Republican Senator Tom Cotton Warns America: Iran Now Controls Tehran… Capital Of Iran (VIDEO)

Man this guy gets stupider and stupider every day. 

Tom Cotton has been a United States Senator for just two months and he already went from conservative shooting star with sights set on the White House to absolute embarrassment not just to the GOP, but to America’s image as a whole. You’ve got to admit, even for a politician, that kind of flame-out is pretty spectacular.

Fresh off his error-prone letter to Iran, Cotton sat down with Face the Nation’s Bob Schieffer to defend his actions and managed to make more errors. Unlike many of his colleagues, Cotton, who was the principal author of the letter, claims he feels no remorse for signing it. In his interview, Cotton tries to maintain that he was simply pointing out that he and his party could easily kill any deal Iran makes with the Obama administration, and that he meant no harm by it.

“It was so important we communicated this message straight to Iran,” Cotton said Sunday on CBS News’Face the Nation, adding that he had “no regrets at all” for his communications with Tehran.

The Arkansas senator, who now serves on the Foreign Relations Committee, stood behind the warnings in the letter, signed by 46 other Republican legislators.

“It’s a simple fact of our constitution that if Congress does not approve that deal, then it may not last,” Cotton stated. He further asked for the executive branch to “call [Iran’s] bluff” in the negotiations. [source]

Given the understandably icy reception the letter has received from the American people, it remains to be seen if doubling down on its intent will do wonders for Cotton’s popularity. However, it’s the comments Cotton made near the end of his interview that will likely raise the most eyebrows.

That was my first thought. Of course a country would control its capital. Are we supposed to be surprised that an idiotic politician would make such a stupid statement?
