So it turns out you actually can go overboard at bashing President Obama on a Fox News media outlet.

During an appearance Monday morning on the Fox Business Channel, military analyst Ralph Peters lambasted the president’s handling of ISIS by using an obscenity live on the air — calling the Commander-in-Chief a “pussy.”

We should point out that Fox Business has not posted this particular video segment to their site. Hmm — perhaps there’s a vulgar word for that kind of craven shame and cowardice?

But you can click above to watch!

“This guy is such a total pussy, it’s stunning,” Peters declared. “We the people — the American people — who he does not know in any intimate sort of manner — we want action. We want action against the Islamic state.”

Peters also made this remarkable statement: “This is a president who has done more harm to American police departments, than he has done to Islamic State.” Wait a second — has Obama assembled a multinational coalition to fly literally thousands of airstrikes against police departments — as he’s actually done with ISIS?

Anchorman Stuart Varney worked to extract an apology from Peters: “You used some very strong language there about the president of the United States. And I’m the anchor of Varney & Co. — and I have to ask you, either you should apologize for that or take it back.”

Peters indeed apologized, as asked of him — though not really.

“I am angry — I do apologize for giving in to my anger,” he answered. “But I’m — I feel like, you know, the American people understand where I’m coming from on this. My choice of words was incorrect — but my sentiment, I think, is shared by many.”

Donald Trump Delivers Speech At Arizona Rally

Almost a year after Joe Biden was sworn in as president of the United States, former President Donald Trump continues to be the target of multiple investigations — from Fulton County District Attorney Fani Willis in Georgia to Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg, Jr. to New York State Attorney General Letitia James, who has been probing the Trump Organization’s financial activities. This week, James alleged that her office’s investigation shows a history of “fraudulent or misleading” financial practices. And according to New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman, these investigations can be used to predict whether or not Trump will run for president in 2024.

When NBC News’ Tom Winter described James’ investigation in a Twitter thread, Haberman responded:

President Joe Biden

Washington (AFP) - Joe Biden sought to reset his presidency in a marathon press conference Wednesday, vowing to reconnect with voters in his second year and touting what he said were his unprecedented successes.

"Can you think of any other president that's done as much in one year?" Biden asked, ticking off the epic struggle against Covid-19 and trillions of dollars in government funding to save the US economy from pandemic fallout.
