Iran's leader celebrates Islamic Revolution's anniversary with cries of 'Death to Trump
Fox News ^ | February 8, 2019 | Elizabeth Llorente

In a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the Islamic Revolution, Iran's Ayatollah Ali Khamenei sought to clear the air with Americans who might take offense at the “Death to America” chants that have marked the nationwide rallies there to mark the occasion.

The “Death to America” chants, Khamenei said, are directed at the Trump administration, according to multiple published reports, and not the American people.

Khamenei, appearing before a group of Iranian air force officers, said the United States was "the embodiment of evil, violence, crisis-making and warmongering.”

"The U.S. officials, while insulting the Iranian nation, ask why you say ‘Death to America,'" Khamenei said. "First of all, I want to tell the American people that 'Death to America' means 'Death to Trump, Bolton and Pompeo.' It means down with the American politicians in charge, who are currently represented by the aforementioned persons."

In other words they're in solidarity with the Democrats.

Odd. America’s enemies never chanted “Death to Obma”

Hasn’t it been “Death to America” through multiple administrations?

It’s not just Trump. But, maybe it is strictly business, not personal. They always liked us.

He just doesn’t get that this isn’t Obama’s America
any more.

Dear Imam,
In America, when you insult, slander and threaten
our ELECTED leaders, you insult, slander and threaten
EVERY AMERICAN, and that would include the likes of
Barak Obama as well.
We don’t have to take your sh*t.
Keep it up and see what happens.
Be careful or we will turn ISRAEL loose on your ass.
Have a nice day.

That’s what I was alluding to. But there is a difference.

In the movie, Tessio says, “Tell Mike I always liked him.”

None of that here. Would the head Mullah say, “Tell Trump I always liked him.” No way!
