At a Liberty University town hall on America’s opioid crisis on Wednesday, First Lady Melania Trump sat down with CRTV host Eric Bolling.
In 2017, Bolling’s son died from an accidental opioid overdose after taking a fentanyl-laced Xanax while a during his sophomore year at the University of Colorado. Before going into the panel discussion, Bolling took a moment to share a heartfelt story about a series of surprise phone calls he received from the President and FIrst lady after his son’s death.
“As I said, Sept 8th of 2017, we got that phone call… The next morning we flew to CO, the University of Colorado where my son was going to school, and the phone rang while I’m sitting with the family doctor there, and it was President Trump calling and he was with Melania Trump the First Lady. And he said, ‘I can’t imagine what you’re going through but whatever you need, we’ll take care of it.'”
Bolling goes on to share about the second phone call he received from Trump and Melania just a couple months later:
“It was Thanksgiving and the phone rang again as we’re about to go sit down at the Thanksgiving table with the empty chair, the proverbial empty chair. And I knew it was going to be a disaster, the family had tears already. Phone rings again and it’s President Trump who says. ‘Im standing here with my wife Melania and we just wanted to let you know we’re thinking about you on the holiday.’ So at that moment I realized how much empathy and passion you have for this struggle.”
At this point, the entire crowd bursts into applause, showing their gratitude for our First Lady’s efforts in fighting the opioid crisis.
