Time magazine editor Mark Halperin has been suspended “indefinitely” from his analyst job at MSNBC after he said President Barack Obama was acting like “kind of a dick” during his Thursday appearance on Morning Joe. Halperin repeatedly asked hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski if the tv show’s “dump button” was working. Egged on by Scarborough, Halperin then drops his d-bomb.
A horrified Halperin comes back from break and profusely apologizes to President Obama. Pay particular attention to the cringeworthy performance by Scarborough who promptly throws both his entire crew and the Time editor under the bus in an effort to absolve himself of any responsibility.
