Former Fox News host Eric Bolling shared a powerful story about President Trump calling him after his late son passed away from an opioid overdose at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) Thursday.


“I spoke to President Trump, in the deep, dark times that my wife and I were having,” Bolling explained. “We were going to sit down for the Thanksgiving dinner. There was an empty chair.”

“We are walking over to the table and the phone rang. It was President Trump who said, ‘Eric, no one should have to lose a child and we are thinking of you.’ Very, very important that he did that”

“He has been great,” Bolling added. “He showed empathy and compassion, so I used it as an opportunity to say, ‘Mr. President, can I come talk to you about this?’ And I have. I’ve gone to the White House a couple of times.”

Bolling lost his 19-year-old son Chase to an accidental opioid drug overdose last year. (RELATED: Eric Bolling’s Son’s Cause Of Death Revealed)
