The shame just keeps on coming, America.
Illegitimate United States President Donald Trump just met with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman at the G-20 in Japan.
During their brief meetup, Trump referred to MBS "a friend of mine," and said the prince blamed for the grisly assassination of Jamal Khashoggi has done "really a spectacular job" and that it's a "great honor" to meet with him.
Bone saws, people.

Reactions from Twitter, below.
Every journalist in America should cover Trump appropriately given the unequivocal knowledge that he would warmly greet someone who murdered you. This is no different than high-fiving Al Qaeda after they murdered Daniel Pearl. https://t.co/2Z9gkUE42S

We've already had to sue the government over Jared Kushner's meeting with the Saudi crown prince. https://t.co/rGIX9CDPzE

Trump lavishes praise on MBS at breakfast, telling him he has done a "spectacular job." He makes no mention of Khashoggi murder, which the US has concluded the crown prince ordered.
