WaPo Reporter Convicted in Iran; Deranged Obama Babbles About ‘Climate Change’ and Kanye West

Good thing we have a president focused on the important issues while the Iranians shit all over us. We give them nukes, $150 billion and they laugh at us.

The guilty verdict announced by Iran in the trial of The Washington Post’s Jason Rezaian represents an outrageous injustice.

Iran has behaved unconscionably throughout this case, but never more so than with this indefensible decision by a Revolutionary Court to convict an innocent journalist of serious crimes after a proceeding that unfolded in secret, with no evidence whatsoever of any wrongdoing. For now, no sentence has been announced.

We are working with Jason’s family and Iranian counsel to pursue an immediate appeal, and we expect Jason’s lawyer, Leila Ahsan, also to petition for Jason to be released on bail pending a final resolution of the case.

The contemptible end to this ‘judicial process’ leaves Iran’s senior leaders with an obligation to right this grievous wrong. Jason is a victim — arrested without cause, held for months in isolation, without access to a lawyer, subjected to physical mistreatment and psychological abuse, and now convicted without basis. He has spent nearly 15 months locked up in Iran’s notorious Evin Prison, more than three times as long than any other Western journalists.

Meanwhile, as the Iranians spit on us and Russia romps around the Middle East with impunity, Preezy Climate Change is focused on the important issues of the day.

This wouldn’t even be funny if he were a comedian.

But hey, he can call people deniers, so he’s got that going for him.

In other embarrassments, President Kardashian had a busy fundraising weekend and also spent time with his good pal, America-hating Kanye West.

Speaking Saturday at a Democratic fundraising event in San Francisco where West was performing, Obama veered away from his prepared remarks to float the idea that the hip-hop star — who recently expressed presidential aspirations — might be interested in the gavel.

“You may have heard that Kanye is thinking about running [for] Speaker of the House,” Obama quipped. “It couldn’t get any stranger.”

The only thing stranger would be having a president babbling about “climate change” while the world is burning.

    The Washington Post will abandon one of its own rather than be critical of Obama. The irony of WaPo playing, ‘The Emperor has no Clothes” ,narrative for the past seven years with Obama ,has come back to bite them in the collective ass.
