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.

Twitter users cracked up.

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.

Conover makes tea partiers cry as a hobby. She was Commander of Jade Helm15 during the failed takeover of the South. She's also one of the biggest arseholes on Twitter. At night, she can be found drinking Conservative tears while pulling off the wings of flies just because she can. She is the founder of a Marxist, Commie, Maoist, Socialist site and has contributed to several other sites, blah blah blah. She is an awful person but she doesn't like to brag about that.
