John Boehner Told Harry Reid 'Go F--- Yourself' Outside the Oval Office
By Dashiell Bennett | The Atlantic Wire
Its sad to know that the GOP no longer have any civility or respect for their office than a common street thug. This is beyond sour grapes and sore loser. Have those who've been entrusted with the integrity and ethics of the nation stooped to conversing like gutter trash. Its obvious the Republican party will probably never mend itself and will forever remain with the dregs of societies dirt bag lawyers and financiers.
Speaker John Boehner curses Harry Reid, not once but twice, this according to witnesses. Last Friday, while the fiscal cliff loomed, the Speaker of the House reportedly cursed the Senate Majority Leader after being labeled a "dictator."
Citing a Jan. 2 Politico report, Boehner cursed Reid without warning, even as no deal was in sight for averting the so-called fiscal cliff.
The drama unfolded on the day the men both met with the president on a possible bipartisan agreement that could prevent taxes for all Americans and business from rising.
Allegedly, Speaker Boehner eyed Reid outside the Oval Office and, without warning, took a snipe at his Democratic colleague.
"Go f— yourself," Boehner said, while pointing a finger to emphasis the expletive.
Reid's response was one of shock and awe, for sure.
"What are you talking about?" Reid asked.
Boehner double-downed on his previous remark and said, "Go f— yourself."
While it's no secret there is no love between the two veteran lawmakers, it was obvious that Boehner cursed Reid in response to a televised speech made the day before in which the House Speaker was referred to as running a "dictatorship."
"The American people I don't think understand the House of Representatives is operating without the House of Representatives. It's being operated by a dictatorship of the speaker, not allowing the vast majority of the House of Representatives to get what they want," Reid said in a harsh response to the GOP playing hardball over the fiscal cliff.
While many may be gasping at such a break in decorum, insiders say the behavior between adversaries is often handled in a matter of words.
