In Eric Bolling’s mind, Warren Buffett may be a socialist now.
That skepticism was shared by the Fox Business News host after the renowned billionaire again stated in a New York Times op-ed on Monday that the rich needed to pay more in taxes. In a heated debate with Columbia professor Marc Lamont Hill, Boiling was steadfast in slamming Buffet’s opinion and President Obama’s “socialist handbook.”
“What is this, is he completely a socialist and he’s playing into Mr. Obama’s hands of “Tax anyone who makes money’ and give it to people who don’t work,” Bolling asked.
Hill replied: “So basically anyone who disagrees with you is a socialist? Now Warren Buffett, one of the greatest profit makers in human history, is a socialist? I mean, come on. He’s simply saying people need to pay their fair share.”
That didn’t stop Bolling continue to display the usual conservative outrage on the idea of tax increases on the rich. After his guest compared Obama’s economic options to a revolver, Bolling added to the analogy.
“All of these bullets guys are in ‘the socialist handbook.'”

Pelosi smacks down Fox News reporter’s question — and hilariously explains to Trump what ‘exculpatory’ means
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on Thursday smacked down Fox News reporter Chad Pergram after he insinuated that House Democrats seemed "excited" about the prospect of impeaching President Donald Trump.
During a press conference, Pergram asked Pelosi, "Why would the public not think that the House is dead set on a course to impeach the president when all of this milieu was going on?"
"All this milieu is a seeking of the truth," she replied. "It's called an inquiry."
Pelosi at this point turned to the camera and seemed to address Trump directly.
"And if the president has something that is exculpatory -- Mr. President, that means if you have anything that shows your innocence -- then he should make that known," she said. "And that's part of the inquiry. So far we haven't seen that."

After surprise ruling, firearm-makers may finally decide it’s in their interest to help reduce gun violence
Mass shootings have become a routine occurrence in America.
Gun-makers have long refused to take responsibility for their role in this epidemic. That may be about to change.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Nov. 12 refused to block a lawsuit filed by the families of the Sandy Hook Elementary mass shooting victims, clearing the way for the litigation to proceed. Remington Arms, which manufactured and sold the semiautomatic rifle used in the attack, had hoped the broad immunity the industry has enjoyed for years would shield it from any liability.
