Was there another f-word on The Five today? If so, it wouldn’t be terribly surprising. When you’ve got a live show where the debates sometimes get contentious, this stuff happens. No, we’re just amused it wasn’t Bob Beckel this time. In fact, just a couple minutes after Beckel made a joke about not being able to say a word he wanted, it was Eric Bolling who let one slip.
The alleged curse happened during a discussion of Warren Buffett’s New York Times op-ed. As Beckel was pointing out that richest Americans have paid the lowest taxes in years, Bolling made an exclamation that certainly sounded to us like “It’s the same f*cking point, Bob!”
Judging by the hilarious reactions from Kimberly Guilfoyle and Greg Gutfeld, we clearly weren’t the only ones to hear it.
Update: There is currently a debate going on the Mediaite office over whether he said “f*cking” or “talking.” Most of us, myself included, are pretty positive he said “f*cking” and then quickly said “talking” the second time. Why else would Guilfoyle and Gutfeld react the way they did? That being said, a couple folks here strongly feel he said “talking.”
Update 2: Bolling tells Mediaite that he said “talking point,” and not “f*cking point.”
What do you think? Have at it in the comments! It’s certainly more fun than debating the actual economy.

Update 3: Eric Bolling responds via Twitter
