what actually happened.

Now that Stewart has announced his retirement and Comedy Central has chosen a new host, Trevor Noah, a South African who has already stirred up some controversy over some of his tweets, Bolling thinks Noah needs some advice from him on how to be funny.

From Fox's blog: Eric Bolling Has Advice, Warning for New 'Daily Show' Host:

"It's class dismissed for [Jon] Stewart. Comedy Central announcing comedian Trevor Noah is taking over 'The Daily Show' throne," Bolling said. "I'll be interested to see if Noah continues his loony liberal legacy."

Bolling revealed that he's done his homework on Noah, pointing out that the young comedian has a pretty good perspective on things like American culture, gender issues and race.

"But, for what it's worth, here's some free advice to Trevor. Stick to your 'shtick' and don't try to appease the liberal laugh factory on the left," Bolling suggested.

"Go ahead, play that race comedy card you use and poke fun at America. I get it. That's your brand of humor. Not mine, just sayin'."

Bolling recommended, however, that Noah steer clear of Washington hypocrisy, elected officials' cronyism and liberal attacks on the fabric of America.

"That's my job," Bolling stated.

"And that's where Stewart and I got into the slugfests. Lanes, he had his, I have mine, and he never really caught on to that," Bolling explained.

"Anyway, Trevor, good luck with the new gig. I hope you heed my advice. But I’m pretty sure you won’t. Just a matter of time before the sweet, soft embrace of liberal acceptance sucks you into her warm place. Vox, Buzzfeed, Huffington Post and so on. Here's your warning shot: I didn't back away from Stewart. And I won't back away from you either."
