National Review Editor: Obama Hates Netanyahu Like He Hates Ted Cruz

National Review editor Rich Lowry said Sunday on "Meet the Press" that President Barack Obama's feelings toward Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu go far beyond a little dislike.

Lowry told the panel that ever since Netanyahu gained a third consecutive victory in the Israeli elections, left-wing politicians and the White House are throwing a "temper tantrum."

"President Obama hates [Netanyahu] with a burning passion," Lowry said. "It's as if Ted Cruz were the leader of a major ally."

"I think it's a two-way street," host Chuck Todd chimed in.
