Speaker Boehner loses cool, reportedly drops F-bomb on Harry Reid1/2/2013
In the Hollywood movie version of the fiscal cliff negotiations, one can imagine John Boehner (maybe played by Nicolas Cage) walking up to Harry Reid (James Cromwell, perhaps?) and shouting "Go f*ck yourself." Oh wait, that actually happened. According to a report from Politico, feelings between House Speaker Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Reid became so fractious in a White House lobby Friday that Boehner turned the air blue on two occasions. After Reid had earlier accused Boehner of running a "dictatorship," Boehner allegedly pointed his finger at Reid and said, "Go f*ck yourself." Reid reportedly replied, "What are you talking about?" — to which Boehner allegedly repeated, "Go f*ck yourself." [Source]
