Cleric: Iranian President Should Punch Obama in the Mouth

During a recent sermon in Tehran, an Iranian cleric criticized the United States and said that the Iranian president should “punch the American president in the mouth” if he “talks nonsense.”

The comments by Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami were made on April 25, and broadcast on Iran’s Channel 1. The Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) translated them and posted them on YouTube.
