The POTUS also saw the opportunity to attack a woman and couldn’t pass it up, slamming comedian Michelle Wolf:

In case you haven’t been following the news, the CIA determined the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia had ordered the assassination and dismemberment of Washington Post journalist and U.S. resident Jamal Khashoggi.
Trump’s response had been evasive until yesterday when he said outright he stands with Saudi Arabia.
