Well, it looks like President Joe Biden’s infamous temper — a likely byproduct of his cognitive decline as tantrums and irritability are both signs of dementia — has once again reared its ugly head, as new reports indicate he has referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as an “a**hole” on three separate occasions as tension between the two men continues to build, according to three individuals who are close to the situation revealed to NBC News.
Given how much the radical left loves to hate on Israel, I’m not shocked by the president’s response to Netanyahu. Kind of par for the course at this point. That is unacceptable by the way. Which you’d think the left would not have such a hard time with, considering they pride themselves on being “anti-hate” or something of that nature. However, their behavior has proven they are anything but that.

As the Israel-Hamas war rages on in the Middle East, Biden has reportedly been “venting his frustration” with aides and campaign officials over how Israel has carried out its offensive attacks in Gaza, five people directly familiar with the president’s comments told NBC News in a report Monday. The president has reportedly been pushing for a ceasefire in the Israel-Hamas war but Netanyahu has been giving Biden “hell,” the people familiar with the comments told NBC News.
“He just feels like this is enough,” one of the people said of the views expressed by Biden to NBC News. “It has to stop.”
Biden reportedly aired some of his frustrations at a fundraiser in January after thanking donors for helping him stand up to antisemitism and back Israel, a supporter who was present at the event told NBC News.
“He did say Bibi started off great, but ‘he’s been a pain in my a** lately’ or ‘he’s been killing me lately’ — one of those things,” the person who was present for Biden’s statements said in an interview with NBC News. “He goes, ‘But he’s doing a disservice … of late.’”
A spokesmen representing the National Security Council told the outlet a totally different story, saying the two men have a “respectful relationship.”
“The president has been clear where he disagrees with Prime Minister Netanyahu, but this is a decades-long relationship that is respectful in public and in private,” the spokesperson stated.
Yeah, if it comes down to choosing between the official narrative put out by a clear government “yes man,” and anonymous comments from a stranger who claims to be close to the president at the time his complaints were made, I’m going with the latter. Rarely ever can you trust the official story put out by the government. They will never give you the truth of what is happening behind the scenes. How could they? Doing so could create an international incident.
Biden and his administration have pledged their support for Israel since Hamas launched a terrorist attack on the country on Oct. 7. The president’s pro-Israel stance, however, has received push back from members of his campaign and those within his administration.
A coalition of State Department staffers signed on to a letter in November, demanding that the president call for a ceasefire in the conflict. Seventeen anonymous staffers on Biden’s reelection campaign petitioned to the president, reportedly arguing that Biden is complicit in genocide while urging the president to cut off unconditional military aid to Israel, according to an anonymous letter first obtained by Politico.
“It is not enough to merely be the alternative to Donald Trump. The campaign has to shift the feeling in the pits of voters’ stomachs, the same feeling that weighs on us every day as we fight for your reelection. The only way to do that is to call for a ceasefire,” the letter goes on to say.
Many Democrats have been less than happy with Biden’s pro-Israel stance and have not been shy about making that fact known. As a result, the president’s tone with the Jewish state seems to be shifting. He recently criticized Israel’s “conduct of the response in the Gaza Strip” as being “over the top.” Biden spoke with Bibi on Sunday where he said that Israel should avoid launching a ground assault in Rafah, a city located in southern Gaza, “without a credible and executable plan.”
“[The president’s] position hasn’t changed. I don’t think his messaging has changed. We don’t think his messaging has [changed]. He doesn’t believe his messaging has changed,” White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said to members of the press during a Friday press conference.
