Political Showdown! Boehner To Reid: “Go F— Yourself!”
The fight between Republicans and Democrats leading up to the late night passage of the fiscal cliff bill was heated and intense!
During a verbal altercation in the White House lobby, House Speaker John Boehner (R) told Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) to “go f— yourself!” last Friday. Boehner, who’s known for overwhelmed with emotion, was in a fit of rage after the Democratic leader publicly accused him of heeding to the GOP’s partisan agenda rather than the needs of the American people.
“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,” said Reid on the Senate floor.
Moments later, Boehner charged at the Senate leader with an aggressive pointer finger and harsh words. When Reid asked him what he was talking about, Boehner charged at him again yelling, “Go f— yourself!”
According to POLITICO, several witnesses overheard the altercation between the two congressman in the White House lobby. Just another day in Washington, DC!
