There is nothing that makes me prouder to be an American than when the White House shows the maturity level of seventeen year old girls.
You may remember when Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to the UN, he used this graphic to illustrate why Iran getting nukes is a bad idea. Both for Israel and the USA.
The petulant children running the White House’s social media department, and their foreign policy…pretty much, the petulant children who are running the entire White House, came up with this graphic to “sell” their Iran deal.
I’ll be honest, from purely a social media stand point, it’s a great graphic. The White House knows the places from which their low-information voters draw their information. Places like Comedy Central, Facebook memes, and the misleading headlines of click bait websites. All three will eat a graphic like this up and it will get shared all over the internet.
To the rest of us who at least have a passing knowledge in foreign policy and how the world actually works, insulting a world leader and an ally** for the sake of shares and retweets is a bad idea. For both Israel and the USA.
**Or at least should be an ally. This is the Obama Administration we’re talking about.
