Penn State Alumnus Suspended for Calling President Obama A Pussy On Live TV

With more than 500,000 living alumni, Penn State is bound to have some — uhh — interesting characters among its ranks. One such alumnus, Ralph Peters (class of 1976), made some news on Monday after delivering what can charitably be described as an interesting take during a live interview on Fox News’ Varney & Co. show.

Peters, a retired United States Army lieutenant colonel and political commentator, was asked by host Stuart Varney for his thoughts on President Barack Obama’s oval office terrorism address from the previous night. Peters enlisted in the Army in 1976 after studying writing at Penn State and served for 22 years.

“This guy is such a total pussy it’s stunning,” Peters said, after a long diatribe about the President’s foreign policy strategy.

Later in the broadcast Varney scolded Peters for his language, saying “I can tell you are super angry, and I asked you what your reaction was, but you can’t use language like that on the program.”

Peters was suspended by Fox News for two weeks following the incident. Fox senior executive vice president of programming Bill Shine said the language “was completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air.”
