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 ...

Freedom of speech!! Why weren't the other people suspended they were telling him to go and do it and that there was a delay!! He did ask before he said it and they said that they did push the button! The person that was to push the button should be one one to be let go!! Or was it plan this way?? Think about it! Obama is a d**k!

Freedom of Speech    


Mark Halperin asked for a 7-second delay and warned the bleep button controller well in advance, saying that he wanted to give his opinion on how the president acted- He used a colloquial term for jackass- jeez!!! what an overreaction!!! Everyone said much worse about Bush and no one had a problem with it. Suspending this guy is going WAY overboard!

You don't regret your remark. You regret being caught on live TV saying it. "Out of the abundance of the heart does the mouth speak." -- Suspended indefinite ly....No, you should be FIRED!!! And next time, before you seek to remove the splinter out of someone else's eye, get the mote out of your own. -- Geez, WHAT AN IGNORAMUS, and a condescend ing one at that!

I bet Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton are gonna make a stop by a few 1000000 shows to comment on it... who cares it's the truth. If this would of been said about Bush there would of been a parade.

Yet, they call Bachmann and Palin every obscene name in the book and that is acceptable.

Calling Obama a **** is being nice.

Apparently you can say anything you want to on MSNBC about a republican (Bush is an idiot, Palin is a stupid B*itch!) But you call the great Obama a **** and you are suspended? If they were a real news organization they wouldn't allow either. But when you are in the pocket of Obama and the dems, Keep your mouth shut and follow the program!!

Reality Realist    

Obama has no respect for the office of the President... heck he doesn't even like this country. So why worry about "disrespecting the office" of the President by calling him what he really is on national TV. He already does plenty of it himself.

When will MSNBC wake up to these idiots? Owners need to clean house and get rid of Mika, Morning Joe and Ed Schultz.
