Today the President of the United States officially moved into delusional territory. From Fox News:
President Barack Obama on Friday compared tensions between the U.S. and Israel over the Iranian nuclear deal to a family feud and said he expects improvements in ties between the longtime allies to come quickly after the accord is implemented.
“Like all families, sometimes there are going to be disagreements,” Obama said in a webcast with Jewish Americans. “And sometimes people get angrier about disagreements in families than with folks that aren’t family.”
Got that? Israel’s leaders are motivated by anger. Not existential fear. Not concerns about the prospects of a mushroom cloud over Tel Aviv. Anger. Resentment. If pressed, our President would probably have added that Mr. Netanyahu was mad at him personally.
Someone very wise said, “Our president is a 13-year-old girl.” Exactly. It’s always about him, never about anything or anyone else.
