Bob Beckel Butchers Reince Preibus' Name, Calls Him 'Free Pussy' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Oh, Bob Beckel.

The designated liberal Fox News host got severely tongue-tied on Monday's "The Five" and seemed to mistake RNC chairman Reince Priebus' last name with a less than appropriate word.

The slip occurred when "Five" co-host Eric Bolling mentioned an upcoming Politico e-book that says that President Obama dislikes presumptive GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Beckel weighed in on the discussion, saying that he could understand if the president disliked Romney. "I think when [Obama] started out, he was neutral about Mitt Romney, and frankly, so was I. I thought he was a nice guy," Beckel said.

He continued, "I've come to believe he is a terrible—well I won't say liar, I wont diminish myself to where Republicans or free pussy or prepus—"

"Let's move on!" Bolling interjected as co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle put her hands over her mouth.

It seemed as though Beckel brought up Preibus' name to reference the RNC chairman calling Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid a "dirty liar" in light of Reid's claim that Romney did not pay taxes for 10 years.

Beckel meant to say that he would not call Romney a liar because he would not "diminish" himself to Preibus' level by using that word, but viewers were left with garbled, tongue-tied profanity instead.
