President Obama ridiculed CBS’ White House correspondent, Major Garrett, for asking a critical question during Tuesday’s press conference on the Iran nuclear deal.

GARRETT: Can you tell the country, sir, how you are content, with all the fanfare of this deal, to leave the conscience of this nation, the strength of this nation unaccounted for in relation to [the four Americans currently jailed in Iran]… 

OBAMA: I’ve got to give you credit for how you craft those questions. First of all, the notion that I am “content” [pause] as I “celebrate” with American citizens languishing in Iranian jail [pause]…

Major, that’s nonsense. And you should know better.
