Good old fake news at its best. Just can't stick to the story eh. Always have to put in that negativity that the MSM globalist deep state demands and the "others" eat up like candy.

At least he's in a place where the way he treats his wife is considered normal.

Oh my fizzbit need a tissue there or you want to throw some more fake news out there.

Get out the popcorn, and enjoy the show. One can only imagine what idiocies he will commit in the next nine days.

I just hope he doesn't tell the Saudis that his third favourite book is the Koran.

He's going be soooo jealous of all the autocracy and royal fiat.

Back in the days when there was a president who was presidential, Trump criticized Michelle Obama for not covering her hair when visiting Saudi Arabia and insulting the Saudis. My, my, my. Another 'do as I say, and not as I do' moment. Yes, there are moments when Trump acts as a Reupublican.

The perfect opportunity now exists for not letting him back in to the U.S.

Christ, if you're going to mindlessly spout insulting conspiracy theories, could you at least make the effort to not make them all mutually contradictory?

Hey now, the corporate media may do a lot of things, but they are not guilty of washing people named Brian. Or brains either (unless a person just accepts everything you read and hear without question, but who does that besides the far gone fringe Alex Jones/Don T. types?)

Trump won fair and square despite all the odds stacked against him even by his very own Republican Party itself !

His win was also an unquestionable constitutional victory.

Wondering why some Americans can't respect their own democratic process and ridicule their own president who have just barely warmed his chair in the WH?

Still remember your democracy?

Not sure you get how democracy works. Getting elected doesn't insulate you from scrutiny, criticism or, even, ridicule. And this guy has earned every bit of it. The kicker is it took him no time at all to bring it all on himself... seconds into his inaugural speech.

Don't get angry at me because you can't see the MSM/corporate brianwashing.

What's your purpose with these kinds of posts? Is it to try to educate the benighted MSM slaves? I've heard you cry conspiracy theory at the murder of a British MP before Brexit, then admit you jumped the gun and then claim you didn't know what people were talking about when they brought it up. You also claimed that the contents of the Hamas charter were MSM lies, and then claimed you didn't know what I was talking about when I brought it up.

Sorry to be so direct here but I'm sick of ten-a-penny conspiracy theorists telling people how stupid and ignorant they are.

Enjoy your conspiracy theories, be honest about your mistakes, but please don't act like a crackpot conspiracy theorist crossed with an evangelical Christian looking to bring the good news.

Rep Ted Lieu, one of the greatest Trump trolls ever, gave Trump some advice on his foreign trip:

Don't leak classified information.

Israel = ally

Russia = not ally

G-7 is not a golf reference

DON'T talk about a Muslim ban with the Saudis. Actually, don't talk about banning Muslim ever again.

Head's up for Pope Francis meeting: He knows climate change is real, hates your proposed wall, and is not a fan of locker room talk.

With his inevitable impeachment coming, he may well ask for asylum (both political and mental) in Saudi Arabia! To his supporters: please explain how a real nut job can call the former (and maybe future?) head of the FBI a 'nut job'. Trump will be history soon based on the unprecedented speed and efficiency that he is writing himself off. It's almost like he is doing it on purpose because doesn't actually want the job of POTUS and couldn't believe his fudging of the election would actually work!

Maybe he will stay overseas?

Hey, Trump -- YOUR plane ain't got no ESCALATOR!

For a guy the Left claims hates Muslims, Muslims seem to like him a lot more than Obama.

Right--and you are basing this statement on what evidence?

Huh? I don't remember Saudi ruling family feuding with any US prez. Considering how much time they spend in the US, that would be silly.

Anyway, Russia is projected to be majority Muslim by 2050, so by your logic Trump should be twice as popular there than in the USA with its smaller proportion of Muslims.

aafter 8 years of Obama backing Iran, funding Isis into existing and helping basically tyrants and, enemies, while, damaging relationships, with allies and at least not enemies like, Saudi, it's good trump is getting some of these, alliances back to useful. the "troubles at home" is, all fabricated news, yellow journalism. other than perhaps trump not delivering wow, factor results, quickly, there is no other issue. the faked Russian ties nonsense, is fake, it, was Hillary who had Russian ties. comet is a buffoon, proven by his buffoonery starting in Feb 2016 when announcing a Hillary investigation, letting her off the hook for her felonies, then again just before the election with reopening the case, yet again, when he magically went through 600k emails to let her off the hook again and since a series of statements and claims only a buffoon would make. so his testifying is irrelevant, unless you want entertainment.

What's wrong with Obama backing Iran and hating on our allies? Sometimes shaking things up is good. And a little yellow journalism and propaganda in hopes of supporting the Left has never killed anyone. As for Hillary getting off on felonies, don't you think she's paid enough of a price? She's been dragged through hell for years and years by the Republicans. I think she's served her time and deserves the pardon.

Donny the Elephant packed his trunk

You must have gone to a community college.

Except for the oil and money what else does the House of Saudi have that we would want in the West, nothing and their brand of Islam states wiping out all other forms of religion.

Because Obama NEVER got that treatment from the Saudis and the way they talk about Trump, also as a businessman, they can both help each other. I'm not a huge fan of the Saudis, but they are an instrumental ally in the fight against radical Jihadism.

What's wrong with Obama backing Iran and hating on our allies?

Oh, dunno, maybe that would be the equivalent to Trump helping NK and giving them the keys to go full green on developing a nuclear weapon.

Sometimes shaking things up is good.

You mean, when the Dems do it? I see....

And a little yellow journalism and propaganda in hopes of supporting the Left have never killed anyone. 

Come again?

As for Hillary getting off on felonies, don't you think she's paid enough of a price? 

No, not even close.

She's been dragged through hell for years and years by the Republicans. I think she's served her time and deserves the pardon.

I think she needs to retire entirely in politics and call it quits and take care of her grandkids and build a retirement home somewhere far, far away....Costa Rica perhaps? Personally, I think she would look dashing wearing orange, but that's just my personal opinion.

"Each other" being the key phrase there. The House of Saud helps Donald Trump, Donald Trump helps the House of Saud. Never mind about anyone else.

I'm not a huge fan of the Saudis, but they are an instrumental ally in the fight against radical Jihadism.

Seeing as radical Jihadism largely comes from Saudi Arabia, I wouldn't value their services as allies all that highly. But do carry on over-simplifying everything so that you can find an excuse for just about anything Trump does.

What are you talking about? Without Israel, Jordan and the Saudis, we would have a lot more terror attacks, A LOT MORE.

Ok, that's your belief, I think differently, that's my belief and good on Trump for doing this. Kudos.

Exactly. I was pointing out how your comment is simply speculation and not actually based in any fact. Therefore entirely meaningless.

Ok, I understand and I feel the opposite about your speculative analysis

Israel - an apartheid state with nuclear capability and the use of chemical weapons.

Saudi - world's number one sponsor of international terrorism. 9/11, for instance.

Jordan; limited freedom of press and high levels of corruption.

Ugh.

That's quite alright, we agree to disagree.

Sure, I have no problem with disagreement. I was simply pointing out how what you tried to frame as fact, was simply speculation not based on facts. Of course my speculation is also not based on facts, but I never tried to present it as fact.

See, I knew we can agree on something for once. Kudos
