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."
