In a post on her Facebook page, former Congresswoman Michele Bachmann compares president Obama to the German pilot who apparently deliberately flew his passenger plane into the Alps, killing all aboard.
It’s a continuation of her attacks on an Iranian nuclear deal that the U.S. is negotiating in the Middle East. She said that, with the deal, Obama is like “a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks.”
The Jerusalem Post quickly picked up the story, with the headline:
Far-right former congresswoman compares Obama to mentally ill Germanwings pilot

The text of her post:
With his Iran deal, Barack Obama is for the 300 million souls of the United States what Andreas Lubitz was for the 150 souls on the German Wings flight – After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?
