Ret. Lt. Col. Ralph Peters ranted to Fox Business on Monday that President Barack Obama was a “total pussy” because he had not announced new military action against terrorists in his speech from the Oval Office on Sunday night.
“First of all, he keeps speaking about we can’t give into our fears,” Peters explained to Fox’s Stuart Varney. “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.”
“This guy is such a total pussy, it is stunning,” he continued. “We the people — American people who he does not know in any intimate sort of manner, we want action. We want action against the Islamic state.”
Peters continued his rant for another minute before Varney stepped in with a light slap on the wrist.
“I can tell you are super angry,” Varney noted. “And I asked you what your reaction was. But I’ve got to call you — you can’t use language like that on the program.”
“Sorry,” Peters replied.
“Okay,” Varney laughed.
After Peters complained about the president for another minute, Varney decided to deliver a stronger rebuke, likely after receiving some advice from his producer.
“You used some very strong language there about the president of the United States,” Varney said. “And I’m the anchor of Varney & Co. and I have to ask you, [you] either should apologize for that or take it back.”
“I apologize,” Peters offered. “My choice of words was incorrect but my sentiment, I think, is shared by many.”

Fox News pundit: Tax returns ruling against Trump is ‘a win for him’ and ‘will help the president’
Fox News pundit Katie Pavlich argued on Thursday that a Supreme Court ruling which opened the door for prosecutors to obtain Donald Trump's tax returns is actually "a win" for the president.
Pavlich made the remarks after the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance can request the president's tax records in a public corruption case.
"I think it's a win and a little bit of a loss for President Trump," Pavlich explained. "In the sense that he will now have to deal with a number of these issues and other presidents in the future will as well, whether they are valid requests for information or not and whether they are being made for political for reasons or for valid criminal investigations."
‘All nine justices’ rejected Trump’s claim of absolute immunity: CNN’s Toobin
On Thursday, following the Supreme Court's 7-2 ruling that President Donald Trump's taxes are not immune from the Manhattan criminal investigation, CNN chief legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin broke down the implications of the decision.
"All nine justices reject the position put forth by the president's lawyers in this case," said Toobin. "All nine justices say that the president does not have absolute immunity from a subpoena, and all nine agree that the case has to go back to district court."
"This is a legal defeat for the president, but it may be a practical victory," added Toobin. "The idea that the president can't be subpoenaed is completely rejected but the Supreme Court, and that even the two dissenting justices agree on ... the practical victory for the president is that the legal proceedings will continue. It seems unlikely, given this opinion, that the president will ultimately be able to stop the disclosure of these events to the grand jury in Manhattan, but it's going to take time. I mean, this process will begin again. The district court will get briefings. They may hear evidence. That will be appealed to the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, and then losing party will likely go back to the Supreme Court. All of this will take a while."
