CNN’s Jake Tapper didn’t go light on President Joe Biden on Sunday morning, telling his audience that the president is choosing to let Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman “get away with murder” after his administration said it determined that the prince is immune from legal ramifications over the murder of Jamal Khashoggi.

It was reported late last week that the Justice Department came to a conclusion that a lawsuit the wife of Khashoggi wants to bring against the prince is inadmissible because he is immune from any responsibility for the killing.

In the past – most prominently during his 2020 presidential campaign – Biden vowed to make bin Salman a “pariah” on the world stage, and promised that “we are going to, in fact, make them pay the price.”

However, as Tapper notes, Biden wound up bending the knee to the Saudis, approving new arms sales, having friendly meetings with the Crown Prince, and holding negotiations with the country over gas prices – all with terrible results.

“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 said.

“What are you — what are we — getting in exchange for letting this thug get away with murder, Mr. President? Other than the stink of complicity?”

  1. Tapwater is right for once.
    Interesting that the Biden/Gillabrand FBI is petrified of entering Saudi Arabia to investigate this reporters assassination but yet they have no problem illegally entering the sovereign state of Israel to “investigate” the IDF. The sanctimonious hypocritical democrat party is the root of all evil.

  2. Many dozens of American citizens, including children, have been killed and maimed in Israel by Palestinian terrorists with the approval and/or support of the PA, but the American media and government have nothing to say about that. Only the killing of this terrorist-supporting journalist is is a moral outrage.
    Spare me the hypocrisy.

  3. Who cares what Jake the ripper from opinion section of media says. ?
    He divided the country when trump was elected president and was passing gas from his upper extremities.
    Not worthy of YESHIVA news
