Obama pointed this out Sunday night at the fundraiser for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee.
"That is the definition of chutzpah,” Obama said, adding that Issa's mailers were "shameless," according to Politico.
The President said that Issa's "primary contribution to the United States Congress has been to obstruct and to waste taxpayer dollar on trumped-up investigations that have led nowhere" and that the Republican congressman is "not somebody who’s serious about working on problems," according to Politico.
Obama also said that several Republicans openly criticize him and then attend the White House Christmas party.
"Some of them say, ‘I’m praying for you,’” he said, per Politico. “And I don’t question the sincerity that they are praying for me: ‘Please change this man from the socialist Muslim that he is.”
“I’m sure it’s more sincere than that,” he added.
