We all know how this is going to end.
The Saudis Crown Prince bin Salman will get away with murdering an American resident, and reporter for the Washington Post, even though his thugs were caught red-handed and tried to cover it up.
I recall, not so long ago, when Trump told us that Putin said he didn't interfere with the 2016 election...and Trump believed him.
In a repeat of history - just changing the authoritarian leader - Trump has come out defending the Crown Prince after talking with him on the phone yesterday.
The same unreal response that accompanied his love fest with Putin has popped up (like a jaded pervert)…"He said he didn't do it. He really meant it," Trump said in both cases.
Make no mistake, Trump was never going to hold the Crown Prince liable for anything. He said as much to the press when he said he wasn't about to give up a $110 billion arms deal with the kingdom over one journalist. Which was in character for Trump. The opposite of American beliefs and values.
When Trump first heard the news of Kashoggi's murder he quickly called for calm, and made comments like it could have been done by rogue elements. I find that suggestion very telling.
Bin Salman's story follows that plot, claiming the murder was an accident by rogue elements in his government. Makes you wonder doesn't it?
When you take Jared Kushner, Bin Salman's new bitch, and throw his sneaky ass into the mix it's practically a slam dunk. Unreported calls between the White House and Saudi Arabia's new strongman are nothing new.
Can you say conspiracy?
Time for me to walk on down the road...
