Looks like the media will finally figure out they can’t keep comparing Obama to Trump with the Iran problem because ultimately it just makes Obama look like an emasculated do-nothing who enabled a terrorist regime by giving them planes full of money.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders laid down the law:

From ABC News:
The White House is expressing support for protesters demonstrating against the Iranian government, but is stopping short of calling for regime change.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders on Tuesday called the protests an “organic popular uprising organized by brave Iranian citizens.” She says the international community “cannot sit silent” as those demonstrating are met with violence.
Sanders says: “The United States supports the Iranian people and we call on the regime to respect its citizens’ basic right to peacefully express their desire for change.”
Asked whether the ultimate goal is for Iran’s Islamist government to be replaced, Sanders said the U.S. hopes Iran begins to respect the rights of its people and ends its support for terrorist groups.
Can you say BOOM?
If not, we’ll say it for you.
And of course, since Sarah dropped the mic, the Left went into full freakout attack mode (gotta protect their king’s legacy ya’ know):
Trump certainly wasn't silent when he gave away Israeli intel to Russia or when he defended nazis.

Blah blah blah Russia, blah blah blah.
Oh pipe Down Dear! In 2017 it was deplorable, It’s a new Year and the broken record, is just that. Broken.

Don’cha love how the tolerant Left treats Sarah? (Related: The Mainstream Media’s ‘Coverage’ of the Iran Protests Proves They Are Fake News)
Just means she’s getting under their skin (and we kinda sorta love it).
It's not our business. How would he like it if Germany got involved in the US protests?

Why would Germany get involved in the lame protests the glitter vagina club keeps putting on?
He defends Iranian protestors while shaming American ones…

Perhaps these yahoos missed it, but Iran is actually protesting for something REAL, they’re not just having a bitchfest about Trump and whining about women having to pay for their own birth control.
He's going to Tweet about it? How brave and bold. 😂

What did Obama do? Oh, that’s right, he enabled and empowered the Mullahs and the authoritarian regime.
Our bad. (Related: State Department Suggests Iran Overthrow: Early Stages Of Regime Change?)
