WASHINGTON President Donald Trump said Tuesday that the effort to conceal the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi at a Saudi consulate in Turkey was the "worst cover-up ever."

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump declined to preview what the U.S. would do in response to Khashoggi's death by Saudi operatives. But he was clear in his view that the operation and its aftermath demonstrated incompetence.

"They had a very bad original concept, it was carried out poorly, and the cover-up was the worst in the history of cover-ups," he said. "They had the worst-cover up ever."

Shortly after Trump spoke, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the U.S. would punish certain Saudis who have been connected to the killing.

1. That's all he's worried about, not a "worst" murder. And he didn't call it a plot or conspiracy....

....he called it a "deal" several times!

Never heard a murder plot a "deal" before.

3. Well, there's murder for hire, but...

I suspect deep in his heart of black hearts he admires killers.

Killers who can get away with it, that is.

8. I saw* that one of the Saudi killers who went to Istanbul was in D.C. in 2017 for ...

... Trump's inauguration so you just know that Trump and company was really gonna crack
down on the Saudis but Saudi Arabia has 10 trillion $ deal to buy weapons from America and
that means 25 million jobs for Americans.



* I read it on the web so it must be true.

9. Trump is right. He's an expert on cover-ups.

They made a huuuuge mistake by not calling tRump for consultation on this cover-up, and so they failed.

Bigly failed.

So now, they'll have to pay him double to advise on how to cover-up the botched cover-up.........

10. A "very bad original concept," Tiny Hands?

Is that Russian for "I know I told them to make it look like the butler did it"?

They fucking MURDERED someone! This isn't some kind of bad reality show, they killed a man Spanish Inquisition style. What is wrong with Donald Trump?

13. The cover-up was half-assed because they really didn't care.

They knew they could get away with it with no consequences, and it sends a louder message to all the other vocal critics than if they just made the journalist quietly disappear.

No, that would be your collusion with Putin to subvert the will of the American people and steal the election, you baby-shit colored, fascist buffoon.

22. Doesn't this qualify as an assassination?

 

Not a cover-up, or a killing, or a murder ??? Medieval cruelty. And the Western press always notes about "women can now drive." Like that's the biggest step of progress into the 20th century thus far...let alone the 21st.

24. If its exposed he knew beforehand the Prince was planning this

Which he probably was told by his intel people before it happened this was going to happen , and he did nothing, could be why he's helping the prince cover up his involvement . He's hiding what and when he knew about this, and he is covering up his involvement also maybe. The only reason he's sent people there is to get their stories and cover up, and excuses straight.

It is painful to watch this empty slug talk about this as if it were just a poorly executed business deal.
