    Il Douche and the hijacked Republican party will take cash, check or charge to look the other way while you commit crimes against humanity.

    Not that we didn’t before, but at least then we had the decency to be conflicted about it.

    Saudis crashed the planes on 9/11 and Bush put the heat on Iraq to protect the Saudis from any repercussions.

    Having been a company head with absolute power, he admires other leaders with the same control. And those leaders with a democratic bent, he despises as “losers”.

    In 1991, as Mr. Trump was teetering on personal bankruptcy and scrambling to raise cash, he sold his 282-foot yacht “Princess” to Saudi billionaire Prince Alwaleed bin-Talal for $20 million, a third less than what he reportedly paid for it.

    Four years later, the prince came to his rescue again, joining other investors in a $325 million deal for Mr. Trump’s money-losing Plaza Hotel.

    In 2001, Mr. Trump sold the entire 45th floor of the Trump World Tower across from the U.N. in New York for $12 million, the biggest purchase in that building to that point, according to the brokerage site Streeteasy. The buyer: The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

    Shortly after he announced his run for president, Mr. Trump began laying the groundwork for possible new business in the kingdom. He registered eight companies with names tied to the country, such as “THC Jeddah Hotel Advisor LLC” and “DT Jeddah Technical Services,” according to a 2016 financial disclosure report to the federal government. Jeddah is a major city in the country.

    “Saudi Arabia, I get along with all of them. They buy apartments from me. They spend $40 million, $50 million,” Trump told a crowd at an Alabama rally on Aug. 21, 2015, the same day he created four of the entities. “Am I supposed to dislike them? I like them very much.”

    Trump: Saudi Arabia say they are innocent of any wrongdoing just like Kavanaugh. Case closed.

    Trump could dismember a journalist on 5th ave, and he wouldn’t lose the support of the GOP.

    Doubt that #45 would recognize the irony in that statement…

    Trump wants to know how this happened. He always loves getting tips on how to deal with the Press!

    On the same day that Secretary of State Mike Pompeo landed in Saudi Arabia to discuss the disappearance of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi, a previously promised $100 million landed in American bank accounts from Saudi Arabia, according to a The New York Times report.

    The Times reported that the money was for American efforts to stabilize Syria and that Saudi Arabia had promised the Trump administration the funds over the summer.

    The timing of the arrival of the money has raised eyebrows among some bureaucrats, the Times reported, as speculation heightens over the disappearance of Khashoggi.

    The Washington Post columnist was last seen entering the Saudi Consulate in Istanbul on Oct. 2, and Turkey has said that it has evidence that Saudi officials killed and dismembered him inside the consulate.

    Trump wouldn’t rephrase, just deny he said it.

    Fox News host Shepard Smith is plainly calling out Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for their startling response to the reports of a Saudi assassination squad traveling to Turkey to torture and kill journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an alleged gruesome murder that may have been directly ordered by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.

    Shep Smith first lays out the charges, charges that Donald Trump is still denying despite having the best intelligence agencies in the world directly reporting to him. Smith’s must-watch commentary also takes aim at Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s disgraceful smiles and laughter while he met with the Saudi royal family and his absurd calls to wait for the Saudis to investigate themselves. Finally, Shep says it is time for the U.S. government and elected officials to stop looking the other way on Saudi Arabia’s atrocious human rights record, its funding of terror, and the somehow forgotten fact that 15 of the 19 hijackers on September 11, 2001, were Saudi citizens.

    “Consolate”? Is that Ariail’s typo, or tRump’s?
