This is an actual tweet from the foreign minister of Iran (yes, Iran).
Do you even know what CIVILIZED means, @SecPompeo?
Is it sending drones over weddings to kill innocents?
Piracy on the high seas?
Maybe it’s pouring lethal weapons into a region to enable inhuman wars?
Or, is it a millennia-old nation that hasn’t attacked anyone for centuries?

As you might expect, State Department spox Morgan Ortagus has a few thoughts and reminders for the foreign minister.
Does the FM of the world’s top sponsor of terrorism consider hanging gays from cranes, stoning women, repressing minorities, allowing 9-year-old girls to be married off & jailing protestors of the compulsory hijab civilized? No wonder the Iranian people hate this backward regime. https://t.co/uFSb441r3P

Iran’s foreign minister lecturing Mike Pompeo about being civilized.
What a time to be on Twitter.
