Saudi Prince, Putin Give Highly Visible Greeting, Watch Opposition Media Go Crazy

Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and Russian President Vladimir Putin engaged in a spirited greeting on Saturday which will anger the U.S. media.

I have learned the American media doesn’t like when things are moving along at a pace that shows camaraderie or hope of working together for the common good. I don’t know what is behind this awesome greeting, but it’s great to witness.

Mohammed bin Salman (MBS) is under global scrutiny because of allegations he had something to do with the disappearance and death of “journalist” Jamal Khashoggi. MBS has claimed he had nothing to do with the murder and he was going to work hard to find the killers and bring them to justice.

The U.S. media blames MBS based on intelligence which started off blaming the Saudi Prince for having this heinous crime committed.

Let us not forget how Barack Obama greeted the king of Saudi Arabia with a full bow from the waist, a move one commentator described as a violation of protocol and not worthy of the office he holds.

At a photo call during the official welcome ceremony Friday, Mohammed stood to the far right of the stage on the second row of world leaders. Footage showed the crown prince walking away from the stage as other world leaders, including Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, mingled.

But the crown prince appeared far from isolated. Later, Mohammed sat next to Russian President Vladimir Putin as the G-20 summit began. The two were filmed aggressively shaking hands and laughing as they greeted each other.

A more ambiguous interaction from earlier in the day with French President Emmanuel Macron was also captured on film that was shared by Saudi news outlets. What the two leaders are saying is hard to discern, but at one point Mohammed appears to tell Macron not to worry. “I do worry,” Macron responds.

I think this handshake was throwing dirt in the eye of the Trump opposition media.  Remember, outside of the U.S.; they give news an entirely different way than what we get here which is probably why we do not see a lot of outrage by those in other countries over this photo op.
