The Saturday night line and another slice of Trump de ja doo

Here's your open line. For amusement: the  hits just keep on coming from Donald Trump, who  regularly does things he once found objectionable when done by Barack Obama.

Take the Saudi visit. Trump bowed to the Saudi king  (curtsy was how some described the move) to receive a gold medal as a token of appreciation for an American arms deal and, I guess, Trump's proven love of followers of Islam. Trump does love gold and seeing his picture blown up bigly, as the Saudis have done. By the time it's over, one Twitterer observed, he'll be giving the Saudis Rhode Island.

No biggie. But ... the Twitter machine was ready to illustrate Foxocrisy and Trumpocrisy.

2012 for example:

And, you bet, Fox piled on Obama for bowing down to a foreign power. Here's a look back at conservative outrage over Obama in a similar position.

There's a very important difference between Barack Obama and Donald Trump and Trump's followers are canny enough to notice it.
