Donald Trump appears to 'curtsey' to Saudi king after mocking Barack Obama for bowing

click here

Mod: There are those who have never found it in themselves to forgive Saudi Arabia for the role it played in the 9-11 terrorist attacks in New York. I number among them. And it used to be that Donald Trump would have agreed with me. But as it is with many things concerning the Orange One, that has now radically changed. Here is how the UK news organization The Independent describes his one time animus to the homeland of Osama bin Laden and Al-Qaeda, and what happened there this week.

Donald Trump signs $110 billion arms deal with nation he accused of masterminding 9/11 (The Independent link): Donald Trump has signed the largest arms deal in history with Saudi Arabia despite warnings he could be accused of being complicit in war crimes and after blaming Saudi Arabia himself for producing the terrorists behind 9/11.

The President confirmed he had signed a weapons deal with the Saudis worth $109.7 billion, predicted to grow to a $380 billion Saudi investment within 10 years, during his first trip abroad since his Inauguration.

Mr Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer said the deal was positive news for American employment and the economy.

Yet a February Gallup poll found that Saudi Arabia is one of the least liked countries by Americans, only slightly less than Russia.

The deal would also appear hypocritical after the President publicly accused the Saudis of masterminding the attacks on the Twin Towers in 2001.

After his election, Mr Trump said Saudi Arabia should be banned from exporting oil to the US, and has accused the country of killing gay people and enslaving women.

Mod: As we know, with Trump money changes anything. Even when it comes to America's enemies. As we have all seen with Vladimir Putin and Russian organized crime, apparently for The Donald there is no fanny too evil that he won't kiss for a few bucks. 

Donald Trump appears to 'curtsey' to Saudi king after mocking Barack Obama for bowing (The Independent link): Donald Trump has been accused of hypocrisy after appearing to "curtsey" while receiving a gold medal from the king of Saudi Arabia.

Back in 2012, Mr Trump criticised his predecessor Barack Obama for bowing to foreign leaders, including then-Saudi King Abdullah.

But he bowed his head while receiving the country's highest civilian honor on Saturday, the Collar of King Abdulaziz al-Saud.


After King Salman placed the chain around his neck, the President performed a small dip widely interpreted as a curtsey by observers.

One Twitter user commented: "Unlike Obama, Trump refuses to debase himself by bowing before a king. Diplomat that he is, he deftly opts instead for a half-curtsey."

Outraged conservatives also chastised Mr Obama for bowing to the Saudi king, contending that the leader of the free world must not bend over to foreigners.

Mod: Funny how these "outraged conservatives" are fine and dandy with Trump's degrading and now infamous curtsey. But that's just how things seem to be going these days with many of our leading so-called "patriots."

  2. 5:20A This whole article sickens me. Your comments sicken me. When will your Muslim friends stand up to this kind of violence? And Mr. Mod, if you believe the President bowed you are warped. There is no dialogue here anymore so I'm sure this will not be printed.

  7. Conservative Review: Trump administration sells out America to Saudi Arabia
    https://www.conservativereview.com/articles/trump-administration-sells-out-america-to-saudi-arabia

    This is the title of an article I would have written had a Democrat president engaged in the same obsequious behavior to the Saudis over the weekend. Given that a dignified consistency is indispensable to intellectual honesty, I’m not going to sugar-coat this because there is an alleged Republican in the White House.

    Flanked by his cadre of “shallow state” Democrat advisors – Jared, Ivanka, Gary Cohn, Dina Powell, and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson — Trump gave his supporters a vivid demonstration of exactly what they detested when they screamed “globalist,” “Goldman Sachs,” and “America First” during the election. The crowning achievement of this trip was the signing of a massive arms deal with the Islamic kingdom that Trump once implied was responsible for 9/11. Under the agreement, the Saudi Kingdom will immediately receive $110 billion worth of helicopters, tanks, patrol boats, sophisticated radar technology, and anti-missile systems. An additional $350 billion in economic development over the next ten years is tentatively part of the agreement. To put the enormity of this deal in context, the much hyped “historic” arms deal we signed with Israel last September was worth $38 billion.

An additional $350 billion in economic development over the next ten years is tentatively part of the agreement. Are you saying the United States is paying/giving this to that country or they are approved to buy this equipment. I'm confused.

  9. I detest Trump and all he stands for but I see the bending over from the waist to get low enough so this rediculous metal decoration can be placed over his head (and not muss his hair) as nothing more than that. He looks arthritic as does the man (who can't lift his arms much higher) placing this decor on him. How heavy is that mess anyway? What is observe that no one ever talks about is his vacant stare. Nothing alive behind the eyes. Either that or he does know how all this looks and he is trying to hide in plain sight. His lack of kinesthetic awareness is most apparent when he walks down stairs. Problably petrified of his own shadow. How medicated is he?

    President Trump is a very tall guy. In order to receive the highest honor bestowed upon an American President, the medal awarded to President Trump had to be placed around his neck; unlike when President Obama attempted to kiss the Saudis King butt, and still did not bend low enough to even garner respect.

  26. Notes written at the Yad Vashem Holocaust Museum illustrate the relative complexity of Democratic and Republican thinking:

    “It is a great honor to be here with all of my friends. So amazing and will NEVER FORGET!”

    Donald Trump May 2017

    "I am grateful to Yad Vashem and all those responsible for this remarkable institution. At a time of great peril and promise, war and strife, we are blessed to have such a powerful reminder of man's potential for great evil, but also our capacity to rise up from tragedy and remake our world. Let our children come here, and know this history, so that they can add their voices to proclaim ‘never again.’ And may we remember those who perished, not only as victims, but also as individuals who hoped and loved and dreamed like us, and who have become symbols of the human spirit.”

    Barrack Obama 2008

    "God bless Israel."

    George W. Bush

    “Yad Vashem is a testament to the power of truth in the face of denial, the resilience of the human spirit in the face of despair, the triumph of the Jewish people over murder and destruction and a reminder to all people that the lesson of the Holocaust must never be forgotten. God bless Israel and its future.”
