Trump retweets image of Pelosi, Schumer in Muslim garb next to Iranian flag

Ronn Blitzer
3-4 minutes

President Trump retweeted
a photoshopped image depicting House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate
Minority Leader Chuck Schumer in Muslim headwear with a backdrop of the
Iranian flag, in the midst of a Monday morning Twitter spree in which he
shared a number of posts accusing Democratic leadership of supporting
the Iranian government.

The
president's political opponents have blasted him for ordering the drone
strike against Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani, who has been linked to
numerous attacks on American forces and more. Meanwhile, they largely
have remained silent as
the Iranian people have staged massive protests against their leaders,
in the wake of the government shooting down a passenger plane and
initially denying it.

UK AMBASSADOR TO UN ECHOES TRUMP'S WARNING TO IRAN: 'EVERYONE IS WATCHING'

"The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah's rescue," said the original tweet from user @D0wn_Under.

Trump
later summed up his views on the matter, stating, "The Democrats and
the Fake News are trying to make terrorist Soleimani into a wonderful
guy, only because I did what should have been done for 20 years."

Other Republicans, though, have faced a stiff backlash for going too far in their condemnation of Democrats' comments on Iran.

House
Judiciary Committee ranking member Rep. Doug Collins, R-Ga., apologized
for asserting that Democrats are "in love with terrorists," following
the introduction of a War Powers Resolution in the House meant to curb
Trump's ability to take military action.

Schumer later responded with a tweet of his own, directed both at Trump and the GOP as a whole.

"President
Trump: How low can you go? Republicans: How long can you cover up for
and defend the president's actions?" Schumer asked.

White
House press secretary Stephanie Grisham addressed the matter on Fox
News on Monday afternoon, after being shown some of the backlash,
specifically a tweet from Libyan-American writer and activist Hend Amry.

"Why
the actual hell is the president of the United States using the way I
and millions of other Americans dress and the religious beliefs that We
hold as a slur," Amry asked. "This absolutely must be condemned by
congressional lawmakers on both sides of the aisle."

Grisham focused less on the image that Trump tweeted and more on the sentiment behind it.

"I
think the president is making clear that the Democrats are — have been
parroting Iranian talking points and almost taking the side of
terrorists and those who were out to kill the Americans," she said. "I
think the president was making the point that Democrats seem to hate him
so much that they’re willing to be on the side of countries and
leadership of countries who want to kill Americans."




LIBERTY HAS NO EXPIRATION DATE

Democrats wouldn't buy a clue if it was government subsidized.
