The Pope is visiting Washington, D.C., and President Obama takes him out for an afternoon on the Potomac, cruising on the Presidential yacht, the Sequoia.
They’re admiring the sights when, all of a sudden, the Pope’s hat (zucchetto) blows off his head and out into the water.
Secret Service guys start to launch a boat, but President Obama waves them off, saying, “Wait, wait. I’ll take care of this. Don’t worry.”
Obama then steps off the yacht onto the surface of the water and walks out to the Holy Father’s little hat, bends over, picks it up, and then walks back to the yacht and climbs aboard.
He hands the hat to the Pope amid stunned silence.
The next morning, Faux Noise and the GOP proclaim:
“Obama Can’t Swim!”
Obama Just Got 4 Americans Released From Iran, But Republicans Are Still Criticizing Him
Several Republican presidential candidates criticized the Obama administration’s decision to swap seven Iranian prisoners for The Washington Post’s reporter Jason Rezaian and three other Americans on Saturday.
Some of them, including Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), accused the administration of not pushing hard enough for the American prisoners’ release when the United States negotiated a deal with Iran last year. A group of 21 senators, led by Rubio and Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), sent a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry last year to demand the prisoners’ unconditional release. Kerry has said that he repeatedly pushed for the men’s release during negotiations.
On Saturday, Republicans said that Obama should not have given up Iranian prisoners because it made the United States look weak and that the U.S. prisoners should have been released without condition.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, who has also spoken critically of the Iran deal, similarly said that the United States should not have had to make any concessions to get the Americans released.
“We shouldn’t have to swap prisoners, these folks were taken illegally in violation of international law and they should have been released without condition,” Christie told WHOTV in Iowa. “But you know, the Iranians have treated this president with disrespect for years and he continues to take it. I would not take it as president.” *** from huffpo
