By now you’ve no doubt heard about the infamous high five between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman at this week’s G20 summit. It was widely interpreted as Donald Trump’s two primary puppet masters celebrating their domination of the United States. Now a different G20 moment is coming into focus, and it involves Donald Trump, Ivanka Trump, and the Crown Prince.

Here’s a cable news screen capture nabbed by political writer Andy Olstoy, which he then posted to Twitter:

Left to right that’s U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, Donald Trump, the back of the Crown Prince’s head, and Ivanka Trump. There are so many questions, we’re not sure to start. First of all, why is Mnuchin so happy to be chit chatting with a murderer? Second, what the hell is Ivanka even doing there? Why is the soon to be indicted daughter of the illegitimate “president” representing the United States in such an official capacity at such a crucial world event?

   

Third, where were Donald Trump’s handlers when this moment was playing out? You’d think there’d be some adult assigned to prevent this kind of embarrassing scene from playing out, considering there was a murderer at this event. Clearly, no one in this photo was doing any handling. This debacle just keeps getting worse.
