One slur that can be overlooked, another that can’t

So a member of Obama's administration bad mouthed the leader of Israel, our only ally in the middle east. Called him chicken shit or something like that. The media just skips over that word or uses symbols, so I’m actually not sure what he said. Anyway, he said Benjamin Netanyahu was a piece of poo and a coward. Obama has ignored the slur. It's a good thing that staffer didn't say, "Washington Redskins" or he might have been fired immediately for being so hateful.

“Certainly, that’s not the administration’s view, and we think such comments are inappropriate and counterproductive,” said National Security Council spokesman Alistair Baskey, according to The Hill. “Prime Minister Netanyahu and the president have a forged an effective partnership, and consult closely and frequently, including earlier this month when the president hosted the prime minister in the Oval Office.”
