After this stupid segment with Eric Bolling, what's up next? Pete Hegseth explaining why war is good for Iran AND the United States?

Newshounds:

Yesterday, The Five discussed a video of celebrities explaining and promoting the nuclear deal. The five cohosts, including Fox liberal Julie Roginsky, sneered and jeered.

But cohost Eric Bolling kicked the opposition up a notch. “Did you notice… Who was it that said it would be the worst idea to go to war with Iran everrrrr? Everrrrr? Why would that be a bad idea by the way? If they want to kill America, wouldn’t it be a good idea to make sure they don’t succeed in their goal of death to America?”

Nobody challenged him.

You may recall that chickenhawk Bolling loved the Iraq war, too.

Bolling continued, “Did you notice that Global Zero (the video’s producer) also has a plan to bring the global number of warheads, of nuclear warheads, down to zero? Now, why would they want to do that? ….Isn’t the fact that we are the strongest and have the most capability and the most nuclear power and haven’t used it except for the one time, have never used it in 50, 60 years, wouldn’t it be the case for having the power to make sure the globe is safe rather than making sure no one has one and let Iran develop their own without telling anyone else, and then succeed in their goal of death to America?”

Actually, it’s 70 years since Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But nobody corrected Bolling about that, either.

War is always just fine with Fox yakkers, but health care and retirement security? Not so much. Just tells you where their priorities are.

Can you help us out?
