On Monday, President Trump hilariously retweeted a doctored image of Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer standing in front of an Iranian flag. Although it had me laughing out loud, the reaction of the liberal Media Cartel was completely different. They’re outraged.
The original tweet was posted by an anonymous user:

“Democrats 2020,” and then an image of Schumer and Pelosi in Iranian clothes and standing in front of an Iranian flag. It’s both hilarious and painful at the same time. Painful? Yes, because the idea behind it is entirely correct. Democrats have sided with the thugs in Tehran against their own democratically-elected president. It’s sickening.
In any case, Trump clearly thought the same thing, so he went and retweeted the image. White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham explained afterward that “the president is making clear that the Democrats have been parroting Iranian talking points, and almost taking the side of terrorists and those who were out to kill the Americans.”
“I think the president was making the point that the 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,” she rightfully concluded.
It’s difficult to argue with that, of course. This is exactly what’s going on.
Funny enough, however, the leftist Media Cartel and Democrats (but I repeat myself) have responded with great outrage to Trump’s retweet. Here’s a typical liberal reaction:
“This is form the President of the United States,” Joseph Ruisi writes. “How disgusting, and inappropriate for him to be in the Oval Office, not as a citizen but as the leader of the country! This shows that he is unfit, unqualified, and doesn’t deserve the privilege of being president!”
CBS News also covered the tweet by pointing out that it’s a “fake image” (really?! Wow, nobody understood that!) and trying to fan the flames by pretending it’s just horrible. Truly horrific. Very bad. Terrible. Oh yes, it’s very serious headline news. How can he DO this?
But wait a minute! Didn’t Democrats and their minions on social media accuse Trump for three years of being a Russian spook? Somehow, CBS News, liberal Twitter-users, and Democrats in Congress didn’t have a problem with that, though. Oh no, they actually amplified and repeated those attacks. But when Trump does something similar it suddenly proves he’s The Worst Person In The World?
Get over yourselves, libs. Nobody’s interested in your faux outrage.
