If there’s one person who really needs to shut up about U.S.-Iran relations, it’s Ben Rhodes. But he can’t shut up. Because he’s Ben Rhodes. So he’ll tweet stuff like this:
The press grilled Obama over the most obscure provisions of the Iran Deal. I don’t think they’ve ever even asked Trump if he knows what’s in it.

What can we even say about that tweet except … the chutzpah. It’s like Ben Rhodes forgot who he is and who he worked for.

One thing I've noticed is how mean the press was to Obama compared to Trump. https://t.co/HF7JQqL6Yl

The only thing the press “grilled” Barack Obama about was how awesome he was.
Honestly ben, can you link me the interview where Obama was grilled on this?
— D Gunn (@dlgwoodwork) January 8, 2020
Where was he grilled on anything?

The grilled Obama so much they got a thrill up their leg. https://t.co/58uFxJqHqF

As for the Iran Deal business … Ben should’ve taken the L a loooooong time ago.
Like how many pallets of cash.

Pallets of money to terrorists….a brilliant doctrine truly.

If only Trump had done the same, Ben would be singing his praises!
And make no mistake: It’s bullsh*t. So, basically it’s what we’d expect from Ben Rhodes.
Ben "Echo Chamber" Rhodes has some thoughts about the press and Iran https://t.co/7LHT6YmtQo

You literally bragged about getting reporters who “know nothing” to carry water for the deal. https://t.co/DpWg2IT7sO

He was hoping you’d forget about that.
My god you are not good at this.
