Senator Of Illinois Mark Kirk Calls Out President Obama Claiming
 "We Can't Have The President Acting Like The Drug Dealer In Chief"
BHR Hollywood Reports..........President Barack Obama is yet again the target of a racial attack, after a Republican senator gave him the moniker, "drug dealer in chief."

The comment was made by Sen. Mark Kirk of Illinois, who used the Obama administration's recent Iran payment scandal as a way to characterize him as a drug dealer---which quickly caused backlash from critics, who say it was tasteless and racist.

"We can't have the president of the United States acting like the drug dealer in chief," Kirk said, "giving clean packs of money to a … state sponsor of terror. Those 500-euro notes will pop up across the Middle East. … We're going to see problems in multiple (countries) because of that money given to them."

Kirk's comments, made to the editorial board of The State Journal-Register of Springfield on Tuesday, were first reported online on Saturday by the paper's political columnist, Bernard Schoenburg.

The senator has made national security issues paramount in his bid for a second term — a campaign complicated by a controversial GOP presidential nominee and Illinois' tradition of voting overwhelmingly Democratic in presidential years.

Kirk has unendorsed Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and has gone through a back-and-forth series of statements of whom he would write in for president, settling on former U.S. Army Gen. David Petraeus, though the vote would not be counted under Illinois election law.

Kirk was referencing the $400 million cash payment the government made to Iran in January, around the same time the country released Americans who had been held as prisoners.

Many Republicans slammed the Obama administration, accusing it of paying a ransom--which the government does not do in fear of encouraging an onslaught of blackmail by terrorists.

Kirk, who is up for reelection this upcoming election season, took over the Senate seat that was once occupied by Obama in 2009, after he was elected president.

This isn't the first time Kirk has found himself in a conundrum over racially-insensitive statements he made. Last year, he drew criticism for suggesting that Black neighborhoods are "one(s) we drive faster through."
