WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – She may no longer be in Congress, but that hasn’t stopped Michele Bachmann from criticizing President Barack Obama.

The former Republican Minnesota Congresswoman compared the president to the Germanwings co-pilot who allegedly crashed his own plane.

“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 – a deranged pilot flying his entire nation into the rocks,” she wrote on her Facebook page.

“After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, ‘Why did he do it?’ ” the post continued.

Bachmann’s remarks come as the White House tries to reach a deal with Iran to slow or stop its pursuit of nuclear weapons in exchange for the lifting of onerous economic sanctions.
