Another Missed Opportunity

On Stephen Colbert's first Late Show, Jeb Bush said this of the Iran deal:
"I think President Obama's being naive to trust the Ayatollahs."
To which a follow up question could have been:
"But this isn't just an agreement between the United States and Iran. It's an agreement between Iran and the United States, the UK, France, Germany, Russia, and China. Are you calling the Prime Minister of Britain, the Presidents of France, Germany, Russia and China, are you calling all of these people naive?"
Would Jeb! really want to go on the record as calling them all naive?  But if not, how was he going to justify singling out Obama as naive?   He would clearly be exposed as the hack that he is.

Darn it, Stephen, you missed a great opportunity there!  (I realize you were following a script, but you could have veered from it for a moment to ask this question.)

You may think a member of the main stream press could pick up on Jeb!'s foolish statement and ask the question I'm suggesting?  Hah!  I'm not holding my breath.
