In a reversal, the former head speechwriter for President Barack Obama, who has compared Republicans to terrorists and “hardliners” in Iran, took to Twitter to decry “gross political shit.”
Jon Favreau’s newfound disdain for “gross political shit” began after he became upset on social media upon learning Sen. Tom Cotton (R., Ark.) called Obama’s national security team “chumps,” “yes men and fanboys.”
“You know, most of who’s left in the administration now are all these yes men and fanboys who were van drivers or press flacks for Barack Obama in Iowa and New Hampshire in 2008,” Cotton said. “As if any of them have ever seen anything more dangerous than a shoving match when they were playing beer pong in the back of a bar in Georgetown.”
Speaking of gross political shit, here’s Favreau in 2008 fondling a cardboard cutout of his party’s likely 2016 presidential nominee.
