Putin’s High-Five of Saudi Crown Prince Goes Viral: Russian President Vladimir Putin raised plenty of eyebrows at the G20 summit in Argentina, after he greeted Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman with a big high-five and a warm smile - a gesture which many described as “simply chilling,” considering both men stand accused of ordering the murder of journalists.
Good grief, these two characters kind of remind me of two high school athletes, bragging in the cafeteria about their macho exploits with the same cheerleader - and of course that cheerleader is none other than one Donald J. Trump. Then, we suddenly find poor Donald wandering into the cafeteria - looking like a lost school kid and wondering if he’ll ever be invited to get to sit at the "cool dictators' table.”
But all that aside, what could be more touching than watching two brutal dictators admiring each other’s work? Ah yes, we’ve got Putin’s handiwork in the Ukraine and Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s slaughter in Yemen. Say what you will, but in my humble opinion, nothing seems to bring dictators together during the holidays like murdering rivals, journalists and dissidents. Happy Holidays Planet Earth - 2018!
