Iran coronavirus news: People blame Rouhani for spending on missile instead of public interests

“Khamenei, Rouhani, you tell us to stay at home. We have stayed at home for a week now & closed most of the stores. So, use that stupid mind of yours & deposit our monthly subsidies earlier for the next few months so we can live, make ends meet. Don’t say we don’t have money. If you didn’t have money you wouldn’t be spending 200 billion to launch a missile & hit our own plane. So, you do have money. You just don’t want to give it to the people. You’re willing to spend it in another country but not give it to Iranians. God will never forgive you. You have no sense of religion or decency.”
