Wednesday at the White House daily briefing, press secretary Josh Earnest deflected questions about the report from Jeffrey Goldberg that an anonymous Obama administration official called Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu a “chickensh*t,” by attacking Speaker of the House John Boehner (R-OH).
Boehner blasted President Barack Obama in a statement released Wednesday afternoon saying, “When the president discusses Israel and Iran, it is sometimes hard to tell who he thinks is America’s friend and who he thinks is America’s enemy. The House of Representatives has no trouble drawing that distinction.”
When the comments were brought up Earnest attacked Boehner saying his “salty language” is infamous, “So, it’s a little rich to have a lecture about profanity from the Speaker of the House.”
