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.”

Crime scene outside Cincinnati, Ohio where state police shot FBI attacker Ricky Shiffer

Ricky Shiffer was like a lot of MAGA “patriots,” often proclaiming his willingness to die for Donald Trump. Like seemingly all Trump fans, he was outraged that the FBI served a search warrant on the ex-president’s Florida estate, eager to declare “civil war” on “the Deep State.” Shiffer was such a True Believer that on Thursday, he tried to attack the FBI office in Cincinnati, Ohio, and ended up dying next to a cornfield a few miles away.

Shiffer believed he was dying a martyr to the cause. But his only reward was for the community of terminally online Trumpists with whom he spent his time to immediately denounce him as a “crisis actor” who had performed a “false flag” operation with the sole purpose of smearing MAGA people by association.

Former President Donald Trump

Most Americans have long believed former President Donald Trump perpetrated multiple felony offenses both before and after entering the White House, according to opinion surveys — and yet those same citizens have also assumed that Trump would never be held accountable. But just at the moment that his escape from the law no longer seems quite so certain, the Republicans have almost all fallen into line behind him like lemmings.

There can be little doubt that the former president is in deep legal trouble. To evade the law, he is employing his usual tactics, from slick spin to torrential lying to feigned outrage to threats of mob violence, but mostly delay.
