Donald Trump Admits That He Never Saw $400 Million Unloaded From Plane In Iran
The Obama administration secretly organized an airlift of $400 million worth of cash to Iran that coincided with the January release of four Americans detained in Tehran, according to U.S. and European officials and congressional staff briefed on the operation afterward.
Being the zealous opportunist that he is, Donald Trump used this report as a chance to cast aspersions on the President’s administration and, by proxy, Hillary Clinton.
Donald Trump bragged to a massive rally crowd Wednesday in Daytona Beach, Fla. about watching a “top secret” government video of Iranian officials unloading $400 million from an unmarked plane in a reported bombshell backdoor deal. Then on Thursday Trump was caught boasting about the video again at a town hall in Portland, Maine.
Stranger still: No one — including American intelligence officials — has any idea what he was talking about.
Trump, one of the two people who could be the next leader of the free world, couldn’t wait to tell his followers in Daytona Beach, Fla. about an apparently classified video he said he just watched.
“I don’t think you’ve heard this anywhere but here,” the bumbling businessman began. “Iran provided all of that footage, the tape, of taking that money off that airplane.”
Thing is, this “top secret” footage was just b-roll from a TV station of a random plane that wasn’t even IN Iran.
After playing himself royally, The Orange One had to hop his fool azz on Twitter and admit that he doesn’t know what the hell he’s talkin’ about.
We would say that this will teach Donald to be more careful with his words, but let’s be honest, this man can’t be taught anything. SMFH.
Don’t boo. Vote!
