The latest contrived controversy to sweep the nation has been with the Obama administration’s decision to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill, and the timing of it is quite peculiar considering that Obama is in Saudi Arabia right as Congress debates a bill about the nation’s culpability in the 9/11 attacks.

While the results of Obama’s trip remain to be seen, one thing that was missed by the media was how badly he was humiliated by the kingdom as soon as he stepped foot in the country.

Apparently the Saudis aren’t too big of fans of Obama, and it’s hard to blame them after his push for a deal that’s going to end up with one of its adversaries obtaining nuclear weapons.

The government’s disdain was on full display when Air Force One arrived in Riyadh on Wednesday, and a very important political figure decided to snub Obama at his arrival and deny him a photo-op.

While America Distracted Over Harriet Tubman, Check Out How Saudis HUMILIATED Obama

Breitbart News has more:

In May of last year, President Obama invited the leaders of the Arab nations in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) to a meeting at Camp David. Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz al Saud snubbed Obama by not attending the meeting. ( “15-May-15 World View — Obama repudiates the Carter doctrine at bizarre GCC meeting”)

Now King Salman has snubbed Obama once again, this time in an even more embarrassing manner, as Obama arrived in Riyadh on Wednesday on Air Force One. King Salman was not there to greet him. Instead, a lower-level official greeted him. Saudi state television did not show Obama’s arrival live, but did provide live coverage of the arrival of other Gulf nation leaders — being greeted by King Salman.

Relations have been worsening ever since President Obama took office, especially when Obama appeared to throw Hosni Mubarak under the bus during the 2011 Arab Awakening. (See “21-May-11 News — Saudi Arabia advances Gulf Cooperation Council, further cuts U.S. ties.”)

Last year, Obama referred to Saudi Arabia as a “so-called ally,” because of its opposition to the Iran nuclear deal. Recently, the Saudis were deeply offended when Obama characterized some of his allies as “free riders.” ( “15-Mar-16 World View — Saudi’s Prince Faisal sharply rebukes Obama’s ‘free riders’ accusation”)

No one should be surprised at all that the Saudis have snubbed and embarrassed Obama twice in two years. Washington Times and CNN

Hmm, ouch. So much for being the “great uniter,” huh.

But this is what happens when an arrogant first-term senator gets handed the White house and thinks he knows better than everyone else. Perhaps if he spent less time lecturing other nations’ leaders on how to run their countries and more time fulfilling his duties – like defending America and her interests – he’d get a better reception when he arrived in other countries.

After all, this isn’t the first snub he’s received, and it likely won’t be the last. Hell, the same thing happened to him in Cuba too, and that was after he endlessly bragged about his “great” relationship with the communist country.
