Donald Trump says he didn’t come to Saudi Arabia to “lecture” or tell them “how to live.” He just wants “to conquer extremism and vankish the forshes.”
Seriously. First Donald Trump got laughed off the Internet for not bowing but curtseying to the Saudi King.

Then he signed some “tremendous deals” with Saudi Arabia that include $110 billion in U.S. arms sales to the Sharia Law state with help from his son-in-law Jared Kushner. Because, of course, it’s all about defending our ill-begotten oil supplies.
The Washington Post reports:
While initial details were scant, the agreements signed included a U.S. letter of intent to “support Saudi Arabia’s defense needs” with sales of a number of items — naval ships, tanks and other vehicles — that were the subject of agreements under earlier administrations, as well as some new items that had never passed the discussion stage, such as sophisticated THAAD missile defense systems.
Then, on Saturday morning, an oddly subdued Donald Trump gave a half-hour-long speech to leaders of the Muslim world. His staff must have dosed him liberally with tranquilizers because he spoke so slowly and deliberately, he looked and sounded “presidential” to the point of seeming borderline catatonic.
RIYADH, Saudi Arabia — President Donald Trump offered a message of unity Sunday as he called on the Arab world to confront extremism during a highly anticipated speech in the birthplace of Islam.
From the capital of the country that provided 15 of the 19 terrorists involved in the 9/11 attacks, the not-my-president declared:
“A better future is only possible if your nations drive out the terrorists and extremists…Drive. Them. Out. Drive them out of your places of worship, Drive them out of your communities. Drive them out of your holy land, and drive them out of his Earth!”
As if that will ever happen. Donald Trump then continued:
“We are not here to lecture. We are not here to tell other people how to live, what to do, who to be, or how to worship. Instead, we are here to offer partnership based on shared interest and values […] But above all, we must be united in pursuing the one goal that transcends every consideration.”
But around the 8:14 mark of the video, things get really weird. Liberal blogger and astute twitizen John Prager caught a stunning snippet in which Mein Trumpf’s tang got toungled.
“That goal is to meet history’s great tests. To conquer extremism. And vankish the forshes that terrorism brings with it every single time. “
That’s right. He said “vankish the forshes’ and here’s the video to prove it.
