Wilbur is surprised! No protests in Saudi??

What a cabinet! Are they so completely ignorant....of everything?
Let's start with Wilbur Ross, Sec of Commerce. Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross marveled Monday morning that there was not even “a single hint or a protester” anywhere in Saudi Arabia during President Donald Trump’s visit there over the weekend, conceding only at a CNBC anchor’s prodding that the lack of unrest could have been due to the Islamic kingdom’s lack of protections for freedom of speech.

“There's no question that they're liberalizing their society,” said Ross, who joined Trump on the Saudi Arabian leg of his first international trip as president. “The other thing that was fascinating to me, there was not a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time we were there. Not one guy with a bad placard.”
Isn't that wonderful? Such a peaceful, respectful country. LOL

WILBUR, you doofus. Saudi Arabia is an absolute monarchy which forbids any political protest or any manifestation of dissent. It is also a police state that beheads opponents. The Saudi government banned all forms of protest in 2011 in the wake of the Arab Spring. In fact, dissidents and activists continue to be jailed and publicly tortured--public floggings, coerced confessions AND executions.

Then we've got Tillerson. It seems Rex *forgot* the American press....completely. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson held a press conference Sunday without U.S. reporters, according to multiple reports.
Tillerson reportedly held the press conference in Riyadh, but U.S. reporters were not told about it. Let me repeat that: U.S. reporters were NOT told about it.
So the president invites the Russians and Russian press, but NOT the U.S. press and NOW, Tillerson leaves the U.S. press out? Great job, guys.

What else?? Oh yeah. There's the whole Israel thingy. Notice anything different about Bibi?? The guy is GIDDY. GIDDY. A perpetual smile carved into his face. Trump makes a stupid statement about "I never mentioned Israel." To whom, Donny? The Russians?

Bibi smiled.

Yup, that liberalized Saudi society. And Bibi is supposed to do something other than kiss the ass of the guy who basically singlehandedly arms them?
Thanks from Clara007

Where did Trump find so many idiots so quickly?
Oh yeah, we're talking about Trump.
