Fox News host Eric Bolling was no fan of Anthony Weiner’s ill-fated 2013 run to be mayor of New York. Bolling was severely critical of Weiner’s sexting past, most notably Weiner’s texting dalliance with Sidney Leathers.
On August 4, the Huffington Post reported that Bolling was being accused of sending unsolicited dick pics to female Fox News employees. A Fox News spokesperson told Heavy.com, “We were just informed of this late Friday afternoon via a Huff Post inquiry and plan to investigate the matter.”
In the above clip, you’ll see Bolling urging Weiner to drop out of the mayoral race. Later, in 2014 when Weiner complimented CNN, Bolling went on a Twitter rant against Weiner:
The feud didn’t end there, in 2017 when Weiner pleaded guilty to exchanging sexual messages with a minor, Bolling said on Fox News:
He is a sick human being. To continue to do this time and time again, continue to get caught, saying he’s not going to do it again, gets caught again.
Bolling added that he felt Weiner’s behavior was “pathological.” His co-host, Kat Timpf, added, “He said, ‘I have a sickness, but I don’t have an excuse,’ which is like saying, ‘It’s not my fault, but I accept responsibility. He still thinks the world owes him something. He’s never going to change.”
The Huff Po report reads, “One of the recipients said that when she replied to Bolling via text, telling him never to send her such photos again, he did not respond. Four people, outside of the recipients, confirmed to HuffPost they’d seen the photo, and eight others said the recipients had spoken to them about it.”
