It’s President Obama‘s last term in office and he has what he himself jokingly called a fuck-it list. At a fundraiser in Nevada Monday night, where Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was in attendance, the president praised Reid and joked about what their plans are for the future.
He said, “We were doing a little reminiscing and then figuring out how we’re going to deal with the crazies in terms of managing some problems. And then we talked about riding off into the sunset together.”
Among all the reports about Obama’s comments, it’s not clear exactly which “crazies” the president was referring too, but some reports speculated that it was a reference to opponents of the Iran nuclear deal (which would include a high-ranking Senate Democrat).
A White House Deputy Press Secretary provided this comment today:
White House's @Schultz44 on Obama calling some political opponents "crazies" — "he may have been a little glib in his language"
