Fox News' Eric Bolling, co-host of The Five must have been revved up on something during Thursday's show in Philly at the DNC convention because he made one of the most ridiculous and fraudulent claims any right wing talk show host has ever made.

It ranks right up there with conservatives who boast to Americans, with a straight face, that George Bush kept us safe.

During a discussion about how Trump actually would combat terrorism, Bolling made the bogus statement that George Bush should get the credit for taking out Osama Bin laden to Juan Williams, who almost fell off his chair.

JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): I don't think most people, I don't think most Americans, even Trump supporters think Donald Trump really knows a lot about how to combat terrorism.

ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): I'll tell you about who doesn't know a whole lot about terrorism, is President Obama. And he's proven that over the last eight years. Remember when he said "I want to lead from behind," he said --

WILLIAMS: He never said "I want to lead from behind."

BOLLING: -- "Let's pull out of Afghanistan and Iraq."

KIMBERLY GUILFOLYE (CO-HOST): The "jay vee team."

BOLLING: -- "Jay vee team." He's failed on every level as far as counter-terror all the way through.WILLIAMS: Oh, I see.

BOLLING: And if you point to Bin Laden, that wasn't Obama's administration that got Bin Laden.

WILLIAMS: It wasn't?

BOLLING: That was the Bush administration that set up the kill shot, and Obama took the kill shot.

WILLIAMS: Up to then, I was listening to you. But goodness gracious, you went overboard.

In 2002, George Bush once said, "I truly am not that concerned about him." And Bin Laden was not killed until over two years after Bush left office, but you know. What do facts matter to conservative pundits?

Where's Jon Stewart when you need him? Come back, please!

Here's a couple of flashbacks of Stewart taking down the idiotic Bolling.
