Fox News host Eric Bolling is at again. After reporting on Rep. Maxine Waters’ incendiary claim that GOP House leaders are “demons”, Bolling quipped that Waters should “step away from the crack pipe.” After being chided by his Fox & Friends co-hosts, Bolling said he was joking:

Fox News host Eric Bolling shocked his co-hosts on “Fox and Friends” when he told Rep. Maxine Waters to “step away from the crack pipe” on Thursday. Bolling quickly said that he was “kidding.”

Waters stirred up anger on the right when video surfaced on Wednesday showing her calling House Republican leaders John Boehner and Eric Cantor “demons.”

On Thursday, Bolling and co-host Steve Doocy took turns bashing Waters for the remarks. But Bolling took things to another level.

“Congresswoman, you saw what happened to Whitney Houston,” he said. “Step away from the crack pipe, step away from the Xanax, step away from the Lorazepam because it’s going to get you in trouble.”

This is not the first time Bolling has made racially provocative and insensitive remarks on live television. During the brouhaha over rapper Common’s invitation to the White House, Bolling said that there would be a “hoodlum in the hizzhouse.”

Bolling eventually apologized for those remarks, saying he “got a little fast and loose with the language.”
