The guy who’s supposed to be the coolest President is history lost his cool after being publicly humiliated by Benjamin Netanyahu.
This is our favorite story of the week. Maybe the month. Hands down. Nothing else even comes close.
NewsFavor has details of the President’s outburst:
Shortly after the photo-op meeting and “working lunch” with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the one that saw President Obama openly chastised by the Prime Minister for Obama’s earlier public comments regarding wanting to see Israel return to its 1967 borders, the president verbally “went off” on Richard Daley in the private study area that adjoins the Oval Office. President Obama’s verbal attack was clearly heard by numerous staff up and down the West Wing hallways.
The essence of the president’s rage and embarrassment can best be summed up with him yelling out very loudly, “What the f-ck was that!?” That phrase was apparently repeated a number of times in the span of about five minutes, a time period in which Obama’s voice became “louder and louder” and culminating in Obama exclaiming, “Never again! Do you understand me? Never again!” Any response by Bill Daley back to the president, if given, was not overheard.
Do you think anyone in the Obama administration sees the irony in Obama using the words “Never again!” in this situation?
