JK y'all! Sheesh, can't you take a joke?

...Republican aides were taken aback by what they thought was a lighthearted attempt to signal to Iran and the public that Congress should have a role in the ongoing nuclear discussions. Two GOP aides separately described their letter as a “cheeky” reminder of the congressional branch’s prerogatives.

“The administration has no sense of humor when it comes to how weakly they have been handling these negotiations,” said a top GOP Senate aide.

Sounds like a barn door slamming shut too late.

Such overreach of power, just what they accuse Bamz of doing. Sorta like the pot calling the kettle uppity.

2. Well, that's one way to yank back a trial balloon...

3. Sabotaging international negotiations affecting national security is SO hilarious!

As they say in junior high, "It's so funny I forgot to laugh."

8. A threat to National Security.

I would not be surprised to learn that the NSA and the CIA had set them down and explained the seriousness of the matter.
