Yemeni children considered covering themselves in oil? Lee Camp bashes US reactions to Saudi refinery attacks & Yemen bombings

Yemeni children considered covering themselves in oil? Lee Camp bashes US reactions to Saudi refinery attacks & Yemen bombings
Washington and Riyadh were quick to blame Tehran for attacks on Saudi oil facilities. Despite the lack of proof and history of lies told by the accusers, the US media eagerly took their claims at face value, Lee Camp says.

Last weekend’s attacks were claimed by the Yemeni Houthi rebels, but the US and Saudi Arabia accused Iran instead, providing the charred remains of supposed Iranian weaponry and vague allegations as proof. 

Despite painting Donald Trump as a habitual liar for years, his accusations against Iran appear to be A-OK for the mainstream media, the host of comedy show Redacted Tonight said. The same lack of skepticism extends to the Saudis, who denied being responsible for the disappearance of Jamal Khashoggi, and then admitted to dismembering him just a bit at their consulate.

“You mean the murderous horrible regime of Saudi Arabia has a reason to lie? And the murderous horrible regime of Donald Trump has reason to lie?” Camp said. “MSNBC wants you to believe Trump is a habitual liar unless he’s saying something we want him to.”

 When it comes to starting wars with countries we’ve been trying to destroy for decades, [Trump] never tells a lie. 

Moreover, it’s Saudi oil that was hurt, not Yemeni children who have been bombed by the Saudis for years with US-made munitions. Oil makes the MSM truly care, Camp said, adding that the Yemenis should try “covering themselves in oil” to finally be noticed by the media.
