Biden Bumps Saudi Murderer’s Fist; Trump Takes Saudi Golf Money, Makes Mindless Excuses to 9/11 Families

President Joe Biden went to Saudi Arabia, fist-bumped a murderer, and properly caught heck for such poor optics. But at least the President still called him a murderer while working to advance American interests.

Back home, the guy Biden beat fair and square in 2020 is coddling the Saudis just to make money and making phony excuses to 9/11 victim families about his profiteering:

Dozens of family members and survivors of the Sept. 11 terrorist attack will head to former President Donald Trump’s Bedminster golf club next week to protest the controversial Saudi-backed LIV Golf event there.

Brett Eagleson, a founder of the group 9/11 Justice, told POLITICO the group will hold a press conference on Friday morning down the street from the exclusive club. Trump’s Bedminster is the site of the next big event for the Saudi Arabian-funded golf series.

…Eagleson, whose father, John Bruce Eagleson died in the South Tower on Sept. 11, said a representative for Trump personally called him yesterday in response to a letter his group sent relaying its “deep pain and anger” over the decision to host two different inaugural LIV golf events.

The aide, according to Eagleson, said Trump had read their letter, and told Eagleson “9/11 is really near and dear to him and it’s so important to him he is going to remember everyone who signed the letter and he personally told this individual to reach out.”

But, Eagleson said, it was of “little to no value.”

“My response is, if it was so important to him why did he tell you to call me, why didn’t he call himself?” he added. “[The aide] just kept repeating the same talking points, one being that the contract is binding and there is no way out of it. And when I pressed on when [the contract] was signed, she said she didn’t know and just continued to say that the President was flattered with the letter, which was a weird thing to say, since it was not a very flattering letter. It called him a hypocrite essentially” [Meridith McGraw, “Trump World Reaches Out to 9/11 Families on Eve of Their LIV Golf Protest,” Politico, 2022.07.24].

Get it through your heads, Trumpists: Donald Trump doesn’t care about you, your values, or your country. He cares about himself and his money.

    Bedminster’s getting in the news a lot lately, isn’t it? The grieving (or so they claimed) Trumps buried Ivana at Bedminster, which raises a few questions. Like are they planning to turn into a tourist destination? Graves of the Rich and Famous? That would be even more money in the coffers, because there is no low to which they will not stoop and sink deeper.

    Trump is all about maximizing the grift.

    Why Herr Trump isn’t under house arrest and still has a passport is a mystery dripping with ketchup, for sure.

    They are both gross for that. Trump isn’t surprising because he is so nakedly self interested, but I hope Biden wiped Jamal Khashoggi’s blood off his knuckle after fist pumping the guy who ordered a journalist to be sawed to death. I get it, Covid, but good lord, man.

    It’s all about making money. Pumping more oil is about making money.

    Twice during his failed term, a Bipartisan congress refused to sell weapons to Saudi Arabia but dump sold them anyway, did the sword dance and touched the orb

    LOL, Ivana buried at his golf course. That is way too damn funny. Pretty crass man, what a cheapskate.

    The Sauds sit on top of a virtual sea of oil. It’s shallow and easy to pump. They are also Wahabi, Sunni Muslims who are charged with protecting Mecca from the Shiites and other infidels. They are morally deficient by Western, Judeo-Christian standards. Why we are their partners is strictly about the international ebb and flow of dollars.

    Trump is a creep. He should be laughed off the scene. He should be rocking DOC threads. Trump and Rudy owe those September 11 families much more than a pitiful self-centered memo.

    This video cracks me up. He stole, word for word, Elle Woods’s speech from the movie Legally Blonde. I sht you not. Just like his wife, Melania, stole former FLOTUS, Michelle Obama’s speech.

    The Saudis know that squeezing the gas prices for the soft Americans makes them forget all sins. Again, bad US energy policy forces bad US foreign policy. Ending our oil-driven economy would also mean ending our Mid East kowtowing foreign policy. The Mid East would be as all those other poor nations we ignore.

    Petroleum is a national security threat.

    O–you are correct that our dependence on mid east and Russian oil is a security threat..Saudi oil is plentiful and without the dirt and minerals of Canadian oil sand oil..they don’t have to frack…if prices weren’t fixed, Saudi oil would be a premium product and would be cheaper than most if not all, the other oil sources. After World War I, about 1920, an oil prospector realized that the oil he was looking for was not in the horn of Africa but across the Red Sea in the new Kingdom of the Sauds. He negotiated a drilling contract with the King which awarded the Sauds 5Cents per barrel. The King stipulated that if they ever struck water, he got it all.

    Update: Trump is at Bedminster golfing with his son Eric and talking up this LIV tournament. He is also hosting another Saudi golf league tournament at a trump property in Florida this October.
