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 ...

This is a man who still does not acknowledge his Mom is White.

Freedom of speach. What happened to that. We can't voice our opinions, because Obama is still trying to pull off black? Your Mother is still White.

irrespective of how you feel about your president, you don't go on live T.V and call your president a "d*ck". this is why the world think we Americans are totally dumb and stupid. if you don't respect your president don't expect Hugo Chavez to respect him or the guy from Iran.
its like calling your dad "d*ck" in public but expect me to call him something nice>>>>>>>>>>>>..........nah, i will call him "stupid d*ck" hahahaha

It's cable, not over the air, so who cares? The language is worse on HBO.

More people would agree with that comment, even remorseful voters from Massachusetts...

Michelle 6 hours ago Even if you're not a fan of the person in the office you really should have more respect for the office of the President. Obama was tough on lawmakers regarding the debt limit, comparing their procrastination to a school kid. "Sasha and Melia finish their homework a day early..." I may not like the comparison but he was trying to get a deal done by shaming the Congress into action even if it meant staying through the holiday weekend. Which by the way, the founding fathers worked on 07/04/1776!!!

I so want to know why we should with Obama in Office when most of you didn't when Bush was in office. I am glad someone from MSNBC Filey got some hair on there Buttt and saying what a good share of us are thinking or saying our selfs

If he is a **** he is a ****-be honest. Very sure he has been called worse than that. Yea he is a **** for cuting in on my Young and the Restless time for some stupid news conference- where as a waste of time- because people are still out of work and in debt and they keep helping the corporations. When they need to give the people money to get back on their feet, thats when I will look at the news conference.

Seems to me that the guy(s) in the back who said "yeah, the delay's up and running!" should get suspended as well. Mark only said what he said AFTER asking about the delay and being told all was well and to sally forth with whatever comments he wished to say.
