I hope the dude has learned that there is no reasoning with the leaders of the Middle East. You can't deny that he's tried to reason with them, and even tried to kiss their asses. Hopefully he's learned that this is a fruitless effort.
If he takes it into account, I would assume it is taken into account behind the scenes. I don't see any reason to make a big public deal about what some nut in Iran said.
Yeah, I would deny he's tried to kiss anyone's ass. I hear about complaints of appeasement at the same time I hear complaints about drone strikes and military actions in these sovereign Muslim countries.
