.@JohnKerry: We extend deepest condolences to #Iran President @HassanRouhani and his family on passing of his mother. http://t.co/IW5SLqUhVc
— Department of State (@StateDept) March 20, 2015
The State Department tweeted its condolences to Iranian President Hassan Rouhani yesterday on the death of his mother.
The U.S. hasn’t had diplomatic relations with Iran in 36 years. State’s love-fest toward Rouhani was so over the top, it prompted one AP reporter to ask, “Are you sending flowers, as well?”
What were they thinking?
This is the same State Department, under Secretary of State John Kerry, that waited days before tweeting a weak congratulations to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for his election victory.
The twitterverse minced no words: “you gotta be out of your freakin’ mind!”
@StateDept @JohnKerry YOU GOTTA BE OUT OF YOUR FREAKIN MIND! HOW ABOUT ALL THE AMERICAN HOSTAGES HELD BY IRAN! THE 1000s KILLED BY IRAN?! — Kane_Strong (@TehOhJay) March 20, 2015
Yep, it’s official. We are now living in an alternate universe. @StateDept @JohnKerry @HassanRouhani #IStandWithIsrael #AmYisraelChai

.@StateDept Well, that was quick. You offer condolences to an Iranian dictator quicker than you’re able to congratulate @netanyahu. Unreal. — Andreas Fagerbakke (@afagerbakke) March 20, 2015

@StateDept @stephenfhayes @JohnKerry @HassanRouhani : any doubt Re Kerry’s intelligence is put rest! New level of stupid ! — Hiram Holland (@lovesimflight) March 20, 2015
This tweet may most succinctly represent most Americans’ response to the State Department’s folly:
@StateDept @JohnKerry @HassanRouhani No, we don’t.
