MSNBC Analyst SUSPENDED for Calling Obama 'D*ck'

6/30/2011 11:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"Time" editor and MSNBC analyst Mark Halperin has been suspended indefinitely by the network after he called President Barack Obama a "d*ck" on live television ... and the footage is hilarious.

Mark dropped the d-bomb earlier today on the "Morning Joe" broadcast -- claiming he thought Obama was "kind of a d*ck yesterday" at the President's White House news conference.

Mark has since profusely apologized for the comment, but MSNBC followed through with the suspension anyway -- claiming his "comments this morning were completely inappropriate and unacceptable."

So we gotta ask ...

Sadly, I think 16 million unemployed American's might agree with that sterling description. Especially when it seems all the President wants to do lately is party with b & c list celebrities and golf while the economy is crumbling. Hey Prez why not give huge tax breaks to companies that hire people who have been unemployed more than a year. The economy would flourish again. No you cant think of that when you are partying it up with some hollywood celeb. How many stars say i just got a txt from Obama or I talked with the prez for an hour at a washington party. Makes me sick.

Do people not understand what free speech means in this country??? It means that you can say what you want with no fear of being executed or imprisoned for your beliefs. It DOES NOT mean you can say whatever you want without ANY repercussions from your employer? Geesh. Try calling your boss or a high ranking individual in your company a d*** and see if you have a job the next day.

It's ok Mark. You were just telling the truth. Anyway, it's called Freedom of Speech. I don't ever read or watch MSNBC anyway - just accidently saw this and thought it very unfair of MSNBC to suspend one of their analysts because he actually had an opinion that differed with theirs.

MSNBC execs are just bullying someone who did not spout their approved liberal agenda.

They've called George Bush and those in the Tea Party much worse. Maybe he was trying to level the field.
