Rep. Trent Franks, one of the most ridiculous people in Congress, went on Fox News and hit the wingnut trifecta: Obama’s letting terrorists cross the border, won’t do anything about ISIS and Iran is going to give nuclear weapons to ISIS to attack the United States.
“This president has ignored the intent of enemies like ISIS to exploit our porous border and if they ever gained the capacity to hurt us, with Iran on the cusp of potentially gaining a nuclear weapons capability, we could see a situation where terrorists could gain access to nuclear weapons and the shadow of nuclear terrorism could fall across this world and if that happens this president will be remembered in history as the one who stood by with a golf club in his hand and let it happen,” he said.
And now, a word from reality: ISIS is Sunni; Iran is Shiite. ISIS is, in fact, a real threat to Iran and Iran knows it. Iran supports Assad against ISIS. These are “facts,” but I doubt Franks will recognize them. He never has before. The only thing they have to sell is fear itself.
