Video: MSNBC host has her “corpse-man” moment

Some things are just too priceless to let go by unnoticed. Remember President Obama’s “corpse-man” moment when he was trying to refer to US Navy medical Corpsmen — and he said it twice?

Well, now Melissa Harris-Perry on MSNBC gives us a comical liberal progressive moment relating to our military. We all know — well some of us do — the motto of the United States Marine Corps (not corpse) of Semper Fidelis, Latin for Always Faithful.

Marines and those of us who have served with Marines often use the motto as a greeting and a means to pay respect, regard and homage, Semper Fi. Marines always pronounce the Fi with a hard “I” rhyming with “rye.” However, Ms. Harris-Perry has created a new Marine Corpse motto, Semper Fee. Yep, you can’t make this stuff up folks.

I just hope she never tries to pronounce the respective battle calls of the military: Hooah (Army), Hooyah (Navy SEALS), or Ooh Rah (Marines).

how can someone be that stupid… It goes to show how they ignored (this idiot and B&M Obama) the general elements of realistic living in the United States as a Patriot… Now that they are in front of the public, they just make fools out of themselves…

they are stupid, obama and Melissa because they know NOTHING about OUR military. Some people should just stay the hell out of public hearing range, especially MSNBC and obama

DosDim

Does ANYTHING that qualifies as “stupid speak” and comes from the mouth’s of MSNBC on air morons shock you? I believe a good percentage of their viewership is journalists and bloggers just waiting for their next truly stupid statement.

You guys are being so mean with the jokes, lol! Keep it up, please! I heard this dingbat wore tampons as earrings too! Liberals really should be certified as Mentally Ustable, especially Obama, and removed from office for the safety and well being of our Nation. Gitmo should be his next extended vacation!

Have you heard “your mamma’s so stupid she voted for Obama twice”? Well not only did MY MAMA vote for him twice, so did my brother. My father was always a conservative Republican. It baffles my mind that my mother and brother admittedly voted for BHO twice and think he is doing a great job. WTF?! I give up!

I had a sister like that, who thought Obama could walk on water, lol! She died last May of Cancer. Sure miss arguing with her, lol! My wife of over 40 years is a Socialist. She is Austrian and we live in Austria, and she votes for the SPÖ (Socialist Peoples Party) each election! I give her hell, lol! I still use my Voting Rights in each election, State and Federal. Will never give that Right up!

I’m going to go out on a limb and say that if she can’t even pronounce a Marine motto properly (I’m guessing I’ve heard it 50 times, and I’m not in the millitary), there’s probably just a “few” other things she doesn’t know about the Marines or the millitary for that matter…

Or, pretty much anything in general. But, she doesn’t have to worry about not knowing anything………….she is with MSNBC.

Good God. Idiocy abounds at MSNBC.

Yeah, and I am unfortunately saddled with a confirmed liberal idiot. His father who was a highly decorated WW 2 veteran & buried in Ft. McPherson cemetery here in Nebraska. I am positive that his father is spinning like a top in his grave. I hate his political views. Sad to say I am regretting this marriage, shouldn’t have married him, his personality has turned 180% to being Uber-liberal. Must be Alzheimers.

Mike
Guest

It is pathetic that she has never heard a Marine say this on TV or THE NEWS!!

This is a PERFECT example of Liberals pretending they know something when they don’t.
Ever reading and Google searching to look like they know something. Liberals! Temper duh!

Every time she opens her mouth, she proves that she is as stupid as she looks. Hmmmm. is she related to Obama?

Why is she still on the air? Is MSNBullScheit THAT hard-up for talking heads?

Wow. What an ignoramus.

James Morrison

She’s even more stupid than she looks, and that’s not easy. Veterans like myself cringe when we hear know nothing liberals spout off opinions about things like the Marine Corps motto and can’t even be bothered to get it right. Haven’t any liberals that she’s met in her lifetime ever served in the military? She is pathetically underinformed.

Sarah Nelson

We had a commander in Chief Bush43 who had served in the Marines and couldn’t pronounce NUCLEAR – apparently that is fine with Cons … seriously, your double standards are shocking.

SandyT
Guest

Actually, Bush 43 was not a Marine, Sarah, he was in the Texas Air National Guard, and there are many people who don’t pronounce nuclear properly. One of my pet peeves is the word realtor, usually mis-pronounced re-la-tor, instead of real-tor. Mis-pronouncing words is not a left/right thing.

DoBoChet
Guest

Sarah Nelson you Moron. G H W Bush was an WW II Navy Fighter Pilot. G W Bush was in the air National Guard. Niether was in The Marines

Tina
Guest
That’s funny because we aren’t discussing Bush but nice attempt there to divert attention away from the liberal who JUST said this to the republican who has been out of office and hasn’t said nuclear in 6 years. How irrelevant is he now? Shall we assume this twit is also that irrelevant? If so, who keeps letting her talk and stick her foot in her mouth? She seems to do that weekly. Give it up Miss Sarah, this broad is ignorant. She ruined herself when she tried to convince everyone their children aren’t really theirs. No one can take her… Read more »

Actually, he served in the Air Force. You may not know the difference, but there is one. His pronunciation of the word nuclear is a very common one, “Semper Fee” is one I’ve never heard before.

Mike
Guest

His problem wasn’t purposeful but was southern drawl related from being from Texas.

Stop being a MORON.

You liberals are truly amazing with your mind numbing ignorance.

And even funnier was hypocrite extraordinaire Whoopie Goldberg making fun of G.W. with HER idiodic pronounciation of ‘nuclear’. LOOK IT UP!!

what is shocking is you libs didn’t bat an eye when they made fun of Mitt Romney’s grandchild but you love to play the race card for everything. for a lesson in double standards, check out how the people who wrote Obamacare don’t have to participate in it.

Stupid. Even with her speech impediment she should know proper pronounciation of the English language. Why is she on a news program….

Linda Patterson

she is not on a new program, she is on a network that plays at doing the news, she might have 3 viewers.

Sarah Nelson

It’s LATIN wise chick ….it’s not English.

Its funny all these other people had something to say to you and your 1 response was that. You are a special someone

Mike

Semper FI LONG EYE sound has been the way the Marines say it!!

When you shorten a word pronunciation of the second syllable often changes!!

IF you were reading Jack and the Beanstalk, when you came across the Giant speaking would you say FEE FEE FO FUM or FEE FI FO FUM?

YOU SOUND STUPID TRYING TO JUSTIFY MHP

STOP Playing Liberal Political deny reality games.

jeanbean14
Guest
Stop. It’s not that she is wiser than the marines, it’s that she has never heard the phrase in her life. Stop defending her. She’s dumb. She’s racist. (She said parents should be able to decide when their child becomes a child, including up to 2 years after it’s born, and should be allowed to “terminate” the child’s life during that “4th trimester” if they wish.) She is evil and dumb, and this is one more example of her disconnection from civil society. She is a fake intellectual. Why are you defending her obvious ignorance and trying to recast it… Read more »

Marines shortened and mispronounced a LATIN word – let’s get it right http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyjvC5GlBOM FIDELIS – it’s a short I pronounced as ‘e’ IN LATIN.

We’ll pronounce it however we please. I think we’ve earned it

Are you REALLY trying to justify this for MHP because you are liberal and black too?

WT F are you talking about. She wasn’t just blindly speaking Latin, she was quoting the MARINES motto. Feebly, with a lisp. Suffering succotash!

Love how Liberals protect thier racist MSNBC queen! This horrible horrible racist should’ve been fired!

Cheryl Davis Miller

It is the Marines motto; they can pronounce it as they wish. Kind of like how we are suppose to change tests and eventually scores for some who don’t pronounce words correctly.

David Wright

You would have been better served stopping at the end of your first sentence.

You are right sir, I allowed frustration from this and other such debates along racial lines to creep in. I do however disagree with the subject, I mentioned.

That’s even better than the state senator in California with his “ghost gun” that shoots 30 rounds, or maybe it was a clip of 10 magazines of 30 rounds each, in half a second. People who don’t know what they are talking about should follow the wise advice of Ben Franklin: “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and remove all doubt.”

Claire Garcia

Maybe she meant “Always Charging (a fee)”???

And just where did the Idiot-in-Chief serve? Oh, that’s right, the Idiot hates our military and didn’t even have the cajones to join the Air National Guard!!! He was out smoking pot and snorting cocaine!!!

Mike
Guest
Any liberal who comes here and blames Bush or justifies her mistake or tries to talk about the second syllable in the word Fidelis is a complete moron. Bush as NOTHING to do with this, MHP clearly didn’t know how to pronounce FI. The second syllable of a word means nothing when you shorten it as for as pronunciation goes. STOP trying to justify the ONLY Obvious point that has been made!!! That point is that she has never heard MARINES say Semper FI before! We KNOW she only mentioned them to gain some sort of favor. We know she… Read more »
bowhuntress

Actually, the correct pronunciation of the latin “Fi” is “fee” (fidelis correctly pronounced “fee del ees”which would show her educational training (maybe- I have heard enough things come out of her mouth that show her lack of education) but total lack of common sense or commonality with the rest of the nation who know that it is currently pronounced Semper Fi (Semper Fye).

Lonnie
Guest

actual pronunciation would be “fee day lis.”

Mike
Guest

I am going to say this for the third time now.

Just because a words second syllable is pronounced a certain way doesn’t mean the shortened form is pronounced the same way.

Jon Weiss

Well, she was just paraphrasing the lyrics of a song by “Meatloaf”, “Two out of three ain’t bad.” . Only in her case it’s more like “meat head”, and “One out of two ain’t bad.” a day late and a subject short.

I think her brain is “Semper Fried”.

I used to work in news, this woman exceeds the normal standard for moronic puppet anchors. This is the gold standard for clueless liberal media delivery.
