Leah Remini, Sara Gilbert, and Sharon Osbourne on 'The Talk'Thursday morning on 'Morning Joe,' Mark Halperin of Time Magazine and MSNBC said he thought President Obama was "kind of a dick" in his recent press conference. Halperin was quickly suspended by MSNBC, and critiques of his comment poured in from all corners, including a couple on Thursday's edition of 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS).

Holly Robinson Peete started the discussion on a lighter note, saying, "There hasn't been a man called 'Dick' in the oval office since President Richard Nixon." Leah Remini said she liked the fact that the president could be kind of a dick. "I don't know, I like to hear that people are like hard-asses a little bit, especially our president," she said.

Sharon Osbourne said that wasn't the context in which Halperin used the term. "He didn't say 'this guy is a ball-buster, he's a toughie,'" said Osbourne. "He did it in a very disrespectful way."

Several minutes later, Halperin issued an on-air apology to the President and to viewers.

MSNBC released a statement after the incident explaining Halperin's suspension.

Could Donald Trump be thinking about a possible 2012 presidential run? Time Magazine political reporter Mark Halperin was on 'Morning Joe' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on MSNBC) Monday, and he provided some evidence that The Donald is thinking about asking the American people to hire him as Commander-in-Chief.

"Someone in September did a lot of polling in New Hampshire asking a lot of questions about Trump," Halperin reported. "The Republican field is so weak and so unsettled . . . if Trump decides to run as a Republican, I think as we've seen in the past, he knows how to get attention."

Of course, implicit in any Trump presidency would be name changes to certain hallowed presidential institutions. For example, the White House would embarrassingly become the Trump White House, Air Force One would be renamed Trump Airlines, and the Vice President would be renamed The Apprentice.
