Fox News Analyst Ralph Peters: Obama Is a ‘Total P*ssy’

Retired Lt. Col. Ralph Peters seems to have an obsession with President Obama’s masculinity.

President Barack Obama is a “total pussy,” says Fox News strategic analyst Lt. Col. Ralph Peters.

The retired army officer turned frequent Fox pundit made the comments Monday morning on the Fox Business Network in response to Obama’s Sunday evening Oval Office address on the threat of terrorism.

Asked by Varney & Co. host Stuart Varney what he shouted at his television during the speech, Peters obliged: “[Obama] keeps speaking about we can’t give into our fears, don’t be afraid. Look, Mr. President, we’re not afraid, we’re angry, we’re pissed off, we’re furious! We want you to react, do something. You’re afraid.”

Peters continued: “This guy is such a total pussy, it is stunning.” This is a president who “cares more about thugs in Ferguson, Missouri, than he does about law-abiding American citizens,” he added.

Varney gently chided his guest for the name-calling, saying, “I can tell you’re super angry but... you can’t use language like that on the program. I’m sorry.”

The remarks seem part of Peters’s fixation on the president’s masculinity. Earlier this year, he declared the president “not manly enough” to effectively combat terrorism abroad. He also compared the president and his supporters to “bitchy little high school girls” for their treatment of Israeli President Benjamin Netanyahu.

UPDATE, 3:45 p.m. ET—Ralph Peters has been suspended two weeks from the network along with colleague Stacey Dash, who later Monday said on-air that President Obama does not “give a shit” about terrorism. “Earlier today, FOX contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air,” the network’s senior executive vice president of programming, Bill Shine, said in a statement. “FOX Business Network and FOX News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks.”
