Larry Klayman, the right-wing lawyer who is currently suing President Obama for endangering his life as a white man, claimed on Friday that the $400 million sent to Iran earlier this year was motivated by the “half-Muslim” and “anti-Semitic” president’s “affinity for Iran,” claiming that the “traitor” Obama would have been impeached by now if he weren’t black.
Implying that a shipment of cash to Iran, which conservatives have falsely claimed was a ransom payment for U.S. hostages, was worse than the Reagan-era Iran-Contra scandal, Klayman said that the whole thing was driven by Obama’s father’s Muslim faith. (Obama’s father was actually, according to some reports, an atheist.)
“Look, he’s half-Muslim, he associates with his father, he wrote a book extolling the virtues of his father … so he feels some affinity for Iran, and he’s acted that way at the expense of Israel,” Klayman told Newsmax’s Steve Malzberg. “They’re now on the verge of nuclear weapons if they don’t already have it. And it’s totally consistent with his, frankly, anti-Semitic behavior and anti-Israeli behavior for the last seven years.”
Klayman added the president is also a “traitor” for having publicly criticized GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
“Now, suppose Donald Trump actually wins the election. What has he done? He’s undercut the United States,” he said. “This man, frankly, is a traitor to our country. If he had been anything other than African-American — and I don’t mean to cast aspersions on African-Americans, we have many colleagues that are that way and actually stand for really good values — but he would have been impeached and convicted by now. He’s a traitor to this country, Steve, and we’ve seen it over and over again and this is the latest example of it.”
