On Tuesday night’s episode of “The Five,” Fox News personality Bob Beckel, the show’s sole token Democrat, shouted at co-host Eric Bolling for wagging a finger in his face and slapping his arm, warning: “You know, if you do that again you’re fucking toast.”
For Beckel, that marks the second time he’s dropped an f-bomb on Fox News this year. He told a female guest on an April 2012 broadcast of “Hannity” that she didn’t “know what the fuck” she was talking about, then refused to apologize on the mistaken assumption that they were on a commercial break. And just last week he called RNC Chairman Rince Preibus “free pussy” in an apparent slip of the tongue while criticizing presumptive Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
Bolling’s panel on Tuesday was discussing whether the selection of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) as Romney’s running mate will harm the Republican Party’s chances to retake the White House.
“Why do you take a guy who’s taken the most controversial subject , put him on the ticket with you and you disappear and he becomes the focal point of the campaign?” Beckel asked.
