NEW YORK, Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Conservative pundit Ann Coulter Tuesday called U.S. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a "douche bag" on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" television program.
Producers for former Rep. Joe Scarborough's program failed in an attempt to censor Coulter's choice words to describe the 2008 Republican presidential nominee, who said she prefers conservatives who stick to principles.
Coulter's commentary was silenced three separate times for a total of 13 seconds, Politico reported.
"What did I say? Oh, douche bag," Coulter was heard saying once she realized her audio had been cut.
"Just blur it all out," Scarborough told producers in the control room.
"OK, well they got the general drift of that," Coulter said. "Consistency is not a great thing, and especially someone like John McCain who consistently annoyed conservatives, bragged about annoying conservatives, and would claim he was courageous by attacking conservatives and getting good press in The New York Times."
