President CrazyPants’ unauthorized missile strike that resulted in the death of the leader of Iran’s Quds Force and his subsequent threats to target Iran’s culture sites isn’t going down well. For starters, Iran has promised a “crushing and powerful retaliation on American soil,” including the White House as they branded Trump as a “terrorist in a suit”‘ after he took to Twitter to threaten to attack 52 Iranian targets. Trump has succeeded in turning a really shitty person like General Qassem Soleimania into a martyr.
And now, Iranian authorities put an $80 million bounty on Trump’s head during Soleimani’s televised funeral. Apparently, the Trump administration’s attempt to de-escalate the situation isn’t working, probably because Trump escalated it with his heated and violent rhetoric on Twitter.
The official said one US dollar would be tabled for every Iranian in the country, with the cash going to whoever kills Trump.
“Iran has 80 million inhabitants. Based on the Iranian population, we want to raise $80 million which is a reward for those who get close to the head of President Trump,” he said.

On top of that, Iran said Sunday that it was ending its commitment to the 2015 nuclear deal with world powers following the assassination of Soleimani. Trump withdrew from the deal last May — likely because it was an effort of Obama’s — renewing tensions between the two countries that are now peaking.
Also on Sunday, Hezbollah’s leader said that U.S. forces will “pay the price” for the killing Soleimani and added that U.S. forces will go home in coffins.
“Fair punishment is (aimed at) the American military presence in the region: American military bases, American naval ships, every American officer and soldier in our countries and region,” Hassan Nasrallah said, according to Reuters.
“The American army is the one that killed them and it is the one that will pay the price,” he said.
He added that U.S. civilians in the region “should not be touched” because it would serve Trump’s agenda.
“When the coffins of American soldiers and officers begin to be transported … to the United States, Trump and his administration will realize that they have really lost the region and will lose the elections,” Nasrallah said.
Well, that escalated quickly, didn’t it? The Dog-Wagger-In-Chief will start a war just to delay his impeachment trial.
