Fox Business Guest Calls Robert Mueller ‘Anthrax Bob’


Conservative pundit and Independent Women’s Voice president Heather Higgins borrowed a Trumpian flourish on Friday, saying special counsel Robert Mueller’s new nickname should be “Anthrax Bob,” leading Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo to laugh along.

“Can we call him Anthrax Bob?” Higgins asked as she defended President Donald Trump against the Michael Cohen guilty plea. “Because he is so revered, this is the man who for 5 years pursued somebody who clearly was not the cause of anthrax and wasted all of this taxpayer money on an investigation, Bob Mueller.”

“You’re calling Robert Mueller Anthrax Bob?” Bartiromo replied, laughing, to-which Higgins repeated the nickname: “Anthrax Bob.”

Earlier in the segment, Higgins told Bartiromo, “Last I checked investing in Russia is legal” after the host asked her about how Cohen’s plea could be tied to Trump.

“This is something that ought to concern everyone, is what happens when you have the unbridled power of the special prosecutor trying to wring at the threat of peril of extraordinarily disproportionate sentences, some sort of information that advances their political agenda,” she added.
