President Donald Trump talked to reporters today about his phone conversation with Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz, during which the two despots discussed the disappearance and apparent killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.
The man is nothing if not consistent.
First, Trump pointed out the fact that King Abdulaziz told him Khashoggi was a Saudi citizen, as in, not a U.S. citizen, so the man's death doesn't matter that much.
Remaining loyal to his family's business interests with Saudi financiers, President Donald Trump also said “rogue killers” may have murdered Jamal Khashoggi, definitely probably not the government of Saudi Arabia, nope, because the Saudi king personally told him so.
“His denial to me could not have been stronger,” said the President of his conversation with King Salman bin Abdulaziz.
Funny, that's the exact same thing he said about his chat with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the 2015 U.S. election “meddling.” Putin denied it, and what he says must be true.
“We are going to leave nothing uncovered,” Trump today said of his conversation with the Saudi King.
It's almost as if there is a pattern.
How did these rogue killers get into the highly secure Saudi embassy in Istanbul? Can't wait for the Trump investigation to reveal all.

For musicians, clubgoers or anyone in the thick of a loud environment, earplugs aren’t just an option. If you plan on keeping your hearing through sustained exposure to levels over 85 decibels (roughly the sound of a blender), they’re a must. The good news is, most earplugs will muffle the sound. The bad news is, […]
Seasoned chefs have a bit of a love-hate relationship with their cutlery. A really good set of knives has to prove its worth by being put through the wringer – and if they’re really good, they’ll still look great afterward. So it is with the Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set. Sitting in […]
