The United States of America, the most powerful country in the world, has as our President an uncouth man who picks his nose in public on live TV.
We have as our First Lady a “woman” who scratches her crotch (see “First Lady of Itchy Crotch”) and lets her snot drip for more than 5 minutes while making a speech to America’s governors, all recorded on video. Beginning at the 14:20 mark in the video below, you’ll see a drop of mucus coming out of Mooch’s left nostril. (See “First Lady of Snot“)
Here’s a screenshot I took of the shiny droplet under Mooch’s left nostril at the 14:20 mark (click image to enlarge):
And now we find out we have in the White House — “the people’s house” — an official who calls the prime minister of Israel, Benjamin Netanyahu, a “chickenshit.”
This is the same Benjamin Netanyahu who joined the Israel Defense Forces during the Six-Day War in 1967, and became a team leader in the Sayeret Matkal special forces unit. He took part in many missions, including Operation Inferno (1968), Operation Gift (1968) and Operation Isotope (1972), during which he was shot in the shoulder. He fought on the front lines in the War of Attrition and the Yom Kippur War in 1973, taking part in special forces raids along the Suez Canal, and then leading a commando assault deep into Syrian territory. He was wounded in combat twice.
Doesn’t that just make you proud to be an American.
Kelly Cohen reports for the Washington Examiner, Oct. 28, 2014, that according to Jeffrey Goldberg of The Atlantic magazine, a senior Obama administration official recently described the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as “chickenshit.” That’s on top of calling Netanyahu “recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, and ‘Aspergery'” — as in someone with Asperger Syndrome, a type of autism.
Explaining the meaning behind calling the leader of an ally a “chickenshit,” the official told Goldberg, “The good thing about Netanyahu is that he’s scared to launch wars. The bad thing about him is that he won’t do anything to reach an accommodation with the Palestinians or with the Sunni Arab states. The only thing he’s interested in is protecting himself from political defeat. He’s not [Yitzhak] Rabin, he’s not [Ariel] Sharon, he’s certainly no [Menachem] Begin. He’s got no guts.”
A separate White House official told Goldberg that the administration believes Netanyahu to be a “coward” on the issue of Iran’s nuclear threat, no longer believing he would ever launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities.
Israeli officials have warned that Iran intends to build a nuclear weapons program.
Earlier this month, the Obama administration had denied reports that it planned to go around Congress on a nuclear arms deal with Iran.
