A Fox News “strategic analyst” has been suspended after calling President Obama a “total p***y” during a Monday appearance on the Fox Business Network.

Ralph Peters will be off the air for two weeks, CNN reports. Peters was reacting to Obama’s Sunday night Oval Office speech on the threat of terrorism to the United States.

The retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel said Obama “doesn’t want to hurt our enemies,” after using the offensive language.

“Fox Business Network and Fox News Channel do not condone the use of such language,” Fox senior executive vice president Bill Shine said in a statement to CNN.

Peters was called out by Fox Business Network anchor Stuart Varney, who said “You can’t use language like that on the program, OK?” He also called for Peters to apologize.

Peters apologized for his anger and said “my choice of words was incorrect, but my sentiment, I think, is shared by many.”

He added that “the American people understand where I’m coming from on this,” and said he feels there needs to be stronger military action against ISIS.

Dash said on the noontime talk show “Outnumbered” that Obama showed he doesn’t “give a s**t” about terrorism.

“Earlier today, Fox contributors Lt. Col. Ralph Peters and Stacey Dash made comments on different programs that were completely inappropriate and unacceptable for our air,” Fox senior executive vice president Bill Shine told CNN in a statement.

In December 2014, he said Obama tried to romance Russian President Vladimir Putin and got “date raped.”

He has also called Obama “inept, ineffective and cowardly” on his Syria strategy and a “terrified little man in a great big job he can’t do.”

In addition to being a commentator on Fox News, Peters has written several fiction and non-fiction books. He uses the pen name Owen Parry for his spy thrillers.
