On Cashin' In today, host Eric Bolling turned to Dr. Caroline Heldman for comments on the subject of wasteful spending at federal agencies. But he immediately smeared his guest - who also happened to be the only liberal on the panel - by referring to her as "Dr. McHottie."
All right, let’s go to Dr. McHottie, uh, Dr. Heldman, really, really, sequester started at the White House, why can’t the White House start cutting its own and doing it the right way?
Bolling does this because he knows being treated that way is her “fuck you” button. Heldman handles pervs and sexually harassive comments like a boss that I’ve seen, but until recently, Bolling had a sixth sense for how to leave her visibly holding back because she knew the next thing out of her mouth would be an epic verbal smack.
I say until recently because her last few appearances, Heldman’s just responded with a smile that (to me) says: Why did I ever let anything this trolling halfwit says bother me?!
Then she whips him up and down the block on actual facts.
I wonder if this is part of the “news” or “opinion” segment of Fox?
@ Karen J: Bolling also got rather agitated and cut off Dr. Heldman’s response earlier, when he went to whitehouse.gov and saw the listed salaries of three WH employees (Special Assistants To The President and Director Of Public Engagement): $128 – $160K.
He demanded to know why the White House doesn’t start setting the example with budget cutting right there.
I suppose Bolling was equally upset about waste when Ronnie Raygun’s WH staff by 1988 numbered 590 persons — the largest of any US President . . .
