Eric Bolling, host of Fox News’ “The Five,” protested a potential military strike on Syria Wednesday afternoon by holding up a hand smeared with fake blood on live television.

“We should be careful before we shed any more blood, ours or theirs,” Bolling warned, his hand covered in ketchup. “This is not our war.”

“We need to stay out of the Middle East,” he added.

The odd display appeared to perplex Bolling’s co-hosts who asked where he purchased the ketchup for his protest.

Former Bush White House Press Secretary Dana Perino joked that he purchased the fake blood from the “Code Pink store.”
