Looks like Iran’s trolling is ahead of its technology.

A tweeted selfie of an Iranian minister alongside an unlaunched telecommunications satellite poked fun Saturday at President Trump’s social media commentary on the explosion of a rocket at an Iranian space center a few days earlier.

“Me & Nahid 1 right now, Good Morning Donald Trump!” read the pointed message from Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, Iran’s minister of Information and Technology Communications.

Jahromi had previously mocked Trump via his Twitter feed with 146,000 followers, ridiculing the president for referring to the moon as a part of Mars and poking fun at “Fox & Friends,” the preferred morning viewing in the White House.

Trump, in his tweet a day earlier, posted an apparent U.S. surveillance photo of the Thursday explosion aftermath at the Imam Khomeini Space Center. It marked the third failure of an Iranian launch as suspicions arose about possible sabotage — referenced by Trump in his tweet.

“The United States of America was not involved in the catastrophic accident during final launch preparations for the Safir SLV Launch at Semnan Launch Site One in Iran,” wrote Trump, specifically mention the rocket in question. “I wish Iran best wishes and good luck in determining what happened at Site One.”

The U.S. believes the satellite initiative is simply a cover for the Tehran government to work on its ballistic missile program.

The rocket was supposed to launch the Nahid-1 satellite, which remained earthbound and intact on Saturday. The Nahid-1 contained foldable solar panels, and was slated to remain in a low orbit around the Earth into November.

“I have no idea about the Americans’ comment about Semnan space site,” said Jahromi. “But what could be seen today is that the Nahid satellite is here.”
