‘Incredibly childish’ Obama White House plotting ways to dis Netanyahu visit

[sharenow]

As if U.S.-Israeli relations weren’t strained enough, reports have surfaced that the Obama administration may be taking steps to subvert Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s scheduled visit next month to address Congress.

This prompted TribLive political reporter Salena Zito to respond:

The president has already indicated he won’t meet with the Israeli leader when he’s in Washington. From that, Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State John Kerry and Democratic members of Congress — including the Congressional Black Caucus — dutifully took their cue and announced they won’t attend Netanyahu’s address.

Apparently, that’s not enough of a snub for a famously vindictive White House.

The Associated Press reported that the administration is considering options short of the president delivering a speech to Congress rebutting the prime minister’s remarks. The AP story said:

Among them: a presidential interview with a prominent journalist known for coverage of the rift between Obama and Netanyahu, multiple Sunday show television appearances by senior national security aides and a pointed snub of America’s leading pro-Israel lobby, which is holding its annual meeting while Netanyahu is in Washington, according to the officials.

And that’s just what’s under consideration. The administration is already making sure that Obama, Biden and Kerry aren’t the only senior officials notably absent. The AP reported:

The White House is now doubling down on a cold-shoulder strategy, including dispatching Cabinet members out of the country and sending a lower-ranking official than normal to represent the administration at the annual policy conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, the officials said.

Folks on Twitter thought the whole affair had the ring of grade school playground antics:

One Twitter user hilariously suggested that the White House take its adolescent behavior to its next logical step:

I always thought throwing cherry bombs into the boys’ bathroom toilets was a great plan — when I was 8 years old.
