We will now see our most highly principled Republican lawmakers crease their noble brows with their sternest expressions of disapproval for this murder as they continue to vote to enable those who profit by it.
The most unflinchingly moral among them might even preserve a vestige of that frown later in the day, when they collect at the feeding trough with their peers.
Mr Trump, he loves them so. Jared is a genius.

Happens all the time in Russ-e-a and wouldn’t it be great if we got along with them?
Now that we have another president that is close personal friends and business partners with the Saudi royalty, why would anyone expect disapproval from the administration or ANY Republican elected official? I mean, no one wants to get primaried.
After all, Republicans are longing for and moving toward the day when journalists and other opponents disappear or die under tragic and mysterious circumstances.
Oh, good one Jeff!
And the Gunny’s…
They still decapitate folks with swords for serious crimes, like dating without daddy’s approval.
Turns out that Trump performed the investigation himself.
And the results were truly surprising:
Trump said the Saudis denied it. Not only denied it, but firmly denied it!
So there you have it, a thorough, impartial investigation at the highest levels. So, move along folks, nothing to see here.
“Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million. Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”
