Former Rep. Michele Bachmann on Tuesday compared President Obama to the Germanwings co-pilot who authorities believe intentionally rammed a passenger jet into the French Alps last week, killing 150 people including himself.

“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,” the Minnesota Republican wrote on Facebook.

“After the fact, among the smoldering remains of American cities, the shocked survivors will ask, why did he do it?” she wrote.
