President Barack Obama publicly scolded CBS News’ Major Garrett during a gathering of the press corps at the White House on Wednesday, chastising the reporter for asking if the president is “content” to celebrate the Iran nuclear deal while four American hostages remain in Iran.
“That’s nonsense. And you should know better,” Obama replied.
Obama answered questions about the Iran nuclear deal during the gathering, saying it’s “our best means of assuring that Iran does not get a nuclear weapon.”
Oh, the effrontery! Obama was graciously informing us of the Historic Agreement he personally forged with Iran, and some idiot reporter has to go and ruin the mood by asking impertinent questions about some stupid Americans who are currently guests of Iran’s government.
If you watch the video you can almost hear the shocked gasps of the White House Press Corpse. He was later denounced by the Bloviating Gasbags of CNN. Even though he is currently employed by CBS, Major Garrett used to work for Fox News, and you know what that means.
Curiously though, Obama never really answered the question. In fact, it was the shortest answer he gave during the entire presser.
