Does this sound familiar to anyone else? As has been widely reported, President Obama and President Sarkozy of France had the following exchange regarding Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu without realizing they were still audible to reporters:
President Sarkozy: I cannot bear Netanyahu, he’s a liar
President Obama: You’re fed up with him, but I have to deal with him even more often than you!
I can just imagine the rest of the conversation, tactfully omitted by the french translators:
President Sarkozy: Oh, I know! You guys were, like, so tight, and then he totally went behind your back to UNESCO for Palestine.
President Obama: Yeah, and I happen to know that Netanyahu had de-friended Palestine on Facebook and was all, no way, Obama, you and me are BFFs. And now this?
President Sarkozy: I know, right? Cause he knows that you and me are full-on besties and always will be. I bet he even texts Ahmadinejad and just doesn’t want you to know.
President Obama: He’s all about being ‘the Peacemaker’, dude, he’s even posting status updates like “The Peacemaker does it again!” and “The Peacemaker at Euro-Disney.” I mean, seriously? Ain’t no peacemaker I know wears mouse ears.
President Sarkozy: Whatever! Everyone knows you’re the Peacemaker. You can whip out the Nobel sh*t on his *ss.
President Obama: You know, right? I already got a peace prize, f*cker! How do you like that, Benny?
I don’t know why they turned so foul at the end of it. Maybe the teacher caught them passing notes. I don’t know. Am I the only one who thought they sounded like high school students?
