Eric Bolling remembers his late son on first Thanksgiving without him

Thanksgiving 2017 is no doubt a rather somber affair for political pundit and host Eric Bolling and his wife, Adrienne. What is normally a joyful occasion is, for them, the first Thanksgiving since the untimely passing of their son, Eric Chase Bolling Jr.

“On this emotional first Thanksgiving without Eric Chase… Adrienne and I want you to know that we feel very thankful for the overwhelming, heartwarming support you’ve given us during this time,” Bolling, 54, tweeted on Thursday morning.

The former Fox News host’s only child was found dead Sept. 8 at the age of 19.

Bolling Jr. died shortly after his father was terminated from Fox News. Bolling Sr. was fired after an internal investigation concluded that he had acted inappropriately with several Fox News staffers and guests.

In October, Bolling Sr. took to Twitter to reveal how his young son passed away. A Colorado coroner has ruled the death of Bolling Jr. as an accidental drug overdose, with opioids as a contributing factor.

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

Bolling Sr. thanked his followers for their support and called on the country to fight the national epidemic that is opioid usage.

Hours after Bolling Sr. took to social media to announce that his son died of a drug overdose, multiple media outlets began reporting on the contents of the autopsy.

According to TMZ and PEOPLE, the college student died of an accidental drug overdose, as Bolling Sr. said. The media outlets also reported that the younger Bolling had fentanyl, cocaine, marijuana and Xanax in his system when he died. Fentanyl is a deadly drug often found in lethal batches of heroin.

The autopsy report also stated that Bolling Jr.’s living quarters, where he died, showed that there was a likely history of drug abuse.

Arizona mother gives birth in SUV, drives herself to hospital with toddler in backseat

Mothers are known for being good at multitasking, but an Arizona woman took it to a whole new level.

When Shannon Geise, 31, woke up just after midnight on Nov. 7 to painful contractions and her water breaking, the mother of four told azcentral.com she thought she had time to make it to the hospital for the birth of her son.

The baby, already named Sebastian, had other ideas.

Geise was going to call for a ride, but as the contractions became more severe, she placed her toddler daughter Olivia in the SUV and began the drive to the hospital. Her other children were staying with their father, azcentral.com reported. 

While Olivia watched the "Angry Birds" movie in the backseat, Geise quickly came to the conclusion that she was going to have to deliver the baby in the vehicle. She delivered Sebastian and called 911. The operator told her to wait for an ambulance but Geise said it would be quicker for her to drive there, as she was just minutes away. So holding on to her newborn son with one arm and driving slowly and carefully with the other hand, Geise made her way to the hospital.

Geise told azcentral.com that she and baby Sebastian are doing fine and are at home with family.

Source: Mugabe granted immunity; safety in Zimbabwe ensured

Former President Robert Mugabe was granted immunity from prosecution and was assured that his safety in Zimbabwe would be protected, Reuters reported. The announcement was part of a deal that led to the 93-year-old’s resignation, sources told Reuters.

Mugabe, who had led Zimbabwe since its independence from Great Britain in 1980, resigned Tuesday after the army seized power and the ruling party turned against him. Emmerson Mnangagwa, the former vice president sacked by Mugabe earlier this month, is set to be sworn in as president on Friday.

A government source said Mugabe told negotiators he wanted to die in Zimbabwe and had no plans to live in exile, Reuters reported.

“It was very emotional for him and he was forceful about it,” said the source, who is not authorized to speak on the details of the negotiated settlement.

“For him it was very important that he be guaranteed security to stay in the country … although that will not stop him from traveling abroad when he wants to or has to,” the source told Reuters.

Deputies said a mother was with her two children in a jogging stroller in Valencia around 11 a.m. Wednesday when the man suddenly approached her from behind, KCAL reported.

Investigators said the man grabbed the stroller’s handle and tried to pull it away, but the woman managed to regain control and ran away. She called 911 but the man was gone when officers arrived, KCAL reported.

“My energy goes out to this mother,” said Cindy Potts, also a mother of two young children.

Though she has no connection to the attempted kidnapping, it still leaves Potts rattled.

“The thought of someone taking away my most precious cargo, my life fulfillment, it’s an empty feeling and it’s a frightening feeling,” she told KCAL.

The man is described as a transient, police said.

Watch: North Korean guard makes dramatic defection

South Korea announced on Nov. 13 that an unnamed soldier defecting from the North was rescued and taken to a hospital after he was found shot in the shoulder and elbow in the border village of Panmunjom.

A dramatic video of the 24-year-old, identified only by his last name, Oh, escaping North Korea, is fascinating to watch.

Officials in South Korea said that the escape took place after the North Korean guard abandoned his post and tried to escape. CNN reported that this was the third defection of a North Korean soldier this year and that there had only been four such defections in the past five years.

South Korean officials added that the soldier was in such a bad spot they needed to crawl to save him. Part of the video shows this.

“The defector was urgently transferred to a hospital in a helicopter of the United Nations Command, and there was no exchange of fire with our side,” a South Korean ministry official told Reuters. “Since it was an area exposed to the North, we had to crawl toward there to get him out.”

It’s not clear at this time how high-ranking the soldier was in Kim Jong-un’s army, but we do know he was in the military for eight years and was a vehicle driver.

The video shows multiple North Korean soldiers firing at Oh. He was shot at least five times.

The lead surgeon in South Korea said Oh is “not going to die” from these wounds, ABC News reported.

ABC News said it appeared North Korea violated the 1953 Armistice Agreement signed by the U.N., North Korea and China by firing guns across the military demarcation line and by physically crossing the line.

Floridians twerk for Trump during traffic jam he caused

It’s never the wrong time to get your twerk on, according to a few Floridians.

President Donald Trump and his family traveled to his Mar-a-Lago property in Palm Beach for the Thanksgiving holiday. As with any official trip made by the First Family, the Trumps traveled from Palm Beach International Airport to the property via a motorcade.

While motorcades are usually uneventful, and attention is usually focused on the person being escorted, one person caught the moment some locals decided to make the best of the traffic jam caused by the president.

A video lasting just over half a minute showed two people exit a car and start to twerk on the highway.

While twerking is certainly nothing new, HuffPost noted car twerking took South Florida by storm earlier in the year as young people flocked to Miami for Spring Break.

A young bikini-clad woman was recorded hanging out of a vehicle, leg draped along the roof and twerking up a storm while her friend sped down MacArthur Causeway.
