The Twitter account set up by the White House to promote the controversial Iran nuclear deal decided to get hip and with it Thursday by joining the latest Internet meme circulating on social media.
As just about everyone except whoever maintains the @theirandeal account
would have thought, the response was not overwhelmingly positive.
The tweet was a response to a BuzzFeed tweet that proclaimed "Straight Outta Compton," the upcoming biopic on the late '80s hip hop group NWA the "most memetacular film of 2015." People have been changing "Compton" to their own hometowns or using other references that typically are intended to be much more tame and boring than the gangsta rap lyrics of NWA.
Sen. Marco Rubio, a Republican presidential candidate, jumped in with the GOP argument against the deal:
Other tweeters compared it to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's request on Wednesday for people to share their feelings on student loans in three emojis.
Luke Brinker, Salon's politics editor, also tweeted, "Memes won't make America great again."
