The National Rifle Association wants the government of Iran to take heed: The United States of America is much crazier than President Barack Obama is letting on. In a new video message that’s addressed to the “ayatollahs of Iran and every terrorist you enable,” an NRA supporter warns Iran that the real America is nothing like “our fresh-faced flower child president and his weak-kneed, Ivy League friends.”
So what is real America, you ask? It turns out that they’re the people the Iranians haven’t met yet.
“You haven’t met the heartland, or the people who will defend this nation with their bloody, calloused, bare hands, if that’s what it takes,” the video informs us. “You haven’t met the steelworkers and the hard-rock miners, or the swamp folks in Cajun country who can wrestle a full-grown gator out of the water. You haven’t met the farmers, the cowboys, the loggers and the truck drivers. You don’t know the mountain men who live off the land, or the brave cops who fight the good fight in the urban war zones.”
So there you have it: America is either people who do physical labor out in the countryside or police officers who keep a lid on troublesome city folk.
“No, you’ve never met America,” the video concludes. “And you oughta pray you never do.”
It goes without saying that a lot of Americans probably feel the same way.

Trump snubs Pelosi for signing ceremony of trade deal she helped him pass
On Tuesday, CNN's Haley Byrd reported that President Donald Trump is not inviting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to the signing of the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), the president's signature trade agreement that updates and modernizes the earlier NAFTA deal.
Major Democratic committee chairs who were instrumental in shaping the final resolution, including Ways and Means Chairman Richard Neal (D-MA) were reportedly also not invited to the signing.
Democratic votes were critical to the ultimate passage of USMCA, and also played a role in influencing the final, bipartisan details of the agreement.
George Conway lists all of Trump’s most hilarious geographic blunders after the president whines about being mocked
President Donald Trump's circle is up in arms over a late-night CNN segment on Monday in which analysts joked that Trump — and his fanbase — are probably not smart enough to locate Ukraine on a map.
But on Tuesday, conservative lawyer and Trump critic George Conway pointed out that the president has indeed never shown any aptitude for geography — and listed off some of his most well-known and mocked blunders:
A thread for those who think @realDonaldTrump could find Ukraine on a marked map:
Trump’s lawyers push back as Bolton’s explosive new allegations rattle Senate Republicans
Donald Trump's lawyers, eager to attain his swift acquittal, pushed back forcefully Monday against explosive new allegations from former national security advisor John Bolton, insisting the US president's dealings regarding Ukraine were not impeachable.
The defense also injected Joe Biden and his family directly into the argument for why the president should not be ousted.
At only the third impeachment trial in US history, they stressed that Trump's requests to Ukraine to investigate his potential Democratic White House challenger were motivated by concerns about corruption.
Republicans faced fresh pressure to subpoena Bolton as a firsthand witness at Trump's Senate impeachment trial following new revelations, which could amount to damning evidence about the president's actions.
