Here’s some powerful video from BlazeTV of Eric Bolling recounting his brush with a heckler who decided to make a cruel remark about Bolling’s late son within earshot at the Trump Hotel in D.C. In short, the people with Bolling are trying to talk him out of a physical confrontation, and frankly, we would have preferred to have seen that.
But if you needed proof of how low some people can go, here it is:
.@EricBolling was sitting with some friends at Trump Hotel in D.C. when a man walked by his table & said, loud enough for them to hear, Eric's son "killed himself because he was embarrassed by his dad.”
Eric followed the hateful man outside & started filming what came next… pic.twitter.com/51FhqG6Nmh

Maybe telling people it's okay to yell at political opponents and chase them out of restaurants was a bad idea. https://t.co/41Ssmmhery

I am so incredibly sorry that there are such hateful people in the world. No parent who suffers the indescribable loss of a child should be put through such evil.

Some people feel they have to tear down others to build themselves up. Very sorry you had to listen to those who have so much hate in their heart Eric. God Bless you and your wife. ???

Eric. I am so sorry 4 UR loss. I can't imagine what it felt like 2 have that happen 2U last night. I hope that your knowledge that there is a life in the next can give you some hope to see your son again when God calls you home in God's time. I cried watching the tape of this

Disgusting. There is no excuse for this evil person to have done that to you. Karma will take care of him & I hope that someone that he knows has the sense to tell him he was disgusting. I am sorry that this happened to you.

Lots of evil in America…but you sir must continue to fight the good fight for your family and all good Americans! Thank you that you continue to do just that ??

Hang in there Eric. You are loved.

Good for you @ericbolling , there’s no excuse, no understanding for the cruelty in our society today.

Better him than me. There would have been no words and I'd be in the clink for manslaughter.
— Erik (@winefishdawg) March 21, 2019
Eric, keep up the hard work and keep honoring your son. He’s watching, no doubt, beaming with pride.
— David Bozell (@DavidBozell) March 21, 2019
Horrible. It is so sad that there are people like that will no compassion for life and others. And to actively use your son's tragic death to hurt you. Please keep up the fight against opiods, you are helping to make a difference. I cannot fathom what you and your family feel.

God bless you, Eric. Your son's legacy will be the countless lives saved. You're a good man. These wretched souls will never feel the true joy–and yes, pain–that comes with living a full life.
We're with you, and we thank you. ~ Carole

This is just heartbreaking… my heart goes out to him and his family, and I pray for people that feel this is acceptable.

So sorry Eric, the breakdown of civility and compassion for fellow Americans is saddening, all over ideology, God bless.

I am so sorry Mr. Bolling and family went through this.
My daughter’s friend died a few months ago from the exact same thing: Xanax laced w/fentanyl. So very tragic.

I hope some people can take a few minutes and listen to the message from this man. Obviously, never bow to the mob and I commend him for it. But this is the state we are in. People have lost their minds and values simply over politics. Despicable. I’ll always be on this side.
— Kenny Rieck (@Kenzel12) March 21, 2019
I stand with you @ericbolling and agree wholeheartedly with you. Things would have been much different had it been me and not for the better. Expose these monsters. Shine light as you've said in the past. Light is the best disinfectant. May God bless you.
— Richard (@SMHatliberals) March 21, 2019
You are a much better man than me. Very thankful for your friends who protected you from making the huge mistake I would have made.
— C Tan Deplorable (@ChrisTa99298057) March 21, 2019
My heart breaks for you and your wife. I am glad you called them out, and all of the hatred that many of us experience because of our politics. This is not my America. It is not how I was raised, and I really wish I could go somewhere else. To live in peace. Away from hate.
— Jacquelyn ?? ? ? ? (@JackiePeters55) March 21, 2019
My heart is breaking for you man, felt such rage seeing this crap. What has happened to our humanity, our decency and our compassion for one another. I have a son and I'd feel such unbridled rage if this had happened to me. Peace be with you.
— moxwell (@moxwell) March 21, 2019
What that man did is something no dignified person would ever do. Please remember you have the love and support of millions of people. As a parent, my heart broke for you when I heard you had lost your child. May God bless you, your wife and your beloved son.
— Ali Michelle (@AMichelle71) March 21, 2019
I lost my brother to drugs, right after he left my home, I felt a part of myself die that day. I wouldn't want to know what it feels like if was my child. God bless you ?
— Lil' Miss Sunshine (@Luckylaurie2) March 21, 2019
My goodness, this brings tears to my eyes. I am so sad with you. But, I admire your courage, and love, and insight, to bring this truth to help others. God will bless you greatly. And he will deal with the evil. Stay strong.
