(Fox News) “President Obama owes Prime Minister Netanyahu an apology,” Greta Van Susteren said in her “Off the Record” remarks this evening.
The Atlantic reported that White House staffers called the Israeli prime minister a coward and “chickensh-t.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest did not apologize for the insult, instead saying that the remarks don’t reflect the views of the president.
“Actually though, we do know the president’s personal view of Prime Minister Netanyahu – he told us,” Van Susteren said.
She recalled the time when Obama got caught trash-talking Netanyahu with then-French President Nicolas Sarkozy, calling it shameful and an embarrassment to the nation.
“Leaders set the tone for their staff, maybe that’s why the staff felt so free to trash-talk our nation’s best friend. This is so wrong. Prime Minister Netanyahu deserves respect,” Van Susteren said. She then called on Obama to apologize, then find those staffers and get rid of them.
