GOP Senator Calls Reid ‘An Absolute A**hole’

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) laid into Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D) while speaking at a fundraiser Monday in New York, calling him an “absolute a–hole,” according to the New York Daily News.

“There’s no comity with Harry Reid. I think he’s an absolute a–hole,” Coburn said. He was reportedly asked about the state of civility in the Senate.

Tom Coburn Calls Harry Reid An Absolute A**hole: Report

Sen. Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) referred to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid as an “absolute a–hole,” according to a report. (AP)

A source who was at the fundraiser confirmed Coburn’s remark to TheBlaze.

Coburn named other Democratic senators that he has good relationships with, including Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.). Coburn has expressed a level of contempt for Reid in the past.

“If you want to ask why the Senate isn’t working, there’s one reason; it’s called Harry Reid,” Coburn said in 2012. “Incompetent and incapable of carrying on the leadership in the Senate.” He later issued an apology for his choice of words.

For his part, Reid is notorious for speaking bluntly. On more than one occasion he has remarked on his disdain for overweight people. He has also complained about “smelly” tourists in Washington, D.C., and reportedly told a TV news technician that his breath smelled.

In other news, the Senator stated that he meant to say Reid was "vapid as a donut hole."

I would have added at least one adjective beginning with the latter F. But he was being nice.

Regardless of what they think of each other - talk like this is not helpful.
It is comments like this from all sides that helps Congress have such a high approval rating.

I agree.
And think that all this negative name calling contributes.

Yes, but it's so telling that the dems name call a LOT and seem to get away with it.
