VIDEO: Fox Host Calls Obama's Guests 'Hoodlums in the Hizzouse'

Watch the segment and Eric Bollings' apology here.


Fox Business host Eric Bolling has (barely) apologized on air after referring to guests of Barack Obama at the White House as "hoodlums in the hizzouse" and "hoods in the hizzy." He made the comments on Friday as a means of chastising the president's engagement with Ali Bongo Odimba, the president of Gabon in Africa. Bolling then cut to a picture of rapper Common, who Obama recently invited to appear at the White House.
