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 ...

I agree, it's over the top and unnecessary whether you like or loathe mr. Obama. However, mr. Obama doens't do himself any favors with his childish and vindictive demeanor that brings on these comparisions. Since when do Presidents "DO" Afganistan or Bin Laden?? The President of the United States should be above being hip, especially since he is showing that he isn't very.

I think the execs were a little harsh on the punishment. I mean, after all, no one watches MSNBC so no harm, no foul, right?

You people that don't think a news editor shouldn't be suspended for calling the President a **** on live television are morons. Go play on Facebook simpletons.

I don't usually copy posts but this one was really just classic. The double negative is brilliant.

So ultimately what you're saying simply, is "You people that think a news editor should be suspended for calling the President a **** on live television are morons."

Just clarifying.

MSNBC needs to apologize for a lot of things (Chris Matthews topping the list). But I feel sorry for this guy. He asked if there was a 7 second delay, he was told repeatedly that there was, even the director in the booth said yes and then the two hosts egged him on, told him to speak his mind. The very fact that he asked about it should have told them he was going to say something that might need to be bleeped. Of all those involved, I see him as the least of the offenders. They set him up, then threw him under the bus.

MSNBC should suspend the guy who was supposed to bleep him. The white house has thin skin.That little PR weasel Carney is a whiner. This is the big leagues boys. Gotta be able to take the heat. So this guy calls the president a ****? so what? Lighten up this is America we still get to say what we think. I wish our idiotic president and his little PR weasel would worry more about the country going broke than some guy calling the president a ****.
