Trump just curtsied to the Saudi King

Fox News is crowing today that unlike President Obama, Donald Trump did not “bow” to the Saudi King.

And Fox is right.

Trump didn’t bow. He curtsied.

Some conservatives, who are beside themselves that their hero is curtsying like a slave girl to her king, are now claiming the video has been doctored. Here’s CNN’s version:

Reuters has the same video. It’s real.

Mind you, Trump’s odd genuflect to the Saudi king comes after a campaign in which Trump regularly savaged the Saudis as sexist homophobes. Trump did this in an attempt to suggest that Hillary would be too pro-Saudi. Now Trump is curtsying to the Saudi king and signing a new arms deal.

Another broken promise.
