I think we just witnessed another trap for Trump and seemingly he has taken the bait.

The Iran payment. He is running with it. I look for it to come up in the debates. Today's announcement...optics aside...just convinces me more that Obama is the smartest President to come along in my lifetime.

It was supposed to be "coincidence" that hostages were released the same day that we released 400 million of their own money to Iran. Yeah...

But what a move by Obama either way. It's a pretty good damn deal when you can pay hostage-holders with their own money and get your hostages released. Plus save billions of our own money.

4. Erin Burnett does not have balls....

 

Her stupid show and panelists are running with the "This can't be a coincidence - Obama paid ransom to terrorists!" meme.

It was Iran's own money.

5. Remember

Remember when Trump was furious that Obama didn't include the hostages in the nuclear deal? Well, he did, only we payed them with their own money.

6. That's what I am talking about! This too would make a great ad. Trump complaining...hostages

 

Iran's own money. So what is the "bad deal" that Trump was talking about. When you don't know what you don't know it can bite you in your butt.

I notice most of the smart Republicans are not making too much ado about this deal. They know to bring attention to it would ultimately make Obama look good. Just wait until the hostages and their families start talking about it. Oh, wait...no one in the media is requesting interviews with them...funny how that works.

8. Kudos to CNN today...they actually had some foreign policy experts on

who said, the Hostage, Nuke Deal, and Frozen Asset teams were all different. And, that the money arrangement was because of the embargo - no US dollars could go to Iran.

Of course, no one probably saw that.

Because we are in a truth impaired world - it all sucks.

BUT -- love your thought that POTUS orchestrated !! He and others know Trump doesn't read or study information. It will be a great zinger for Hillary !
