Ann Coulter Bleeped on MSNBC, Calls John McCain a "Douchebag"

If only news outlets would bleep out Ann Coulter's craziness more often. This morning, the conservative firebrand's comments were muted several times while she railed on Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), apparently calling him a "douchebag" on MSNBC's Morning Joe.

And to think, that's not nearly the most offensive and evil thing Coulter has said lately. However, after Mark Halperin was suspended this summer for calling President Barack Obama a "dick" on the show, producers weren't taking their chances, we assume.

Coulter was talking about consistency in politics, when she was cut off several

times for a total of 13 seconds -- as if her mic went out, according to a video of the exchange posted

by Politico. Host Joe Scarborough had asked that the segment be censored, but viewers were able to glean from the conversation that followed.

When the sound came back, Coulter seemed surprised and asked:  "What did I say? 'Douchebag'?"

Scarborough then states "Just blur it all out," to which

Coulter responds, "Okay, well, they got the general drift of that."

Here's your chance to see Coulter censored.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
