We’re not exactly sure why, but Ben Rhodes seems to be under the impression that his opinions on foreign policy are actually worth a damn.
Someone really needs to disabuse him of that notion.
Earlier today, John Bolton tweeted about Iran’s latest attempts to flex their military muscles:
Iran's launch of a military satellite is proof we are still not applying enough pressure, deterrence has not been restored, & coronavirus is not slowing down the ayatollahs. Iran's goal remains ICBMs capable of carrying nuclear weapons. They cannot be trusted.

And Ben Rhodes finally got around to commenting on it:
Aliens could invade Earth and the answer from the DC hawks and grifters would still be more pressure on Iran. https://t.co/3fYbovLhOH

What, pray tell, is wrong with putting pressure on Iran? You have some kind of affinity for the Iranian regi— ohhhhhh. Right.
Ben is out here defending Iran launching expensive military satellites when the regime is out there claiming that U.S. sanctions have meant it doesn't have enough money to respond to the coronavirus crisis in its country. https://t.co/pyCMys85rp

Aliens could invade Earth and Ben Rhodes’ first concern would be what it means for the Iranian regime. https://t.co/M3mOsWULCJ
