In yet another direct tie between Fox News and Donald Trump, host Eric Bolling is reportedly under consideration for a position in the Trump administration’s Commerce Department.
Politico broke the news Saturday, noting that it’s unclear what position Bolling may be up for (though it’s probably not secretary).
“At this time I can’t confirm anything,” Bolling told POLITICO. “I’m sure you understand.”
Bolling is a long-time Trump sycophant and considering Bolling’s record of bigotry, it’s not a big surprise. But while Trump pretends to care about the little guy, Bolling has open contempt for the poor. We’ve written about this many times.
Media Matters has more on Bolling’s bigotry and conspiracy theories.
But nothing can compare to Jon Stewart’s brilliant takedown of Bolling and the Fox News war on the poor. Enjoy it below, from the March 13, 2014 The Daily Show.
