State Sen. Dave Thompson cracks Obama “pussy” joke

itemprop

Dave Thompson, noted Twitter badass, challenged the president's toughness earlier this week.



Earlier this week a retired army guy and Fox Business Network analyst got into some hot water for calling President Obama a “total pussy.” On the air.

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters was reacting to Obama’s Sunday night address on terrorism when he got so worked up that British host Stuart Varney had to implore him to “calm down, lad.” Peters launched into a tirade that peaked (or valleyed) when the military man dropped the p-bomb on Obama. His furrowed-brow rant demanded more “action” from Obama against ISIS. But here’s the first half, in all of its fist-shaking splendor.

“Well, first of all, he keeps speaking about ‘we can't give into our fears.’ You know, ‘don't be afraid,’” Peters began, gradually raising his voice. “Look, Mr. President, we’re not afraid. We're angry. We’re pissed off. We're furious. We want to see you react. We want you to do something. You’re afraid.

“I mean, this guy is such a total pussy, it's stunning.”



For what it’s worth, Stephen Colbert regularly calls ISIS — not America’s leader — “a bunch of pussies” on stricter network television. But Peters’ foul mouth earned him a two-week suspension from Fox and a solidarity tweet from state Sen. Dave Thompson, R-Lakeville. On Wednesday night, Thompson had “pussy” jokes on his mind and found a picture of Obama looking like a nerdy dad and proponent of bicycle safety.

Several people, including a PiPress political reporter, suggested that the south-of-the-river senator was out of line and maybe even anti-bicycle? Others had Thompson’s back.


Thompson declined to comment, saying only that the tweet "stands on its own."

However one feels about the joke or the unbecoming language he parroted, Thompson’s quip raises serious questions about Obama’s manliness. Sure, he gave us his birth certificate, but how much can he bench? Has he ever punched a bear? When the men’s room is crowded, does he spit into the urinal to assert himself before unzipping?

All we really know about Obama’s tough-guy tendencies is that he doesn’t have a man bun. That’s not the kind of transparency the American people deserve.
