Diplomatic tensions rose today after a Fox News camera caught President Barack Obama talking to one of his press aides and making some very undiplomatic comments about Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper after the two met briefly at a Washington international benefit event.
As Obama and Media Relations Director Clive Leonard walked away from reporters, the Fox newsfeed clearly picked up the conversation.
LEONARD: "The Prime Minister is requesting a 15-minute meeting Mr. President."
OBAMA: "What's with that guy?"
LEONARD: "Sir?" (coughs)
OBAMA: "He's shifty...he's never standing where his voice seems to be coming from."
OBAMA: "And he's a large lump isn't he? All pudge and hair."
