Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham (SC) took to Twitter on Monday to tweet his disgust about how some Democrats reacted to protests in Iran.
“Instead of supporting the Iranian people’s demands for freedom, Speaker Pelosi and The Squad made the protest about American policy and @realDonaldTrump,” Graham tweeted.
Graham’s comment is a good point, since the protests were really about Iran’s own freedom and leadership rather than about anything that America did.
Over 1,000 protesters assembled in Tehran and other locations in Iran to demand the resignation of the Ayatolleh Khameni after Iran shot down a Ukrainian jet carrying 176 passengers and crew members, including some Iranian nationals.
Iran has admitted to shooting down the plane but said it was a mistake that occurred in the middle of a series of air strikes against U.S. military bases in Iraq.
