The Russian Usurper Gives Us Gas

More Exciting News From Trump HQ!

We present the following Tweet, your Honors:

And, BOOM!

Saudi Arabia later acknowledged a call had taken place between the two leaders, but did not mention any production targets.

And then, amazingly, the Administration walked it back:

The White House late Saturday issued a statement backing down from Donald Trump’s earlier tweet indicating that he had convinced Saudi Arabia’s king to produce as much as 2 million barrels of additional oil a day to bring prices down.

The White House statement said instead that while King Salman bin Abdulaziz confirmed his country has the extra production capacity, the Saudis will “prudently” use it “if and when necessary to ensure market balance and stability, and in coordination with its producer partners, to respond to any eventuality.”

    Tiny “Hands” Don seems to think that everyone is a lying rat bastard willing to screw anyone, anytime, in anything.

    I’m very glad other world leaders are mature adults, and that our military is not staffed with mindless robots.
