Best friend fallout: Erdogan “not talking” to Obama
The BMFs Barack Obama and Turkey’s Erdogan are having a bit of a tiff. Erdogan has said he’s stopped talking to Obama on the phone. He also claims to still be fast friends with Biden “I call him and he calls me.”
On the other side, Obama’s clique called his comments “offensive and wrong.” Erdogan hit back by saying the United States needed to engage in “self-criticism.”
What is this, junior high?
There can be no denying that Erdogan has fallen over the ledge into crazy-ville. The comments he has made about Israel go beyond being anti-Semitic but that clearly is not the problem because he was making crazy anti-Semitic comments about Israel and Jews when he and Obama became best buds. No, I think that it is just that Erdogan’s latest comments on Israel, Syria, and the U.S. make it so obvious that he’s gone over the ledge that Obama wants to make sure he isn’t pulled over the side with him.
