The left is very sensitive about Jamal Khashoggi — especially the media.
Khashoggi was a blogger for WAPO and a really controversial character who pushed the political limits in Saudi Arabia.
Many say he was engaged in dangerous politics, by playing “both sides” and making enemies of powerful people in his country.
Eventually, Khashoggi was tortured and murdered, reportedly by the order of the Saudi Crown Prince, MBS.
This happened back when President Trump was in office, and the media went CRAZY over the murder and wanted Trump to go to war over it, which obviously, he wouldn’t do.
So, when Biden was installed, he vowed he would hold the Saudis responsible for Khashoggi’s murder, like the “pariahs” they are, and bla bla bla.
Well, cut to Biden’s trip to Saudi Arabia, to beg for oil, and what’s the first thing he does?
He “fist bumps” the Saudi Prince.

The left was furious. They came unglued…
Here are comments on the fist bump:
“Also important to note that whether it’s a fist bump or a handshake, MBS still gets what he’s longed for: a very public display of validation by the leader of the free world.”
“The MBS fist bump and Brittney Griner situation both highlight the same issue Biden is impotent on the world stage and no one has any respect for America under his regime This is why the regime focuses on domestic dissidents so much. It’s the only people they can control.”
“Yes, it’s a fist bump rather than a handshake. BUT Biden still fist-bumped the man who ordered the murder — and bone-saw dismemberment — of a U.S. journalist, after refusing to say if he would directly confront MBS on Jamal Khashoggi’s murder.”
**Khashoggi was a US resident, not a citizen, just to be clear**
So, to do “damage control” Biden claimed he got “tough” with MBS, and called him out for the murder of Khashoggi.
Biden says he raised Jamal Khashoggi's murder with Crown Prime Mohammed bin Salman during his visit to Saudi Arabia today.
"He basically said that he was not personally responsible for it. I indicated I thought he was."

But one top Saudi official says that never happened. He says he never heard Joe call out MBS for murdering Khashoggi.
Here’s what Fox News reporter Jacqui Heinrich said: “NEW: After POTUS departed Saudi Arabia on AF1, Saudi FM Adel al-Jubeir called my colleague @AlexHoganTV back for a 2nd interview – even though Fox interviewed him yday. He pointedly claimed he “did not hear” Biden tell MBS he believed he was responsible for Khashoggi’s murder”

Biden was asked about this discrepancy and claims the Saudi Foreign Minister is lying.
Sure, Joe, sure…
Here’s what he said to reporters: “Biden, when asked if the Saudi foreign minister who said he didn’t hear him accuse the crown prince of Khashoggi’s murder was telling the truth, says, “No.” Asked if he regrets the fist bump, Biden says, “Why don’t you guys talk about something that matters?“

Give me a break, of course, Biden is lying. This man has no backbone, whatsoever.
He’s compromised on every level and is owned by every foreign leader, thanks to his perverted crackhead son, and the shady Biden family business dealings.
Yes, Joe lied about “talking tough” to MBS.
That never happened, and we all know it.
Anyone who believes otherwise, also probably believes Joe Biden won 81 million LEGAL votes, too.
