Obama Scolds Brave Reporter

Publius · Jul. 15, 2015

During a Wednesday press conference, CBS News’ Major Garrett asked Barack Obama a pertinent question: Why are we pursuing a nuclear deal with the Iranians when they refuse to release American hostages? Barack Obama was none too pleased with the question and issued a scolding retort.

Garrett: “Can you tell the country, sir, why you are content with all the fanfare around this deal to leave the conscious of this nation, the strength of this nation, unaccounted for in relation to these four Americans?”

Obama: “I’ve got to give you credit, Major, for how you craft those questions. The notion that I am content, as I celebrate, with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails? Major, that’s nonsense. And you should know better.”

And Obama should know better than to make a deal with the devil.
