‘Supreme irony’ at the Nat’l Security Council meeting

/ 12:14 AM August 06, 2016

DEFINE “supreme irony”: two former presidents who are the greatest threats to the country—one, a convicted plunderer caught on camera gambling in a casino, pardoned by the other president, herself under indictment for plunder, who admitted talking to an election commissioner during the counting of votes in an election, purportedly to make sure her votes were counted—attending a National Security Council meeting (to talk about the security of the country?), where another former president is present, rightly so, refusing to acknowledge the other.

What a farce.
