Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has said the White House is “afflicted by mental retardation” after the Trump administration imposed sanctions on the country’s supreme leader. In a live televised address, Mr Rouhani branded the sanctions against Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and other senior officials, including Iran’s foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, as “outrageous and idiotic”. "You sanction the foreign minister simultaneously with a request for talks," he said, adding: "The White House is afflicted by mental retardation and does not know what to do." https://www.independent.co.uk/news/...ani-tensions-middle-east-latest-a8973326.html Wow that is amazing.
