Obama Infuriated When Reporter Asks Him About Hostages in Iran

President Obama got upset at Wednesday’s press conference about the nuclear deal with Iran. Major Garrett of CBS News asked Obama a challenging question that many Americans want answered. He asked how the Administration could strike a deal with Iran without any mention of the four Americans being held hostage there.

“Thank you, Mr. President. As you well know, there are four Americans in Iran, three held on trumped-up charges according to your administration and one whereabouts unknown. Can you tell the country, sir, why you are content with all the fanfare around this deal to leave the conscience of this nation, the strength of this nation unaccounted for in relation to these four Americans?”

President Obama didn’t take kindly to being asked a substantial question from a member of the press. Unlike the constant barrage of challenging questions President George W. Bush received, Obama is not accustomed to getting push back from the mainstream media. Obama directed a harsh reply to Garrett accompanied with a glare.

“I’ve got to give you credit for how you craft those questions,” Obama said, pausing at one point to glare at Garrett before continuing. “The notion that I’m content as I celebrate with American citizens languishing in Iranian jails, Major, that’s—that’s nonsense, and you should know better.”

Why do you believe the Administration penned a nuclear deal with a country that is holding four Americans hostage? Do you have faith that members of the media will continue challenging the President on this topic? Please comment below.
