“The Late Show” host Stephen Colbert ripped Fox News host Eric Bolling, who is currently suspended after being accused of sending lewd text messages to colleagues, on Monday night.
Colbert described Bolling as “guy whose cologne you can smell through the TV” and mocked the anchor for criticizing infamous genitalia texter Anthony Weiner in the past.
“You know what they say about people who live in glass houses? It’s really easy to show your junk to the whole neighborhood,” Colbert said
A Huffington Post report Friday said that according to several unnamed sources, Bolling sent at least three female colleagues an unsolicited photo of male genitalia. The outlet cited “a dozen sources” who said said that the messages were sent several years ago and the women found them “deeply upsetting and offensive.”
“Oh my god, whatever happened to old fashion courtship?” Colbert asked.
The Fox News host was suspended from the network “pending the results of an investigation, which is currently underway,” a Fox News spokesperson told TheWrap on Saturday.
“The anonymous, uncorroborated claims are untrue and terribly unfair,” Bolling’s lawyer, Michael Bowe, told CNNMoney in a statement on Saturday. “We intend to fully cooperate with the investigation so that it can be concluded and Eric can return to work as quickly as possible.”
Bolling currently hosts “The Fox News Specialists” and the Saturday program “Cashin’ In,” both on Fox News. He’s been a prominent Trump supporter, routinely praising the president on his shows.
Colbert even compared him to a shaved squirrel. Check out the video above.
