Former Obama advisor and Iran Deal guru Ben Rhodes decided to weigh in on the anti-government protests taking place in Iran.
The Iranian people are rightfully demanding dignity, less corruption, more opportunity, and greater control over their lives. In looking at US twitter, it seems lost on too many that this is about what Iranians want for Iran, and not about us.

And in a single tweet, we have the Obama administration’s entire foreign policy and world leadership summed up perfectly.
Who enabled the repressive regime, Ben? https://t.co/vSNkomB3Mf

It’s like this guy just tweets with zero self-awareness. https://t.co/jYVxlT8VVi

Rhodes and his boss did not seem to care about the Iranian people’s longing for freedom during the eight years when they were leading the U.S.
Ben Rhodes & the Obama admin never gave a damn about the reality in Iran. They legitimized & empowered the Iranian regime against the people of Iran. https://t.co/f1ZKhSnFtX

After days of silence, Ben Rhodes loyally articulates the echo chamber statement that this is up to Iranians, and it's a domestic issue that we shouldn't weigh in on. Again, remember that the people with all of the guns are controlled by the regime.https://t.co/ISgWwLHkyy

Everything you and your former boss did regarding Iran was the exact opposite of those things. https://t.co/qfD7Zr7zec

Under the guise of a “Nuclear Deal,” the Obama administration transferred loads of cash to support the very regime and government from which the protesters want to free themselves. Now they want to talk about Iranians “rightfully demanding dignity.” Give us a break.
