Trump’s Explosive Late-Night, All-Caps Threat to Iran Melts Down Twitter: ‘DEFCON 2’


Overnight, President Donald Trump tweeted an all-caps warning to Iran never to threaten the United States again, or “suffer consequences the likes of which few throughout history have ever suffered before.”

The president’s tweet was in response to a threat from Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani, who on Sunday warned Trump directly in a televised speech that blocking Iran’s oil exports could lead to ‘the mother of all wars.’ Trump responded on Twitter, as he does.

Given the timing of Trump’s tweet — it came at 11:24 p.m. on a sleepy Sunday night — it sparked groans of terror on journalists’s favorite social media platform.

Some were scorching.

And naturally, some were hilarious.

Among democrat politicians, you may notice a theme.

But surely this says it all.
