Surely That $100 Million Payment Was A Coincidence

Saudi Arabia ponying up $100 million on the same day Pompeo landed to get the scoop on Khashoggi was just a big coincidence, right?

Hey guys, remember how Prznint Stupid went to NATO meetings and whinged and moaned about how HE would no longer allow the US to be taken advantage of, and threatened to pull the US out of the Alliance unless the deadbeat ‘peans didn’t pony-up some Ameros to defray the cost of the US protecting those cheese-eating surrender-monkey freeloaders? And unbelievably, he got some concessions, probably just to shut his mango-hued sh*tgibbony pie hole. And then the Ameros never arrived.

Anyway, I mention it only because one of the countries who promised to pay-up more was Saudi Arabia, and in what surely must be a serendipitous coinky-dink, yesterday Prince Bone Saw suddenly coughed up $100M Ameros on the same day Secretary of State Mike Pompeo landed in Riyadh to get some answers on the fate of Jamal Khashoggi.

Shake-down, coinky-dink or conspiracy theory?

Yes.

So if you cannot trust an autocrat like Fratsputin’s pal, Crown Prince Bone Saw, can you really trust anyone?

Brett McGurk, the U.S. envoy to the coalition fighting the Islamic State, told the NYTimes: “The specific transfer of funds has been long in process and has nothing to do with other events or the secretary’s visit,” so QED, haters!
