Iran's Ayatollah Trolls US "Zionist Custody"

Yesterday during the presidential debate, hyper-conservative Ann Coulter unleashed a major tweet storm which touched quite a few nerves due to its anti-Israel/zionist overtones, and has been extensively covered in the press this morning. Here are her more notable tweets:

How many f---ing Jews do these people think there are in the United States?

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter)

Cruz, Huckabee Rubio all mentioned ISRAEL in their response to: "What will AMERICA look like after you are president."

— Ann Coulter (@AnnCoulter)

Maybe it's to suck up to the Evangelicals.

Based on Census, another 300 immigrants entered the country during debate (33 per second) to vote against the GOP candidates' tax &war plans

Christie also talks @ Israel in response to the question: What will AMERICA look like after you are president?

How to get applause from GOP donors: 1) Pledge to start a war 2) Talk about job creators 3) Denounce abortion 4) Cite Reagan 5) Cite Israel.

I like the Jews, I like fetuses, I like Reagan. Didn't need to hear applause lines about them all night. https://t.co/4guFehK0CM

It's not about Jewish people; it's about Republican panderers. https://t.co/OmOL2B9K0E

Her tweets appear to have touched a nerve not only domestically, but abroad as well with Iran's supreme leader Khamenei who, after being the topic of many mispronounced rants last night, decided to follow up moments ago with his own "anti-Zionist" tweetstorm:

US govs put their people under Zionists custody.Isn’t it a shame that presidential candidates try to satisfy Zionists&prove their servitude?

— Khamenei.ir (@khamenei_ir)

Zionist regime is an imposed regime, made through coercion; no entity made by coercion would last. This regime will not survive either.11/13

Will this confluence of hyper conservative views and Iranian fundamentalism complicate Obama's efforts to open Iran up to western financial interests? Hardly. After all money always walks.
