Social Media Is Clowning Donald Trump's All-Caps Tweet Threat He Sent To The Iranian President

Many are finding it ironic that The Donald is talking tough now after bending to Vladimir Putin last week.

Published July 23, 2018

During this week’s episode of Twitter fingers Donnie, President Trump though he’d look strong shooting off an all-caps tweet at Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

  1. Rouhlani criticized Trump and warned him not to "play with the lion's tail" and that "war with Iran is the mother of all wars." Instead of having a thick skin, The Donald, of course, fired back with a tweet warning Iran’s ruler not to threaten him again.

  2. "NEVER, EVER THREATEN THE UNITED STATES AGAIN OR YOU WILL SUFFER CONSEQUENCES THE LIKES OF WHICH FEW THROUGHOUT HISTORY HAVE EVER SUFFERED BEFORE."

    More broadly, Rouhlani actually didn’t make a real threat, but rather, provided the choices the United States had for a relationship with Iran. "America should know that peace with Iran is the mother of all peace, and war with Iran is the mother of all wars."

    Social media, as you might expect, had a field day.

  3. Some just straight made fun of the way 45 composed his tweet...
  4. others attacked the fact that his twitter fingers are for now, but what about last week when you didn't want smoke with Putin?
  5. There was also just general criticism...
  6. Luckily, Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs Committee tweeted clarification of the president's message, saying, "DON'T BE DISTRACTED BY ALL CAPS. WE'RE NOT ATTACKING IRAN."

    They also urged Trump to hold Russia responsible for interfering in the 2016 U.S. election.
