Failed President Barack Obama reportedly lost it on his staff, launching into a vulgar tirade after being dressed down by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu over his comments about Israel retreating to its 1967 borders.
Hell hath no fury like a man woefully and very publicly in over his head.
The report indicates that Chief of Staff Richard Daley took the brunt of the narcissistic President’s anger when the President repeatedly yelled “What the f-ck was that?” at him in a “private study area that adjoins the Oval Office.”
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.
Daley was soon after seen walking slowly down the hallway back toward his own office. He appeared “unconcerned” and was walking alone. His mood was apparently good enough that he took the time to speak briefly with some junior staffers before continuing down the hall. There was no sign of the president, though Valerie Jarrett did make an appearance on her way into the Oval Office. This was viewed as somewhat of a rare thing as Jarrett has apparently not been seen much on the lower levels of the West Wing for the last month or so. Neither she nor the president was seen for some time after that. The president did not emerge until it was time to make another brief speech at a nearby location later that afternoon.
