Video: Obama Rips Question on Hostages in Iran


OBAMACBS News’s Major Garrett asked President Obama at a press conference Wednesday if he was “content” with four Americans held in Iranian jails while his administration celebrated the nuclear deal.

“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?” Garrett asked.

“That’s nonsense and you should know better,” Obama bit back. “Nobody’s ‘content’ and our diplomats and our teams are working diligently to try to get them out.”

Garrett later brushed off the scolding on CBS’s news streaming network, saying, “Clearly, it struck a nerve. That was my intention…Was it provocative? Yes. Was it intended to be as such? Absolutely.”

The Americans came up during negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program. “We believe very strongly that this is an opportunity for Iran to let teh Americans come home,” an administration official said.



  1. Wow, it looks like the reporter really got under Barry’s skin. Barry is so arrogant, he doesn’t know how to respond when he is challenged. Btw, Hillary is the same way. She is being totally protected now. Just wait for her debates against the Republicans and the true Hillary will come out. It wont be pretty.

  2. what our president doesn’t realize is that getting those 4 Americans out of Iran would do much more for his legacy than this ludicrous “deal” he made with them.
