As Iranian protests have intensified, President Donald Trump has been increasingly vocal in support of them, even taking personal shots at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
On Saturday, he tweeted, “It’s a wonderful thing when university students in other countries protest bad leaders. This Rouhani guy’s obviously not a genius or even like very smart. Sad!”
Apparently not satisfied with this jab, an hour later, he tweeted again, “I bet his approval ratings aren’t great like mine. Oh, and I heard from one of his three wives that his nuclear button doesn’t even work!”
And ramping up the pressure he went on, “Hey Rouhani, yo momma so fat she’s like a cliff… Sheer….” However, some White House Watchers believe this tweet might have originated from Chief of Staff General Kelly, as it was quite clever.
Rouhani issued a reply tweet later that day. It read simply, “I know you are, but what am I?”
