GOP Lawmaker Lashes Out At Reporters After They Fact-Check His Fake Photo Of Obama With Iran’s Rouhani
Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) lost his tempter on Monday after a journalist pointed out that he was sharing a fake photograph of former President Barack Obama meeting with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
Gosar took to Twitter shortly after reporter Daniel Medina noted the fake photograph.
Gosar lashed out at Medina by saying that it didn’t matter if the photo was fake because Obama was too nice to Iran.
“To the dim-witted reporters like [Medina]: no one said this wasn’t photoshopped,” Gosar tweeted. “No one said the president of Iran was dead. No one said Obama met with Rouhani in person. The tweet says: ‘the world is a better place without either of them in power’.”
He then went on to trash Obama for his successful efforts to get Iran to sign an agreement that curtailed its production of nuclear weapons.
“The point remains to all but the dimmest: Obama coddled, appeased, nurtured and protected the worlds No. 1 sponsor of terror,” he concluded. “The world is better without Obama as president. The world will be better off without Rouhani.”
