U.S. President Joe Biden took a tour of humiliation in Saudi Arabia on Friday, as part of a a Middle East trip that had earlier included stops with Israeli and Palestinian leaders.

Amid the backdrop of the president pleading with the Saudis to increase their oil production, Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al Saud, also known as MBS, laughed at Biden to his face.


“President Biden, is Saudi Arabia still a pariah?” a reporter shouted as MBS bore a smug grin.

The reporter was escorted out of the room, President Biden and the Saudi Crown Prince ignored the reporter’s question.

Biden dismissed a reporter’s question after the meeting that he was under “a lot of fire” for greeting Saudi Arabia’s Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman with a fist-bump and dismissed questions about the potential of another murder like Jamal Khashoggi’s.

“What a silly question,” Biden said to reporters. “How could I possibly be sure of any of that?”

I just made it clear if anything occurs like that again there, get that response and much more,” he added.

The Washington Post, whose journalist Jamal Khashoggi was allegedly assassinated by MBS, did not fail to note the symbolism.
