Iranian TV Host Mocks Obama Threat to Iran Sanctions Violators
Times of Israel – An Iranian TV host on Thursday derided President Barack Obama’s vow to come down like “a ton of bricks” on firms that violate sanctions against Iran, suggesting that the US president take just one brick and knock it against his own head.
Mocking Obama on a morning show on Tehran’s Channel 5, the host asked a colleague in the studio, “Is America like a bogeyman? We don’t want to portray it like that, but Mr. Obama himself is insisting on imposing such an image. We keep saying that we are okay with America and its people, and so on. We keep trying to mend the relations, and then along comes Obama and says something that ruins it all.”
