Obama Administration Member Reportedly Called Female Reporter A “C*nt”


When Rush Limbaugh called Sandra Fluke a “slut” it turned into a major controversy. Now, in the wake of the controversy over high-profile reporters like Bob Woodward and Jonathan Alter claiming they were bullied and intimidated by the administration, comes a report that Obama administration officials used some very ugly language in talking to a female reporter:

Another D.C. veteran, who declined to be named, was told about another incident involving a colleague, where a member of Obama’s inner circle used very harsh words when speaking with her, according to the New York Post.

“I had a young reporter asking tough, important questions of an Obama Cabinet secretary,” said one D.C. veteran. “She was doing her job, and they were trying to bully her. In an e-mail, they called her the vilest names — b–ch, c–t, a–hole.”

When he complained, things didn’t get fixed. “They were hemming and hawing, saying, ‘We’ll look into it.’ Nothing happened,” he said.

That’s some ugly language to address a woman with for an administration that has made a lot of political hay out of the “war on women.”

    The only problem is when they declare war on liberal women. This one wouldn’t qualify. Look for Heidi to be as silent as she was about the insults to Kirsten Baesler. Conservative women and those who ask tough questions are traitors to the liberal cause and deserve no respect.

    It is immature at times, but I don’t see the problem with using these words to describe people. I use those words countless times everyday. My favorite political moment was when Dick Cheney told Pat Leahy to go F*** himself and also proudly defended it on a Sunday talk show.

    Therein lies the difference.
    Republicans see ALL women as c*nts.

      So it’s ok for the Obama administration to call a female reporter a c*nt, because according to you Republican think all women are c*nts?

      Really? That’s your argument?

        Allegedly called.

          Nice picture of your mother.

          Did she have any children that lived?

            Most unlikely…. YIP’s existence is an anomaly… but then science still debates on whether to classify a virus as life or not.

          • rangerrebew

            She did but she denies it as her child was born an ass hole and nothing else. How would you like to admit you carried an ass hole for nine months?

          • two_amber_lamps

            Wait a minute… are you saying YIP’s an a##hole or he was birthed via his mother’s a##hole?

            I’m going with the latter hypothesis….

          • rangerrebew

            I’ll accept your hypothesis!!

        • http://sayanything.flywheelsites.com Rob

          Yes, it’s a claim. He said, she said.

          It warrants more review. But I suspect your position is that it’s ok for a member of the Obama administration to call a female reporter a c*unt because, you know, they’re Democrats.

        • two_amber_lamps

          YIP…. quit being a c$nt.

      Since you are a card-carrying dick, I knew you wouldn’t have a problem with this.

      Of course we do, even our wives, mothers, sisters, grandmothers and aunts. Keep throwing out the stupidity there Woof, you make yourself look like a bigger idiot than we could ever manage.

    not surprising. they also relabeled Sexual Harassment in the White House by Clinton, (Bill) as “Just a private matter”

    Its starting to look like women are just considered as sex toys for the liberally enlightened.

  • factsarefacts

    Do as I say, not as I do.

    Of course when Rush said that, he didn’t just blurt it out like Schultz did to Laura Ingram or Bill Mahr did when he called Sarah Palin the vile name. When Rush did it, it was an attempt to mock absurdity by absurdity. But the shrill harpies never bothered to note that, all they wanted to do was vilify him because of who he was not because they cared about what he said or how he said it.

    The point here and the thing that the lefties want to distract from, is that the people who condemned Rush are the same people who are defending this behavior by the Obama Administration. The hypocrisy is so blatant and undeniable that the only thing leftists can do, other than admit the truth (horrors) is to lie and obfuscate.

    This is not about Democrats using profanity. It’s not about Republicans using profanity. It’s about the ineffectual, gutless and often deliberately biased media that treats one side differently than the other.

    Republican outbursts are front page stories that last for days in the news cycle.

    Obama’s “most transparent administration” BS is treated as just another routine event not worthy of an aggressive expose it deserves to be.

  • yy4u2

    It is too bad that there was mention of this in an email…and then, nothing. Until it’s produced, heresy. Even if it was true, this administration basically has a no stick surface because of non-caring voter base.

  • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

    Is Rob still trying to make a big deal about the love letter between Woodard and that other fella? And that somehow is supposed to reflect positively on Limbaugh who called a gal a slut on national radio?? Oh wait, there’s an unnamed official who may have called a reporter a cunt in private.

    Totally the same thing. *rolls eyes*

    Is that what the cons have been reduced to? Comical!

    • http://sayanything.flywheelsites.com Rob

      No, im not saying anything exonerates Limbaugh.

      Just pointing out what the administration is accused of.

      • Hannitized, Proofs obsession

        Why do you care what people call others in private emails? Do you think the government should be the language police?

        • Hal801

          Oh, that makes it fine. It was in an email. sarc. You are strange.

        • $16179444

          lol – you sure like to spin when backed into a corner little fella.

  • spud

    Rob where is this email. It is hard to comment on a he said she said deal. Is there an actual email or is this a bunch of hooey. It’s one thing to claim this but entirely different if there is no proof. If a government official did this there would be an actual email of it. I am still waiting on that Senator Menendez prostitution with minors proof also. Funny how Fox News has clammed up on that one when for weeks that is all they talked about. Just a little factual evidence please before putting up this crap would be nice. Which reporter was it and which government official in Obama White House.

    A third hand account from an anonymous source? Why should it be taken seriously?

  • yourmom

    lol. way to go obama.

  • Davo

    I wonder why this secondhand account of an anonymous DC veteran hearing from an unnamed colleague that an unnamed member of “Obama’s inner circle” wrote her a mean email isn’t getting more traction in the press.

    Clearly, liberal media bias is the answer. There’s practically no difference between this and the time Rush Limbaugh repeatedly called Sandra Fluke a slut on national radio!

  • camsaure

    Golly! Susan is strangley silent on this one.

    • $16179444

      probably doesn’t shock her after being called one daily.

  • camsaure

    Obuma must have mistaken her for Hidey Ho.

    ………… on CNN’s Reliable Sources, Milbank said, “The number of F-bombs being dropped by this White House, scholars are going to look in the national archives in 20 or 30 years and they’re going to be shocked by the language that was coming out of this place”

    …………as they were the amount of F-bombs that came out of the Clinton Regime
    The Left denegrates the office of POTUS as would any 3rd world bunch of Free stuff citizens.
