Rahm Emanuel, current mayor of Chicago and former chief of staff to President Barack Obama, is notorious for his foul mouth and quick temper.

Mary Ann Ahern, a reporter with NBC Chicago, pressed Emanuel about where his children would attend school in Chicago, which Emanuel was not too pleased to answer.

“My children are not in a public position. I am,” he said. “My children are not an instrument of me being mayor. My children are my children, and that may be news to you, and that may be new to you, Mary Ann, but you have to understand that I’m making this decision as a father.”

Then, he stood, pulled off his microphone and ended the interview.

According to Mediaite, when Ahern later tried to contact him to clear the air, he responded, “You are wrong and a bully. I care deeply for my family. I don’t care about you.”
