An Iranian general used an appearance to heavily criticize US President Barack Obama. According to the general, Obama is a “low-IQ president” and that he “has become a joke among the Iranian nation.” The general did not hold any punches and said it at a time where many are questioning how seriously President Obama is taken by leaders around the world.
President Barack Obama is a “low-IQ US president,” whose threat to launch a military offensive should nuclear talks fail is an oft-cited punchline in the Islamic Republic, particularly among children, an Iranian general said on Tuesday.
Jazayeri called Obama’s statements regarding the deployment of US troops “completely inexpert remarks far from the reality, and these statements can be used as the joke of the year.”
The Iranian news agency Tuesday published a political cartoon mocking the US president, calling it: “All Options on Table.” This Time for Russia.” In a jab at US non-intervention in Ukraine, the cartoon portrays Obama peering forlornly into an empty paint can with the label “Red Line” while Russian President Vladimir Putin walks away saying, “I think you used it all on Syria.”
The Iranian general also issued a warning to Obama that should US forces make a move, “the region will be turned into a hell for them.”
