If Obamas outright hatred of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was not already obvious, this latest stunt takes the cake.
While speaking with CNN on behalf of the White House this morning, David Simas not only refused to congratulate Netanyahu on his recent victory, he refused to call the Prime Minister by name. Behaving like a teenage girl jilted that she did not win Homecoming Queen, Simas took the opportunity to instead congratulate the Israeli people on engaging in the democratic process.
What a joke…

We want to congratulate the Israeli people for the democratic process for the election that they just engaged in with all the parties that engaged in that election. As you know now, the hard work of coalition building begins. Sometimes that takes a couple of weeks. And were going to give space to the formation of that coalition government and were not going to weigh in one way or another except to say that the United States and Israel have a historic and close relationship and that will continue going forward, Simas said.
This stunt was not only disgusting and disgraceful, but truly sickening to watch.
