UPDATE: At the end of the show, Bolling clarified his remarks, saying: "I have to clarify something very quickly. You remember when I said Obama, he answers to the Quran before the Constitution? What I meant was, rather than appeasing the Muslims, he should worry about free speech first. That's it. I'm done with it, and I don't want to hear about it."

BOLLING: -- for that man to be brought in. There's no reason for him to be brought in and questioned.
BECKEL: That is the most -- of all the things you've said, and I love you, brother, but that's the most outrageous statement I've ever heard [unclear].
