Mark Halperin – GONE For Obama Joke
News anchors have been getting into alot of trouble lately – they must really feel that since they’re in front of a television camera, they have free reign to say any nonsense that pops into their brain.
Well, Mark Halperin is the latest in a string of suspensions that MSNBC has issued over the past year. He somehow felt compelled to call the President “a dick” and didn’t think anything of it. As a matter of fact, he thought it was funny – watch the video below
Halperin apologized after the other hosts on the ‘Morning Joe’ show realized that the show’s new executive producer was not familiar with the seven-second delay button.
“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.
“We’re going to have a meeting after the show,” Scarborough said.
Scarborough also made light of the incident, telling his producer, “I would tell you what I think of him, but he doesn’t know what button to push.”
None of this is funny at all !!
