On Monday, Donald Trump announced additional U.S. sanctions against Iran that target the country’s supreme leader, along with other high-ranking officials. Trump took out his pen to sign the executive order and said it will deny the supreme leader and others access to financial instruments. He’s hitting them where it hurts and we can’t imagine how Ayatollah Khomeini, who has been dead since 1989, will be able to handle the financial hardships that President Stable Genius just placed on his corpse. Trump said that with Dumb and Dumber standing beside him.
“Sanctions imposed through the executive order that I’m about to sign will deny the Supreme Leader and the Supreme Leader’s Office, and those closely affiliated with him and the office, access to key financial resources and support. The assets of Ayatollah Khomeini and his office will not be spared from the sanctions,” Trump said at the signing of the executive order.

Crackerjack job, champ. Ayatollah Khomeini has been dead for 30 years. Good luck sanctioning his corpse.

To put this in perspective, #Ayatollah Khomeini died the same year “Girl I’m gonna miss you” by Milli Vanilli was popular. But yeah, Trump is a “young, *vibrant* man”.

This spells trouble. It’s only a matter of time before Iran strikes back and seizes JFK’s assets.

He’s sanctioning someone who has been dead since 1989???

Ayatollah Khomeini??? Seriously? There wasn’t a living soul at the most important office in the world to remind #Trump that Ayatollah Khomeini is under loads of soil since 1989? 🤦🏻♂️

At this point, The official White House twitter should just have a facepalm emoji beside it at all times.

The Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini served as Iran’s Supreme Leader from 1979 until 1989. After he died in 1989, he was succeeded by the current Supreme Leader, Ali Khamenei. Two. Different. People. And one of them is a dead guy.
