House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) had some foul language for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) last week as vitriol erupted over the looming fiscal cliff.
According to Politico and CNN, Boehner confronted Reid in the White House lobby last Friday and advised him to “go fuck yourself.” Boehner was apparently upset that Reid had accused him of maintaining a “dictatorship” in the House of Representatives.
“The Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was sitting on a couch next to Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell, and the House Speaker walked in and he said in a pretty angry way, ‘go blank yourself,’” CNN’s Dana Bash explained. “I’ll just tell you that the ‘blank’ starts with an ‘F.’”
“The Democrat who was there insists to me that Reid just laughed it off and he didn’t take it seriously. A Republican who was there tells me that’s not what happened, and that in his words, the exchange continued and it didn’t get any better for Reid.”
