'The Talk' Ladies Discuss Mark Halperin's Presidential Gaffe (VIDEO)

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."
