Did you hear the latest? President Joe Biden has supposedly been caught red-handed, slinging insults like a grade-school bully at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. According to three people in the know, Biden has called Netanyahu an “asshole” not once, not twice, but three times! Can you believe it?
THE TENSION IS-RAELhttps://t.co/GTFEA6Q46R

Apparently, Biden has been losing his cool amidst the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict, venting his frustrations to anyone who will listen. Those pesky aides and campaign officials have been on the receiving end of his grumbling about Israel’s offensive attacks in Gaza. He’s been pushing for a ceasefire, but Netanyahu, that rascally PM, has been giving him “hell.” Biden just can’t catch a break.
One supporter who attended a fundraiser in January spilled the beans, claiming that Biden expressed his annoyance with Netanyahu, saying he’s been a real “pain in his ass” lately. Ouch! But hey, Biden did give him a little credit, acknowledging that Bibi started off great. It’s a classic “love-hate” relationship, I tell ya.
Now, the White House is doing damage control, assuring us that Biden and Netanyahu have a “respectful relationship.” Really? I must have missed all those sweet exchanges of pleasantries. But hey, who am I to question the official line? Surely, there are no tensions here.
Of course, we can’t forget about the internal rebellion brewing within Biden’s own camp. State Department staffers and campaign members have been raising concerns about his pro-Israel stance. They’re demanding a ceasefire, accusing Biden of complicity in genocide, and even calling for an end to military aid. Can you believe the audacity?
To make matters worse, Biden’s tone towards Israel has started to shift. He recently criticized Israel’s “conduct of the response in the Gaza Strip” as “over the top.” But don’t worry, the White House was quick to clarify that he was only referring to military operations. Phew! I almost thought Biden was going soft on us.
But fear not, the president’s position hasn’t changed. At least that’s what White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre wants us to believe. She insists that Biden’s messaging remains consistent, and he still supports Israel, just with a little extra side of criticism.
In the end, it’s a classic liberal move. Biden talks tough but doesn’t really do much. He’s all bark and no bite. Meanwhile, Israel’s under attack, and it seems like our president is more interested in throwing insults than taking decisive action to protect our ally. We deserve better leadership than this.
