President Barack Obama stepped to the podium in the Brady Briefing Room on Friday to discuss the impending government shutdown. Before he got to that, Obama announced he had just hung up with Iran President Hassan Rouhani, the first such communication with the leader of Iran since 1979.
Of course, if you follow @HassanRouhani on Twitter, you would have already known this call took place. Rouhani scooped Obama, tweeting, “Phone conversation between @HassanRouhani and @BarackObama.”
Remember that time President Obama signed “thank you” to a deaf supporter in Maryland? The two met up again today.
