While you were out, our tangerine-hued commander-in-chief made the announcement we’re bailing on the Iran nuclear deal. You know, just like he’s been promising all along. Naturally, leftist softies are melting down over this latest blow to Barry-O’s legacy of suck.
Here are ten of our favorite reactions:
It took five years of diplomacy to build the sanctions regime and two years of diplomacy to reach a Deal. Trump is blowing that up with no understanding of what's actually in the Deal, no plan for what comes next, and no support from our closest European allies, Russia or China. https://t.co/59c3uQtKI5

A deal they’re not honoring.
Pulling out of the Iran deal is an insanely stupid idea. Everyone who retweets agrees. Like, one of the dumbest ideas Trump’s ever had. And he wanted to partner on cybersecurity with Russia who attacks our infrastructure and democracy daily. It’s dumber. Much dumber. #TrumpResign

Uh, a Twitter consensus doesn’t equal reality. Keep in mind, many of those same tweeters made a trend out of eating pouches of laundry detergent.
I'm sure I'm not the only one thinking this, but: even if a sane president is elected in 2020, how can other countries ever trust us again? The Paris deal, the Iran deal … how can anyone trust us to rebuild them when we might elect a madman/moron at any time?

So, according to leftists, we ought to base our decisions on how other countries will think about us. The top dog taking commands from his lessers is totes normal to them.
Then, there’s the doomsday leftists prophesying the end-times:
The President’s “accomplishment” today is making it easier for Iran to re-start its nuclear weapons program.
For this, he’ll get a big cheer from the same crowd who got us into Iraq.
Vote them out. Vote them all out.

Trump just exited the Iran nuclear deal with no Plan B, manufacturing a crisis to appeal to his base.
He and all his outside enablers now own the consequences.
But as the risk of war goes up, I fear it will be our men & women in uniform who will ultimately pay the price. 1/3

Remember this speech by Trump.
This is how the Iran war started.#IranDeal

Yeah, we’ve heard all of that before with the handling of the fat boy in North Korea. Yet here we are, on the verge of getting a little peace between the two of us. Leftists seem unaware there are alternatives to kneeling down and smooching Iran’s rectal region.
.@ChrisMurphyCT: "Pulling out of the Iran deal is like a soccer player deliberately kicking the ball into their own team’s goal."

Staying in is like picking lint from your bellybutton while the other team scores goals.

This one sums up the former deal perfectly. We kowtow to the Iranians and they promise not to nuke us. Sounds pretty craptastic to me.
Obama policies dumped by Trump: Iran deal, Paris Climate Agreement, Trans-Pacific Trade Deal, DACA, Obamacare Individual Mandate

Let’s see here. A disaster, a piss poor arrangement, another stellar fail, mucho suckage, and a Grade-A clusterfu*k. Frankly, the only question this raises is which Obama failure to get rid of next.
Donald Trump’s day so far:
– Withdraws from Iran deal
– Lies about the reason
– Fuck this guy
– He’ll be in prison soon
– We’ll put the deal back in place
– This is America
– Trump is not an American
– Seriously, fuck him
– It’s still only 2:30pm

Well, he sounds like a stable individual.
Even our former Dumboesque dictator-in-chief weighed in on his legacy being further erased by the Trumpinator:

Barry still has yet to realize his era is behind us. We’re done with bowing to our enemies, crossing our fingers, and hoping they don’t rain down on us with thermonuclear devices. We’re trying a new strategy. One where we aren’t somebody’s bitch.
We’ll see how this situation plays out, but one thing’s for sure. The leftist butthurt will keep a coming.
