(CNN) - Jon Favreau, future White House director of speechwriting, has so far been at a loss for words over Facebook pictures of him at a recent party.
Pictures of Favreau, 27, at a recent party appeared on Facebook Friday. In one of the photos, Favreau, who served as President-elect Barack Obama’s chief speechwriter during the campaign season, was dancing with a life-sized cardboard cut-out of future secretary of state Hillary Clinton. In a second photo, a friend was offering the cutout a bottle of beer while Favreau stood beside the likeness with his hand on the cardboard New York senator’s chest.
The picture was reportedly up for a scant two hours or so before Favreau removed it, along with every other picture of himself beyond his profile photo - but there’s no getting the Facebook genie back in the bottle.
Favreau wasn’t talking to reporters about the incident, but transition officials said he had offered an apology to Clinton.
The Clinton camp reaction? "Sen. Clinton is pleased to learn of Jon's obvious interest in the State Department, and is currently reviewing his application," Clinton aide Philippe Reines told the Washington Post.
The sarcasm in the Clinton response to this behavior is quite appropriate. I predict his "application" will be treated as it should be; round file.
Just the kind of maturity the new White House will need..............
what an immature idiot.
LOL this is incredible.
"The Clinton camp reaction? "Sen. Clinton is pleased to learn of Jon's obvious interest in the State Department, and is currently reviewing his application," Clinton aide Philippe Reines told the Washington Post"
LOL!!! Ohh my Hillary, I can't believe you said that, LOL!!
Just take care Hillary...
Looks like the President-elect already has forgotten to keep someone on a leash Jon Favreau better learn to respect the new Secretary of State because she is the boss and canfired him for any reason whatsoever.
BTW, to Rush Limbaugh and all of you other Clinton bashers which includes you 2, Jack Cafferty who claim that Hillary won't be able to run in 2012 because she is now Secretary of State, Here's a little history lesson
Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, James Madison, James Buchanan and Martin Van Buren. What do these 5 Secretary of States have in common?
THEY EACH WENT ON TO BECOME PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. 2 OF THEM IN JUST 4 YEARS AFTER BEING SECRETARY OF STATE
Sorry to ruin a temporary celebration of what you thought was the permanent end to Hillary's quest for the Presidency
why don't of you mosquitos crawl back down from the hole you crawled up from. hmm?
Clinton/Whomever '12 and '16!
Good work Favreau. Sounds like you sure learned all about "turning the page on the divisive politics of the past" and "change we can believe in" and all those other great slogans you dreamed up.
Can you spell s-e-x-i-s-m?
Good for Senator Clinton's response ... humor and understanding go a long way!!
Jeeze, how is this even an issue? I don't see anything wrong with what he did. Are we North Korea where if you deface an image of the mighty leader you get thrown in jail or something?
Big whooping deal.
I just lost my job and THIS is what the news finds important.
ps: Are you the change we've been waiting for?
27 what wrong with him partying. my goodness.
thats what happens when you have an american idol as president
What an idiot. Great pick, Obama, great pick!
I'm sure his application is being seriously considered by the future boss lady herself.
Look carefully....he's got his hand in her armpit !!!
Why does the entire nation need to know about this? This just looks like a party where people were having fun. I don't see anything offensive necessarily happening in his picture.
oh gosh.....he's gonna be in the white house?
And NOW we can see why the Obama team has been so ruthless and meticulous in combing through the skeletons in each of its applicants' closets. Maybe Favreau is a great speechwriter, but this suggests a lapse in judgment that simply can not be tolerated given the intense scrutiny given to every presidential administration by both the public and political opponents.
Stupidity knows all political parties too well and Jon Favreau is very young. Maybe he'll survive this and maybe he won't. The political graveyards are full of indespensible men.
poor judgement and stupidity...he's not equipped to be part of this administration..he needs to go...and right away. no excuses.
What a moron thing to do...and even more moronic to put it on facebook. To find out that the person responsible for Obama's wonderfully amazing speeches is really just a sophomoric moron is disappointing.
Harmless. Actually quite funny. Whoever put up the picture of him is the idiot, and should have known it would get sent all over the internet like this.
