Iran shot down a passenger jet near Tehran while the same country was also firing missiles at U.S. bases in Iraq. Many are somehow getting away with calling that “crossfire” while also insinuating or flat-out accusing President Trump of being responsible. The latest is Calif. Dem Rep. Jackie Speier:
.@RepSpeier tells @wolfblitzer if Iran did shoot down the Ukrainian Airlines plane, "This is yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken in a provocative way by the President of the United States." Wow.

Watch @RepSpeier say: #Iran shooting down Ukrainian Airlines, "Is yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken in a provocative way by the President of the United States."
No push back from @wolfblitzer.
This is wrong. This is on Iran. 👏 pic.twitter.com/3VDga3p5uY

And the insanity continues:
It’s one thing when lunatics like Tribe say lunatic things.
But @RepSpeier is an elected member of Congress blaming the President for Iran murdering 176 innocent people.
Just egregious. pic.twitter.com/FwzBBQLxLn

Members of Congress blaming the American President when Iran recklessly shoots down a passenger plane and kills 176 people is an incredible PR coup for the Ayatollah. https://t.co/tix07OjmZf

Do the Democrats realize what their insanity is doing?
If Democrats blame Trump for this, I will end up voting for him, and I'll never forgive them for it

They are helping him win re-election. I’m all for blaming Trump for his mistakes but this isn’t one of them.

Speechless. I’m officially done with the Democratic Party. No way I’m going to vote for any Democrat. A person who speaks like this is not only the enemy of America but the enemy of humanity.

Keep up the rhetoric, Democrats.
