“Congressman, I wanted to ask you a question-you had said on Fox News, the town hall, is it your impression that this government is ‘hell-bent in the direction of war with Iran,'” Rothman said.

“In the meantime, we had several attacks on merchant shipping, and an attack on an American drone and the management response seems to be relatively restrained. So, what is your view, why is it the management of the war is not Teran?

Joaquin quickly Rothman corrected and said he has not talked to Fox News about Iran. Rothman immediately, apologized and was embarrassed, but said, the mix needs to happen all the time.

“I apologize,” Rothman said. “This is a really terrible confusion on my part. But I’m not sure it is the first time that’s happened.”
