Fox News and Fox Business have suspended contributors Stacey Dash and Lt. Col. Ralph Peters for swearing on air Monday while discussion their reactions to President Barack Obama's Sunday night speech on terrorism.

Dash, an actress best known for her role in "Clueless," said today that Obama "couldn’t give a s**t" about the dangers posed by the Islamic State.

Earlier, Peters, a retired U.S. Army lieutenant colonel, had to be told by an anchor on the Fox Business Network that contributors can't use profane language on the news network after he called Obama a "p*ssy."

“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 Senior Executive Vice President of Programming Bill Shine said in a statement. "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.”
