Krauthammer: White House reaction to Netanyahu victory ‘unseemly’

On Wednesday, Charles Krauthammer told viewers on “Special Report with Bret Baier” that the Obama administration’s reaction to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s election victory last night “has become unseemly.”

Citing “pettiness” and “petulance,” Krauthammer noted that a presidential spokesman had congratulated the Israeli people on holding an election without congratulating Netanyahu as the winner.

That, along with lack of a White House statement on the victory, has many analysts predicting that the relationship between President Obama and Netanyahu could get worse. Krauthammer added Obama’s distaste for Netanyahu has become obvious.

“Look, it’s clear that Obama loathes Netanyahu more than any other world leader,” he said, “meaning more than the Ayatollah in Iran or Putin in Russia. And he did everything he could to unseat him, but he failed.”
