Twitter bursts out laughing after Donald Trump said he imposed sanctions against Ayatollah Khomeini (he’s been dead since 1989). He is referring to Iran’s current supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. And he says he’s smarter than most!
What’s equally pathetic is that an aide most likely gave Trump the prepared statement. Either they are incompetent or they just don’t give a sh*t what he says. I am inclined to believe it’s the former and not the later. There is literally a band of idiots in the White House.

Of course, Ayatollah Khomeini is trending on Twitter because of Donald Trump’s ignorance:

Not only did Pence and Mnuchin not realize that Ayatollah Khomeini has been dead for 30 years, the White House staff who prepared that statement for Trump didn't realize it either. Ship of fools.https://t.co/Tj5NIAKJi9

Without even looking, I knew that Ayatollah Khomeini was trending because Trump is an idiot — in the same way I always know Sarah Sanders is trending because she’s a liar. I’m getting too good at this.

Trump just sanctioned the Ayatollah Khomeini. Saddam Hussein must be shaking in his boots right about now.
