    Can you call a woman A$$HOLE?
    I never ever used it for a woman before, but maybe now is an exception.
    Funny because if President Obama was weak, Netanyahu, his party and supporters (both in Israel and US, like the Republicans especially) would have very much like him.

    My guess is she received a lot of backlash from her racist post and she’s desperately trying to backpedal. I agree with Larry Schmitt, this is a fake apology.
