President Trump has started to get repetitive in his tweet subjects, firing out another volley at Iran this morning after tweeting about them the previous two days as well.
Big protests in Iran. The people are finally getting wise as to how their money and wealth is being stolen and squandered on terrorism. Looks like they will not take it any longer. The USA is watching very closely for human rights violations!

What’s most ironic about this latest tweet is that you could switch the words “Iran” and “The USA” and it would be equally true, although our big protests aren’t quite as recent as theirs and not nearly enough people in America are getting wise to how their money and wealth is being stolen by corporate beneficiaries of the Republican tax regime and how our wildly inflated military budget and unending war in the Middle East and Afghanistan squander their tax dollars.
A few people did manage to discern the hypocrisy in Trump’s tweet, and their Twitter replies showed their commitment to free speech.
Protests are a wonderful expression of free speech. It would be nice if you respected that right in America!

He is NOT a friend to Iran or any foreign country. There’s a reason America is losing Allies and credibility. There’s one reason and one reason only Trump is acting so hypocritically on this subject. He wants something.

We know you don’t actually care about the Iranian people, you just want an excuse to invade a sovereign nation, all be it a tyrannical one. You dream of having the power and control that the ayatollahs have.

So the protests in Iran are ok, but our protests against you aren't?

Money and wealth is being stolen here by you and the crooked GOP. Spare me the human rights violations, you don’t give a flying F about humanity. Rolling back regulations, and everything you do is the opposite of compassion towards anyone who isn’t white or part of the 1% club.

How about the human rights violations you're imposing on millions of Americans? You're taking away life (millions uninsured under your watch). liberty (attempting to strip Americans of their 1st Amendment Constitutional rights) and the pursuit of happiness…

It’s so wonderful to see that the majority of replies to Trump’s latest tweet see clear through the hypocrisy and tell the President exactly how it really is. Blather on Don. We’ll counter your BS every step of the way.
