Trump Fell For Fake News About Iran Launching A Ballistic Missile
September 25, 2017

Donald Trump, the moron currently occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, fell for....ready? FAKE NEWS. Yes, this dolt fell for news that Iran had tested a missile this past Saturday.

In response, Trump fired off this tweet (without getting all the facts):

Well, U.S. officials report that the video was actually of a launch that took place in January. Oh, and the missile exploded shortly after launch.

Interesting timing, as Trump has been doing a whole bunch of "reality show tv" drama by hinting that he may tear up the Iran Nuclear Deal that Obama hammered out in 2015.

Can you help us out?
