The US President has threatened Iranian President Hassan Rouhani with “consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before” after he spoke out against America’s anti-Iran policy.
The Twitter tirade shocked politicians and commentators around the world – particularly when White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders refused to say whether Trump consulted with national security aides before sending the tweet (we’re guessing that’s a no then).
But potential nuclear Armageddon aside, the Internet couldn’t help but poke fun at the over-the-top outburst.
“To Iranian President Rouhani: I AM EMAILING ON BEHALF OF THE ESTATE OF NIGERIAN PRINCE ABACHA TUNDE. I WRITE TO REQUEST YOUR ASSISTANCE IN TRANSFERRING MONEY FROM ACCOUNT, WHICH IS REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY DUE TO LEGAL. PLEASE REPLY WITH YOUR BANK DETAILS TO ASSIST THIS. BE CAUTIOUS!” one person posted on Twitter.
We’re going to miss laughing at Trump jokes when we’ve all been blasted into radioactive pieces.
