Hurry, lock up your wardrobes, chastity belts included! Donald Trump says that that’s where the terrorists are hiding — or, something. Former Army Staff Sgt. David Bellavia became the first living recipient of the Medal of Honor, Tuesday, for his distinguished service in Iraq. Bellavia cleared out a house of insurgents in the Second Battle of Fallujah. Trump said this. RawStory:
“Then a third assailant burst out of a wardrobe — wearing a wardrobe,” Trump said.
Well, that could be interpreted as the assailant was wearing clothes, or that he was wearing a wardrobe piece of furniture on his back, as a sort of shell device, or possibly both.
Who knows? In any event, the President of Iran, Hassan Rhouani, has nothing good to say about Trump.
“The White House actions mean it is mentally retarded,” Rouhani said in a scathing televised address. “Tehran’s strategic patience does not mean we have fear.”
The Islamic Republic responded to President Trump’s decision to impose tough new sanctions on Tehran in the wake of Iran’s downing of a US drone by declaring a “permanent closure” of a path of diplomacy between the two countries.
Trump signed an executive order Monday to levy sanctions against Khamenei and other top Iranian officials — a move that Rouhani, who runs Iran’s day-to-day affairs with his cabinet, said was doomed to “certain failure.”
“You call for negotiations. If you are telling the truth, why are you simultaneously seeking to sanction our foreign minister?” Rouhani said, referring to remarks by US officials suggesting plans to sanction Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, according to the Washington Post.
Just another bumbling day for Trump, another laugh-fest for the world, who used to see the United States as many things, but non stop joke-a-thon wasn’t one of them.
