Fox’s Eric Bolling schools ‘dummy’ Jon Stewart on food stamp abuse

Fox News host Eric Bolling had to explain a few facts of life this weekend to Comedy Central’s Jon Stewart about food stamp abuse – and challenged Stewart to an appearance on Fox to do something about it.

On Saturday’s “Cashin’ In” program on Fox, Bolling responded to a Stewart bit from earlier in the week complaining about Republicans mistrust of federal entitlement programs.

Stewart illustrated it with an acronym “FOOD,” which he said stood for “Food stamps can only be used for food-O-O-Dummy.”

On Saturday, Bolling tried to clue the millionaire comedian in on some food-stamp realities:

Then came the challenge:

“By the way, Jon, you’re welcome to come on the show any time to debate it.
