Fox News’ Eric Bolling Calls Jon Stewart “Dummy” For Mocking Fox’s Coverage of Food Stamps

eric-bollingA while back me and a buddy of mine went back and forth about which “left” and “right” media figures we would love to see go head to head in a public debate.  I said I would love to see Stephen Colbert square off against Bill O’Reilly, Ann Coulter go head to head with Rachel Maddow, Jon Stewart take on Sean Hannity and Bill Maher face off against Rush Limbaugh.

Though I’m sure a one hour, commercial free debate between these individuals would never happen – it’s still fun to think about the possibilities.

Well, following his recent comments, it seems Fox News’ Eric Bolling would like to have a face to face debate with “dummy” Jon Stewart.

And I would absolutely love to see that happen.

It’s no secret that Jon Stewart thinks Fox News’ coverage of just about damn near everything is horrible (because it usually is horrible).  But recently he focused his attention on the vile nature at which Fox News seems to attack those on welfare.  I’m sure many of you have heard the stories Fox News like to perpetuate of people abusing the welfare system, pulling out cash to purchase items that they probably shouldn’t be buying.

And I don’t think many liberals will dispute the fact that abuse does happen.  But the way Fox News acts as if the vast majority of those on these programs are out getting “lap dances and booze” with SNAP benefits is absurd.

Well, following Stewart’s mocking of Fox New’s coverage Bolling had a few choice words for Stewart, saying, “Well, let me school you, Mr. Stewart.”  He then went on to continue the insinuation that tens of millions of people on welfare are out buying “booze, weed, and lap dances.”

Then he invited Stewart to debate him:

“By the way, Jon, you’re welcome to come on the show any time to debate it. Dummy.”

Can we please make this happen?  I would absolutely love to see these two square off against one another.  Bolling is an arrogant, pompous ass and I really hope that in some way Stewart gives his comments a proper response.
