Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu unveiled on Monday what he said was evidence of a secret Iranian nuclear weapons program that could step up pressure on the United States to pull out of a 2015 nuclear deal with Iran.

Intelligence experts and diplomats said Netanyahu's presentation did not seem to have a "smoking gun" showing a violation by Iran but it could strengthen the hand of advisers to U.S. President Donald Trump who want to scrap the nuclear agreement.

Most of the purported evidence Netanyahu presented dated to the period before the 2015 accord was signed, but that didn't stop the internet from having a field day imagining all the other possible big reveals Netanyahu could have made.

Here’s what the internet had to say about Netanyahu's Iran speech

Twitter was instantly buzzing with memes, even Tehran's foreign minister got in on the action tweeting Netanyahu is "the boy who cried wolf", and called his presentation propaganda.

One Twitter user "corrected" Netanyahu's graphic of "Iran lied" to "I lied," while others came up with a myriad of humorous reveals.
