Even Adam Schiff Slams Biden For Fist-Bumping Saudi Crown Prince

Democrat Congressman Adam Schiff (CA) slammed Democrat President Joe Biden for his decision to fist bump Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman earlier in the day.

The Saudi ruler notoriously approved the killing of Saudi journalist Jamal Khashoggi in 2018 and has defended the genocide of Uyghur Muslims in China, saying in 2019 that “China has the right to carry out anti-terrorism and de-extremization work for its national security.”

Schiff responded to the fist bump on Twitter, saying, “If we ever needed a visual reminder of the continuing grip oil-rich autocrats have on U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East, we got it today.”

“One fist bump is worth a thousand words,” Schiff added.

When questioned by a reporter about the controversy caused by the fist bump, Biden laughed and called it a “silly question.”

“You’re coming under a lot of fire for your fist bump with the crown prince,” a reporter said to Biden at a press conference.

Biden started laughing before the reporter could finish her sentence.

“I just want to give you a chance to respond to that,” the reporter continued, “but also how can you be sure that another incident, another murder like Jamal Khashoggi, won’t happen again?”

“God I love you. What a silly question,” Biden answered. “How could I possibly be sure of any of that?”
