In his address to the nation on Wednesday regarding Iran’s missile attack on U.S. bases in Iraq, President Trump made reference to the fact that the Obama administration handed over roughly $1.7 billion to Iran as a ransom for American hostages and said it helped Iran fund the attack. Well, that triggered the liberal media who sprinted to the former President’s defense. CBS White House correspondent Weijia Jiang actually suggested it was “unfounded” for Trump to make the connection. And NBC ran to Obama-era liar Susan Rice for backup.
Jiang began her CBS Evening News report by snapping at how Trump suggested the American people should be happy with how things had turned out. “But critics say there is no reason to celebrate, especially because tonight, U.S. intelligence agencies warn more threats may be looming,” she chided.
Later responding to a soundbite of Trump talking about the need for Iran to change its behavior, Jiang decried: “He blamed that behavior on the unfounded claim that the Obama-era nuclear agreement enabled Iran to build up its military arsenal.”
The assertion Trump’s claim was “unfounded” was laughable if the situation wasn’t so serious.
