Ultra-conservative lawyer Larry Klayman, who currently has a lawsuit against President Barack Obama for putting his life in danger because he is white, said on Friday that he gave Iran the $400 million because the “half-Muslim” president was driven by is “affinity for Iran” and that if he weren’t black, that “traitor” would have been impeached and arrested.
Klayman claims that the president’s father’s Muslim faith was a big factor in him sending Iran – what conservatives claimed to be – a ransom payment for the release of U.S. prisoners from Iran.
“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 also labeled Obama as a “traitor” because he publicly criticized the Republican 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.”
