The White House is putting up a united front this week concerning the justified antics of upset Iranians. They’ve officially stirred the pot (see Former CIA Official Compares Trump and Obama’s Reactions to Iran Protests and Linda Sarsour Uses Iran Protests to Bash Trump, Gets Called Out…). Rightly so. After president Trump noted his support for the the protests, he made the bold move of cutting monies to Pakistan. Sorry, not sorry.
When asked what is President Trump’s “end game” in Iran, Sanders said she thinks “the people of Iran are actually given basic human rights, and [Trump] would certainly like to see them stop being a state sponsor of terror.”
“I think that’s what the whole world would like to see.”
The White House press secretary was then asked if Trump’s support of the protesters may cause a “backlash against them by the Iranian government.”
“No, I think one of the big things that even Hillary Clinton outlined in this when she said that the Obama Administration was too restrained in the 2009 protests and said that that won’t happen again. For once, she is right and we agree with her because President Trump is not going to sit by silently like President Obama did. He certainly supports the Iranian people and wants to make that clear.”
Have we mentioned lately how good Sarah Sanders is? Because damn, she’s good. She even managed to slap around Obama and Hillary a little bit there.
She’s right. President Trump isn’t going to twiddle his thumbs and say nothing. It’s certainly not in his nature. But more importantly, a country built on freedom supports the freedom of others. A strong leader isn’t afraid to stand in the face of opposition.
I don’t know about you, but all these people speaking on Iran is giving me a serious case of the good feels. A strong nation is united on all fronts. It’s a plus one of those fronts has a nice face, another has brass man jewels, and the third has a gaze which could incinerate Obama and Hillary at the same time.
