Iran's Leader Pokes Trump With Photo of Him Reading 'Fire & Fury'
Iran's head of state took an apparent shot at President Donald Trump on Friday with a selfie he posted on Instagram.
Ayatollah Ali Hosseini Khamenei posted a picture of himself reading "Fire & Fury" a tell-all book about the purported discordant environment inside the White House.
"If I left out anything, it's probably stuff that was even more damning. It's that bad - it's an extraordinary moment in time," author Michael Wolff said in describing his book to NBC earlier this year.
After the book's release, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders pushed back on the veracity of its claims and Trump tweeted that he did not allow Wolff unfettered access to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
I authorized Zero access to White House (actually turned him down many times) for author of phony book! I never spoke to him for book. Full of lies, misrepresentations and sources that don’t exist. Look at this guy’s past and watch what happens to him and Sloppy Steve!

"Today, the revolutionary leader is browsing a book about the... president of the United States," Khamenei's post's caption read.
Khamenei, 78, said earlier this week that Trump's "corpse... will be worm food" while the Iranian regime continues to stand, after the president removed the United States from the Iran nuclear deal.
The parliament in Tehran later burned an American flag and chanted "death to America."
