THREAD

1)
#FakeNews @CNN continues to provide a platform for #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists - such as @tparsi - to spread lies about U.S. sanctions.
2)
.@CNN begins by claiming Iranians are in the streets protesting new sanctions.

Obvious Tehran talking points.

Despite the regime chanting "Death to America," here's how the Iranian people feel about America.
3)
@tparsi claims sanctions will be targeting the Iranian people.

His lies are easily debunked in this thread.
4)
The regime, however, is so worried that it is already resorting to terror threats in response to these sanctions.

Becoming very desperate, @tparsi takes his gloves off & says the Trump administration should provide #Iran incentives, just like the Obama administration did.

Here's how Iranians remember Obama.

@tparsi claims #Iran's regime has been "honoring" & "living up to" the 2015 nuclear deal.

Here's proof that he is lying.

Why would they when #Iran is violating the deal & the document was never even signed?

Trump has said he's ready for talks.

#Iran's regime is refusing.

And BTW, @tparsi is the founder of @NIACouncil, the main #Iran regime lobby group in the U.S.

And Iranians actually launched a hashtag saying:

#Shut_Up_NIAC
11)
At the end of the day, @CNN should be ashamed of itself for providing platforms for such #Iran regime apologists/lobbyists who are loathed by the Iranian people.

Here's another example:

More reason why lesser people are watching CNN these days...
