Mark Halperin must be watching too much Tracy Morgan stand-up.
During a live appearance on MSNBC's Morning Joe today, the political analyst was asked about President Obama's behavior yesterday during a meeting with Republicans, inquired about whether or not the show was on a seven-second delay and then said:
The President "acted like a dick." Watch the host's stunned reaction to the insult now:
Halperin, who co-authored the book "Game Change," has been suspended indefinitely by the network and said in a statement:
"I want to offer a heartfelt and profound apology to the president, to my MSNBC colleagues, and to the viewers. My remark was unacceptable, and I deeply regret it."
Should he have been punished?
