Fox News host: Firing abusive Rutgers coach is "wussification" of America (Credit: YouTube)

Fox News host Eric Bolling called Rutgers University’s decision to fire abusive men’s basketball coach Mike Rice the “wussification” of America. Rice was fired after video surfaced of him throwing basketballs at players and verbally abusing them with anti-gay slurs.

Bolling went on to complain:

This story kind of infuriates me. We’re in the midst of political correctness crushing our ability to teach kids, to discipline kids, to disagree with people or one another or kids. Our culture is in decline, but this is an example of our culture in free fall. And I’m saying this because he got fired, not because of what he did… Listen, it’s time to toughen up. Talk about the wussification of America, the wussification of American men.
