Oklahoma Republican Sen. Tom Coburn called Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid an “asshole” on Monday, speaking at a gala in New York.

The New York Daily News first reported the comments, which Coburn made at a gala for the New York Young Republican Club.

“I have great relationships with [New York Democratic Sen.] Chuck Schumer,” Coburn reportedly said. “I don’t say that in Oklahoma.”

But, he said, the Majority Leader was another story.

“There’s no comity with Harry Reid. I think he’s an absolute asshole,” Coburn said.
