Eric Bolling Career
Bolling was a commodities trade on the New York Mercantile Exchange. He specialized in trading natural gas, crude oil, gold, and other commodities.
After serving five years on the board of directors at the NYMEX (now CME Group), Bolling became a strategic adviser to the exchange’s board of directors. He was included in Trader Monthly’s Top 100 in 2005 and 2006. Bolling was the recipient of the Maybach Man of the Year Award at the Trader Monthly Awards, January 17, 2007.
Bolling was involved in developing CNBC’s Fast Money. Bolling left CNBC in August 2007 and moved to the new Fox Business Network as one of the network’s financial analysts. He hosted the business show Happy Hour, which ran opposite Fast Money in the 5 p.m. time slot.
In June 2011 on the Fox Business Network, Bolling criticized President Barack Obama’s decision to meet with Gabon’s President Ali Bongo Ondimba in the White House. Bolling remarked, “Guess who’s coming to dinner? A dictator.” He then went on to also criticize Obama for allowing rapper Common to appear in the White House a few weeks before, exclaiming “it’s not the first time he’s had a hoodlum in the hizzouse.” Progressive group Media Matters criticized Bolling, saying “Calling the president of Gabon and Common ‘hoods in the hizzy’ is not colorful commentary, it is overt racism.” Bolling at first defended himself on Twitter claiming that people were baselessly accusing him because he worked for Fox News. Bolling apologized for his comments, saying, “On Friday, we did a story about the President meeting with the president of Gabon. We got a little fast and loose with the language, and we know it’s been interpreted as being disrespectful, and for that, I’m sorry.”

Bolling and then co-host political pundit Bob Beckel were known to take strong opposing positions on issues, positions that led to heated exchanges.

Former Fox News anchor Eric Bolling granted his first major interview Wednesday after being fired from the network last year to MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski.
From the beginning of the segment, Joe and Mika told viewers that there would be no discussion of the sexual harassment scandal that forced Bolling out from Fox News back in September 2017.
“Eric, you lost the job that you loved at Fox News amid controversy and a lot of people might want us to ask you a lot of questions around the circumstances around that departure,” said Brzezinski. “But for this segment, we’re going to leave those questions for another time.”

Bolling’s career at Fox News unraveled in August 2017 after Yashar Ali published a story in HuffPost revealing that the anchor sent sexually suggestive text messages to several female Fox News and Fox Business employees, and made lewd remarks to female employees.
Fox swiftly suspended him and after an investigation, he was ultimately fired. The show he co-hosted, “The Specialists” was also canceled a short time later. Bolling is one of several former network stars who left Fox News in the wake of sexual misconduct accusations.
Instead of focusing on his ouster, the “Morning Joe” segment focused on Bolling’s work tackling America’s opioid crisis.

Former Fox News Host Eric Bolling Meets With Trump Over Opioid Epidemic
The host says that Trump has been a regular caller and well-wisher since his son died Sept. 8, the same day that his separation from Fox News was announced.
On Tuesday afternoon, former Fox News host Eric Bolling met in the White House with President Trump to discuss the opioid epidemic, an issue that has taken on a personal resonance for him since the death of his only son from an accidental overdose in early September.
Bolling tells The Hollywood Reporter that he had a lengthy conversation with the president about the issue, which he said he’s discussed on phone calls and “several” previous visits with Trump in the White House. He also met with counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway, who has been tapped to lead the White House’s response to the epidemic.
“Eric has committed to help the president and his administration as we endeavor to bend the curve and destroy this ‘crisis next door,'” Conway said in part in a statement to THR. She said that Bolling’s “ability to connect and communicate with people on a range of issues is well-known.”
Bolling says he was “very happy to hear” that Trump is focused on the issue, which he says the White House is “stepping up” efforts to combat, including a new initiative involving the U.S. surgeon general that’s slated to be announced in the coming days. He says he’s convinced that Trump is well-informed on the supply side of the opioid issue. (The administration has gotten some flak for not taking more tangible steps to address the problem.)
“I have offered him 100 percent of my availability, whatever he needs me to do,” Bolling said last week. After his Tuesday meeting, Bolling said, “They’re going to be using me to help develop some of these awareness initiatives.”
Bolling says that Trump has called him “more times than you can count on one hand” and has shown him “compassion and empathy” since the death of his son, 19-year-old Eric Chase, from an overdose stemming from his ingestion of a pill laced with fentanyl. “He’s been amazing,” he says of Trump.
Bolling says the president called him on Thanksgiving, right as he and his wife were about to sit down to dinner with an empty chair that would have been for their son. “The timing was poetic,” he says.
