Bob Beckel, Eric Bolling and the Lunch That Changed Everything

At the beginning of yesterday’s “The Five” — intended to be a segment on jobs — Bob Beckel, prompted by the other hosts, recounted the story of how he choked at a kickoff lunch for the show yesterday afternoon.

“You just can’t make these things up,” the Fox News Channel host said. “I have a couple people to thank.” Beckel revealed that it was co-host Eric Bolling who jumped to the rescue, aided by “the boss of bosses” at FNC, Roger Ailes, who “stood up and gave me the Heimlich, but he couldn’t get his arms all the way around me.” Watch the video, via Johnny Dollar’s Place, below:
