  • “A few weeks ago, The Wall Street Journal reported that MBS ‘mocks President Biden in private, making fun of the 79-year-old’s gaffes and questioning his mental acuity,’ according to people inside the Saudi government. Nothing gets leaked by the Saudi government to The Wall Street Journal without MBS signing off on it, President Biden,” Tapper began.
  • “What are you — what are we — getting in exchange for letting this thug get away with murder, Mr. President?” Tapper asked. “Other than the stink of complicity?”
  • The Washington Post publisher Fred Ryan criticized Biden when the news was first reported, accusing the president of effectively granting bin Salman a “license to kill” in a blistering statement published Friday.
