Recent reports claim that the crown prince Mohammed bin Salman of Saudi Arabia and members of its Saudi government mock American President Joe Biden. They question his ability to reason and mental clarity. The report follows Biden’s recent trip to the region in July, when the U.S. president pressed the Saudis for more oil production, but the Saudi government refused his requests.
Report Says Fist-Bumping Biden Privately Mocked by Members of the Saudi Government, Saudi Television Broadcast Makes Fun of ‘Sleepy Joe’
Saudi Arabia’s government doesn’t seem to like U.S. president Joe Biden, as a report from the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) shows crown prince Mohammed bin Salman and many others have mocked the American leader. On a broadcast in Saudi Arabia, Biden and Kamala Harris were mocked. The Saudi television broadcast openly mocks Biden’s alleged cognitive decline and leverages the nickname “Sleepy Joe.”
Three reporters from the WSJ — Stephen Kalin, Summer Said, and Dion Nissenbaum — wrote on October 24, that unnamed members of the Saudi government say the prince and his team privately make fun of president Biden. “Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman, the kingdom’s 37-year-old day-to-day ruler, mocks president Biden in private, making fun of the 79-year-old’s gaffes and questioning his mental acuity, according to people inside the Saudi government,” the WSJ reporters said.
He has told advisers he hasn’t been impressed with Mr. Biden since his days as vice president, and much preferred former President Donald Trump, the people said.
The latest news report from the WSJ and the Saudi television broadcast openly mocking Biden follows Saudi Arabia’s request to join the BRICS nations. American President Joe Biden, who visited Saudi Arabia as part of his request to the Crown Prince to boost oil production in July was widely criticized. Reports noted that the Saudi government was not impressed by Biden because he wouldn’t shake the crown prince’s hand.
Biden instead chose to use a pandemic-inspiring fist bump. While the U.S. President begged for increased oil production, he kept mentioning the murder of Jamal Khashoggi, Washington Post journalist. “I made my view crystal-clear,” Biden said at the time. “I said, very straightforwardly, for an American president to be silent on an issue of human rights is inconsistent with who we are and who I am.”
The crown prince of Saudi Arabia and the government flat-out refused Biden’s requests for more oil production. Saudi Arabia actually revealed a decrease in oil production and the Saudi government was very kind to the BRICS members.
On October 24, when the White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre (KJP) was asked about the Saudi rulers privately making fun of the U.S. president’s mental acuity, KJP had nothing to say. “I don’t have any comments,” the White House press secretary repliedTo the reporter
