Obama fails to mention sailors held by Iran in State of the Union: ‘No hostile intent’

Obama2016SOTUOn Tuesday, President Obama delivered his final State of the Union speech.  Noticeably absent from the speech was any mention of 10 sailors held hostage by Iran.

The reason, Jake Tapper said on Twitter, is because the Obama regime doesn’t see Iran’s actions as hostile.

Oh, well, if the Iranians assured us, that’s all we need, right?

Many weren’t impressed:



It’s beyond embarrassing.


That clears it up.


Good question.

Meanwhile, Obama mentioned non-existent global warming, er, “climate change,” no less than five times.
