The erasure of Barack Obama continues—Iran deal edition

The erasure of Barack Obama continues—Iran deal edition

Well, it's finally happened.

A wretch of a man who ran for office specifically out of animus for Barack Obama is now undoing the major foreign policy achievement of the previous administration.

Let's be frank: Donald Trump knows nothing about Iran. He knows nothing about its history. He knows nothing about the threads binding it and the US together. All he knows is that the black President did something, so he will do the opposite.

It's so tiring. It's so tiring seeing this mental defective undo all the progress of the past eight years just to stick a middle finger to Pres. Obama. His regime has no original ideas; it merely exists to undo everything Pres. Obama has done. It's like the Groucho Marx song "I'm Against It," but without the humor, and with deadly consequences in the offing.

And make no mistake: the US isn't "withdrawing" from the agreement. It is violating a treaty it signed. No power now has any reason to trust any commitment the US makes, if the succeeding administration can scupper it. I'm sure Kim Jong-Un is looking with interest at the machinations in Washington today.

Thank you, Trump voters. Thank you, Stein voters. Thank you, voters who stayed home. This is all on you. And when those of us who voted for Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama pull this car out of the ditch, do us a favor: stay at home watching "The Bachelorette"; we don't need you screwing up things any further.
