Stacey Dash suspended by Fox over President Obama comments

Clueless star Stacey Dash has been suspended as a pundit for the Fox News network following remarks she made about President Barack Obama on a live show.

The fervent Republican was a guest contributor on news show Outnumbered when she took aim at Obama - and her profane comments landed her a two week on-air ban.


Appearing on Monday's (07Dec15) edition of the show, Dash attacked Obama's official comments about the San Bernardino shootings in California, stating, "I did not feel any better. I did not feel any passion from him. I felt like he couldn't give a s**t, excuse me, like he could care less."


Another Fox regular, Lt. Col. Ralph Peters, was also handed a two-week suspension for calling Obama "a total pussy" during a later interview.


Confirming the suspensions hours later, Bill Shine, Fox's senior executive vice president of programming, released a statement, which read: "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 Business Network and FOX News Channel do not condone the use of such language, and have suspended both Peters and Dash for two weeks."
