Global thug Trump bullies the Middle East’s hoodlum*


CARTOON/Carlos Latuff/Mondoweiss

it’s an open secret that the US protects Saudi royal asses
as Trump leaked that secret while speaking to his masses

“We protect Saudi Arabia[‘s kingdom]. Would you say they’re rich?
And I love the king, King Salman.” But I can also anytime him ditch

he also boasted: “But I said ‘King – we’re protecting you –
you might not be there for two weeks without us …'” so true

then, as a third rate street bully, Trump demanded without tact
“‘you have to pay for your military,'” forgetting the US/Saudi pact

Trump says US provides security to “many of these nations,” free
in return, they rip us up with “high oil prices,” idiots they think are we

“Not good. We want them to stop raising prices,” I really mean it
“we want them to start lowering prices,” real low, not just a whit

Trump’s personal/public policy is simple: mine is mine, yours is mine, too
I set price for goods I sell, but I also fix prices of things you sell, ooh

Trump, a born liar. lied; the US doesn’t give anything without a price
US protected the Saudi family, but not without having extracted a huge slice.

King Salman Al Saud suffers from dementia and is a king just in name
power is with Prince Muhammad bin Salman who is the authoritarian flame

MBS, for short, extracted millions/billions from relatives/others by force
by terming it a fight against “corruption,” he took this illegal course

most of the princes, officials, and others are corrupt in the Kingdom
and most corrupt of them all is MBS, crown prince of the Saudi fiefdom

MBS, the regional hoodlum, bombs Yemenis causing destruction and death
he terrorizes his own population and acts in the manner of the god Seth

MBS has imposed embargo against Qatar cutting off its only land access
while joining US/Israel to ruin Iran and raise Palestinian misery and stress

he flared up on Canada’s charges of human rights abuses under his rule
so the ambassador was expelled, students recalled, trade stopped by this fool

Trump humiliates his father but MBS accepts it as friendly thing though bad
this bastard lacks guts and zeal to bravely face the global thug … so sad

*Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud suffers from pre-dementia and so his son Prince Muhammad bin Salman, known as MBS, runs the domestic and foreign policies; he is the de facto ruler. In the above cartoon by Carlos Latuff, one of the best political cartoonists, MBS is portrayed as Donald Trump and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s puppet.
