Fox’s Eric Bolling Apologizes for ‘Boobs on the Ground’ Remark

Fox host Eric Bolling apologized Thursday for a quip he made yesterday about the first female pilot for the United Arab Emirates representing “boobs on the ground.”

For those not in the cable news know, when the roundtable talk show discussed that pilot’s involvement in UAE strikes against ISIS forces in Syria this week, Bolling asked: “Would that be considered boobs on the ground?

His colleague Greta Van Susteren was not pleased, snarking during her own 7 p.m. show that perhaps “the gents on The Five should get a do over on that one.”

“I made a joke and when I got home, I got the look,” Bolling said, referring to what happened after his comments aired on Wednesday. “I said sorry to my wife and I apologize to you all and want to make that very clear.”
