Hossein Ghazizadeh, Health Minister
[The footage juxtaposes two remarks of Hossein Ghazizadeh, Health Minister – one in which he praises the Iranian people for their intelligence, and the other in which he is dismissive of people and keeps telling them it is what it is!]
Hossein Ghazizadeh (Health Minister): Iranian fellow citizens, I do ask you and I hope that we will all go to the ballot box. It is the people who can choose the best. We must respect people’s intelligence and judgment. And whatever they choose, we must accept it too – no matter where we are or in what positions we are.
Hossein Ghazizadeh (Health Minister): It is what it is! What can we do? This is our management! You voted and choose the president and the MPs. And they chose the ministers, and the ministers chose the managers and governors. It is what it is. In my opinion, we should stop hurting each other mentally. It is what it is now!
