CHICAGO (AP) — U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin has removed a Facebook post that erroneously claimed a GOP leader had told the president, “I can’t even stand to look at you.”

Durbin said Monday he’s satisfied that that people now know he’s not to blame for the mistake.

The decision resolves a point of tension between the White House and one of President Barack Obama’s most loyal defenders. The White House acknowledges the error stemmed from a “miscommunication.”

Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, was not at the meeting where the statement in question would have been made. He says his source was a White House staffer who briefed him.

The post drew rebukes from Republicans who said no such statement was made.

    So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. I get drunk every night and jerk off on my towel in the bathroom.
