In a seemingly appropriate New Year’s send off aired Monday, Fox News host Eric Bolling accidentally shot himself in the torso with the cap of a confetti gun just after pledging that his program would be “number one in 2013.”
“Here’s to making my prediction a reality,” Bolling said. “‘The Five,’ number one in 2013. You know what? Let’s do it, everybody. And of course, to our troops, whose commitment to freedom keeps us safe, sound and secure. Thank you all, good night everybody, and be careful out there tonight.”
The look of pain that followed was memorable, to say the least.
