Oh, this is priceless.
Treasury Secretary Jack Lew was heckled, jeered, and booed as he spoke Sunday to a conference organized by the Jerusalem Post.
Clearly, those in attendance understand the enormous peril posed by the Obama administration’s appeasement of Iran. And so, naturally, they reacted with anger as Lew artlessly read the administration’s propaganda off his teleprompter, no doubt assuming that a rote recitation of the White House nonsense on Iran would suffice.
It didn’t. These people know better.
Have a look. In this video, the anger heats up and hits crescendo during the final 30 seconds.
This next video has some further outtakes, showing the point at which audience members are simply having none of Lew’s nonsense.
Lew, an orthodox Jew and a Very Powerful Person, assumed Jewish audience members would just take him at his word that Obama stands with Israel, even though everything Obama does – from striking a deal that will allow Iran to have a nuclear weapons to dissing Netanyahu – suggests that he stands elsewhere.
Lew has no business being Treasury Secretary in the first place. He has limited experience outside of the government in any field related to the work of the Treasury. He is instead someone whom Obama could count on to spout the Party Line. Nice to see him get a comeuppance for trying to sell his fellow Jews a bill of goods.
Haven’t seen a senior government official so ignominiously shouted down since this.
