Ayatollah tweets photo of Obama with gun to own head – how apropos . . . shall we send more money?

Iran’s supreme leader seems to be threatening President Barack Obama.

Seeking an “up” vote from Congress, the Obama administration is working hard to prop up its “historic” nuclear deal with Iran, but its partners across the table are not helping matters.

In the aftermath of the controversial agreement, the Persian Gulf country persists in saber-rattling.

Adding to the “death to America” chants that marked a speech he made in the days after announcement of the deal, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei posted a cryptic message on social media that included what looks to be an image of President Barack Obama holding a gun to his own head.

Social media users pounced on the opportunity to remind the White House that it was a good example of who their “wonderful new friends” are.

Here’s a sampling of responses to Khamenei on Twitter:
