Michele Bachmann attended the White House Christmas party and decided that was the appropriate time, as she’s leaving office, to tell the president that he should bomb Iran. And she was apparently surprised and put off when he didn’t take her seriously.
Bachmann, whose last day in office is today, said the White House Christmas party was her last chance for a conversation with Barack Obama in such a capacity. That’s why Bachmann said she “decided to have a substantive conversation.”
“I asked the president to be very serious and to think about this because if Iran obtains a nuclear weapon on his watch, the course of history will change,” she said, describing Obama as “fairly condescending” in his response.“He smiled and laughed and was fairly patronizing, and said, ‘Well, you know, it just isn’t that easy, Michele, but that’s OK,’ like I’m some little woman who doesn’t know what I’m talking about.”
But Michele, you actually don’t know what you’re talking about. Ever. You’re lucky he didn’t just laugh in your face and tell you not to let the door hit you in the ass as you leave Congress. You were condescended to because you deserve to be condescended to.
