According to Politico, things became very heated when Speaker of the House John Boehner saw Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the lobby of the White House, just steps from the Oval Office, last Friday amid the negotiations to avoid the “fiscal cliff.”
“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.
Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”
Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”
