John Podesta likes calling folks the d word
by Nathan'ette Burdine: October 22, 2016

Jake Tapper, host of CNN’s “The Lead,” tweeted about a question that has rattled the minds of man and woman kind for over a millennium.

And that question is, “Why is Jake Tapper such a dick.” The question came from none other than Hillary Clinton’s Campaign Chairman John Podesta.

Wikileaks dumped a pile of Hillary Clinton’s emails on the web. And in one of the emails, John Podesta told Jennifer Palmieri and Kristina Schake that “Jake Tapper such a dick?”

Apparently, “dick” is one of Podesta’s favorite adjectives. He also described former New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson as a “dick.”

And for those who may not remember, the Clintons are not that friendly with the former governor because of his decision to support then Senator Barack Obama over then Senator Hillary Clinton for president in 2008.

However, Richardson is not bothered by any of the obvious animosity the Clinton camp still has for him.

For his part, the former governor just brushed off the comment and said that he “strongly support Hillary Clinton for President.” Richardson even managed to get a little dig in at the Clintons.

The Washington Times quoted Richardson as saying, “I fully respect John and recognize the difficult job he has. I say this as someone who is neither seeking nor expecting any appointment or role in a Clinton White house.”
