Wilber Ross protests his ignorance of Saudi Arabia



“Though Ross was photographed nodding off during Trump’s speech in Riyadh, the commerce secretary was all bubbly about the presidential visit to the Middle Eastern monarchy. ‘[The] thing that was fascinating to me was there was not a single hint of a protester anywhere there during the whole time we were there,’ Ross told a global audience on CNBC. ‘Not one guy with a bad placard…’CNBC host Becky Quick interrupted with a polite reservation. ‘But Secretary Ross, that may not necessarily be because they don’t have those feelings there, but because they control people and don’t allow them to comment and express their feelings quite the same as we do here.'”    [thenation.com]


Wilber Ross doesn’t like you, protesters.

Like flies you’re annoying infesters.

But he likes the extreme

Autocratic regime

Of the Saudis, our friends and investors.

  • Thank you for drawing attention to the lack of protestors. That, as a friend of ours once wrote, was the curious incident.
