Gene Sperling, You’re No Rahm Emanuel


Oh, Woodward, you big tease.

See, now this is a threat against a reporter:

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel allegedly grabbed a reporter by the arm in order to communicate “a threat of physical violence” in the course of an interview that went south during the presidential campaign.

“I’ve never experience anything like this in my career from an American public official,” Buzzfeed’s Michael Hastings, author of Panic 2012: The Sublime and Terrifying Inside Story of Barack Obama’s Final Campaign, said on Current TV. “He grabbed me by the arm and wouldn’t let go while his bodyguards approached me. And clearly trying to intimidate me with a threat of physical violence. It was abusive.” Hastings provided Current with audio of the conversation.

But you would never see someone like Rahm Emanuel, with such obvious rage and temper issues, such an uncontrolled bullying attitude, working in the Obama White House.

Wait a minute…
