Morgan Freeman and Jack Black: Stop Congress from killing the Iran deal or we’ll be ‘super dead’
Saying they don’t want to be “totally fried by a major nuclear bomb dead,” actors Morgan Freeman, Jack Black and Natasha Lyonne joined up with Queen Noor of Jordan and former Ambassador Thomas Pickering to encourage U.S. citizens to call their congressmen and encourage the to pass President Obama’s nuclear deal with Iran.
In a video created by Global Zero — an international group dedicated to “elimination of all nuclear weapons” — the actors and diplomats explain that the deal is an excellent step in the direction of keeping the U.S. out of another war in the Middle East.
“I’d love to see my grandkids smile,” Freeman explains as fellow actor Farshad Farahat continues, “But if Congress sabotages the nuclear deal with Iran…” before turning it over to Lyonne who adds, “we could be denied the very moment that makes our lives worth living. Why?”
Queen Noor pops in to add “we’re not actually worried about Iran dropping a nuclear weapon on the United States,” before Pickering points out that, should Congress sabotage the deal, “there would be nothing stopping Iran from getting the bomb.”
Viewers are later encouraged to call their representatives.
