President Trump mocked top Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi on Monday by tweeting out an image showing them in Muslim headdresses.
The meme mocked the Democrats’ sympathetic disposition toward Iran following the Trump administration’s killing of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani.
“The corrupted Dems trying their best to come to the Ayatollah’s rescue,” the original tweet said, including the hashtag #NancyPelosiFakeNews.

Trump went on an anti-Pelosi Twitter spree, posting multiple links with the hashtag #NancyPelosiFakeNews, including the following video of the congresswoman dismissing Iranians who are protesting against their regime.

🔴The Iranian people are being killed in the streets by the Islamic Republic, but Nancy Pelosi in the USA supports those who kill the Iranian people. Why?#NancyPelosiFakeNews https://t.co/gGCyoLYkYX

While the Iranian people are being killed by the mullahs in the protests, you are lying to the American people! The real people of Iran don’t want the Democrats-backed terrorists. Shame on you for playing with the blood of Iranian people.

Just for a second assume there is no Dem nor Rep party. Look at the reality. Iranians want mullas gone. They’ve been massacred on Nov when main media were covering Trump impeachment. Be a human and stand for human right. #NancyPelosiFakeNews

Meanwhile, in response to Iran shooting down a Ukrainian passenger jet, the Iranian people are chanting, “Death to Islamic Republic dictatorship” instead of “Death to America” and footage shows them refusing to walk on Israeli and American flags.
Watch how Iranian students refuse to step on American & the flag of Israel.
This should embarrassed Iranian regime & their propaganda funeral for #Soleimani where people were told to chant “Death To America”.
Now people in Iran chanting “Death to Islamic Republic dictatorship.” pic.twitter.com/hTxDuxZeaB

In fact, demonstrators were even seen attacking images of former Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani.

On Saturday, President Trump also sent out tweets showing his support for the Iranian protesters, saying, “The government of Iran must allow human rights groups to monitor and report facts from the ground on the ongoing protests by the Iranian people. There can not be another massacre of peaceful protesters, nor an internet shutdown. The world is watching.”
به مردم شجاع و رنج کشیده ایران: من از ابتدای دوره ریاست جمهوریم با شما ایستادهام و دولت من همچنان با شما خواهد ایستاد. ما اعتراضات شما را از نزدیک دنبال می کنیم. شجاعت شما الهام بخش است.

Of course, Twitter was flooded with liberals who were triggered by the image of Pelosi in a hijab and Schumer wearing a turban.
This retweet by Trump is racist. Please make a note hapless, neutered, propagandized, corporate media. I want to see this on every news channel tonight. https://t.co/dI9qIPapKt

Donald Trump retweeted a FAKE image of Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer dressed in traditional Islamic attire in front of an Iranian flag.
Not an hour passes in Trump’s corrupt, worthless existence when he doesn’t find a way to scam America. Shameful.

Wow. Asked why Trump retweeted a photoshopped image of Schumer & Pelosi wearing a turban & head scarf w/ Iranian flag, Stephanie Grisham attempts to explain by saying he was “making clear” Democrats are “parroting Iranian talking points & almost taking the side of terrorists.”
