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.”

Ken Bennett, the Arizona State Senate's liaison to its review of 2020's presidential election ballots, threatened to resign from that post live on conservative talk radio on Monday, saying that Cyber Ninjas, the Senate's pro-Trump contractors, have concealed their results from him for months and could even be manipulating audit data.
