Former United Nations ambassador and National Security Advisor for the Obama administration Susan Rice gave President Trump a bit of unsolicited advice about how to deal with the anti-government protests in Iran.
She says for him to shut up.
How Can Trump Help Iran’s Protesters? Be Quiet. https://t.co/w0MNlWMkxG

Remind us what qualifications Rice has to be shouting down the president on this?
Oh, the Iran Deal. Just look at how that has been going.
Take your own advice. https://t.co/tym0ERY3Nf

Hard to think of anyone with less moral authority to promote this, but the Obama echo chamber has nonetheless all coalesced around it. https://t.co/SaFhdUqcRz

Can anyone remember a single positive foreign policy move the U.S. made when Susan Rice was involved?
What an appalling article and thesis. What a departure from American ideals. What a revealing post-mortem of the Obama-Rice Mideast policy. https://t.co/cysjRb3ViA

Obama alums have found their talking point on #IranianProtests: They oppose US help for protesters whether diplomatic, material, or moral. It's a repeat of their abandonment of Iranian people in 2009, this time using Trump as their excuse. https://t.co/7oxnUS23D2

Interestingly, we don’t remember Susan Rice being quiet the Sunday after four Americans were killed in Benghazi, Lybia. In fact, she went on five separate Sunday talk shows to espouse an unverified and ultimately false conclusion that the attack was the result of a video.
So yeah, she needs to sit this one out.
