Danged if Hillary isn’t trying to have it both ways. She has been criticized far and wide, including from Bernie’s campaign, for taking money from Saudi Arabia and other countries. Then for favors and never complaining about the treatment of people in those countries.
Well, she tried to pivot to criticize them now. That was on Tuesday. Soon thereafter, the Saudi’s issued a stern smack down to Hillary. Other countries like Qatar and Kuwait followed suit with their criticism toward Clinton.
“The Orlando terrorist may be dead but the virus that poisoned his mind remains very much alive. And we must attack it,” said Clinton.
The Saudis, Qataris, and Kuwaitis also donated millions of dollars to the Clinton Foundation.
Saudi Arabia: $11-30 million
Qatar: $1-5 million
Kuwait: $5-10 million
It’s not nice to criticize the hand that’s been feeding the Clinton machine.

Oh, Hillary, you certainly got their back up.
Saudi Arabia and Kuwait have piled on outrage after Hillary Clinton condemned the weekend slaughter in Orlando and directly linked the oil-rich monarchies to the funding of terrorism.

The diplomatic stoush follows the rampage that killed 49 in a gay nightclub and a call by gunman Omar Mateen to emergency services where he pledged allegiance to Islamic State. …/

Here is the letter from Saudi Arabia disagreeing and taking issue with her criticism. (but you are a little late to the party anyway, Hillary — after you lined the Clinton pockets) See the article for other responses. Poor Hillary, feel the wrath.
Well, Hillary when you piss them off I am sure you will be doing damage control, as will Obama. But then you never knew that, did you? There is a lot of stuff in that letter.
