Oh… My… God! Please tell me that your children and elderly grandparents and still-really-supportive-of-Obama-for-some-reason spouse wasn't watching Time editor Mark Halperin on MSNBC's Morning Joe this morning. Because there was a horrible, horrible word said.
Look, I don't even want to say the word that Halperin used to describe President Obama because it is far too upsetting. But you're gonna find out eventually if you perchance to look at the Internet today, and it's best that you should hear it from someone who genuinely cares about you.
So, I'll just say that it begins D, ends with ick and rhymes with prick…
Mark Halperin, editor-at-large for Time, called President Obama "a dick" on Thursday on a popular MSNBC morning show and then quickly apologized.
"I thought he was a dick yesterday," Halperin, who also is a senior political analyst for MSNBC, said on Morning Joe, referring to the President's conduct during his press conference…
Just minutes later, Halperin quickly apologized to the president and viewers for his choice of words. "Joking aside, this is an absolute apology. I shouldn’t have said it. I apologize to the president and the viewers who heard me say that," Halperin said.
Somebody get the smelling salts! My entire readership has just swooned in unison onto their fainting couches! Medic! Medic!
Oh, you're back! Thank god. I was afraid we lost you for good.
Don't worry, though. That horrible man who used that inconceivably awful word about our President has been suspended. And rightfully so! Just who did he think he was, using such crass language in the discourse of modern politics. There is no place for such base ruminations in this most lofty of subjects? Where did he get off?
What an asshole.
