U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.) owes President Obama an apology, according to one Illinois congresswoman.
After the Iran nuclear agreement was signed, Kirk told a Boston radio station that Obama "wants to get nukes to Iran," and compared the deal to appeasement of Adolf Hitler before World War II. While Kirk later said he "got carried away," U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Evanston) says he needs to make a more formal apology.

"The very idea that this president, who, for years now, has committed to never seeing Iran with a nuclear weapon, that really it was his plan to make sure he delivers them couldn't be further from the truth and is just a terrible thing for the Senator...and such an irresponsible for him to say," Schakowsky said.
When told about Kirk's "carried away" comment, Schakowsky replied "that's his excuse?"
U.S. Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Chicago) then quipped "he gets carried away a lot."
