Eric Bolling reveals his son’s terrible cause of death – it’s even worse than we thought

Former Fox News host Eric Bolling said his 19-year-old son Eric Chase Bolling died of an accidental drug overdose that involved opioids.

“Just received some tragic news from Coroner in Colorado,” Bolling revealed on Twitter. “Eric Chase’s passing has been ruled an accidental overdose that included opioids.”

Bolling then thanked supporters for their prayers and urged an end to the alarming opioid epidemic that has swept the United States. “We must fight against this national epidemic, too many innocent victims,” he tweeted.

A toxicology report obtained by the Daily Mail showed Eric Jr. also consumed high levels of cocaine, the prescription sedative Xanax, and the opioid fentanyl before his death. Eric Chase reportedly had a history of drug abuse.

Eric Jr., who was a student at the University of Colorado at Boulder, was found dead in his bed at his apartment on September 8. His shocking death came just hours after Bolling was ousted by Fox News amid sexual harassment allegations.

Multiple press reports initially claimed the teen had committed suicide, but his dad pushed back on those rumors. Eric Chase was said to have been extremely upset over his dad’s firing.

Eric Bolling’s announcement about his son’s cause of death came shortly after President Trump declared the opioid epidemic a national public health emergency.

Death by drug overdose has doubled since 2003, and has spiked 211% since 1999, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Experts have blamed the increased availability and reduced cost of addictive drugs for the epidemic.

Whereas drug addiction was once a problem of the inner city, the epidemic has now also spread to the suburbs. President Trump has blamed the tsunami of illegal drugs pouring across the U.S. border for this health crisis, citing this as a key reason for why we need a border wall.

“We can be the generation that ends the opioid epidemic,” Trump said at a White House ceremony. The president then briefly discussed the tragic death of his brother Fred Trump from alcoholism and drug abuse.

President Trump said he never started drinking, smoking, or doing drugs because his brother repeatedly warned him not to. “I had a brother, Fred, great guy,” Trump said. “Best looking guy, best personality. Much better than mine. But he had a problem with alcohol. And he would tell me, ‘Don’t drink. Don’t drink.'”

Trump continued: “I listened to him. He would constantly tell me, ‘Don’t drink.’ He would also add, ‘Don’t smoke.’ He would say it over and over and over again. And to this day, I’ve never had a drink.”

That anti-alcohol, anti-drug message is one the president passed on to his children. First daughter Ivanka Trump has repeatedly recounted how her dad warned her and her brothers as children to never do drugs or drunk.

“My dad is very strict,” Ivanka has said. “My dad feels very adamantly about no drugs, no drinking, no smoking, because his brother died of alcoholism.”
