President Donald Trump expressed doubt regarding the Central Intelligence Agency’s conclusion that Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman ordered the brutal killing of Washington Post reporter Jamal Khashoggi. The statement led to national outcry, with Americans everywhere decrying Trump for being soft on Saudi Arabia, indicating with inaction just how little the sanctity of a free press means to him.

While many lawmakers on both sides of the aisle expressed reactions ranging from dismay to disgust, most of the criticisms were restrained—except for one.

Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) left no room for doubt on her feelings regarding the matter.

While political figures who aren’t the president typically aren’t wont to use such candid language, many on Twitter thought Gabbard’s statement was spot on.

Though some confused Gabbard’s bluntness for tactlessness, her sentiments were generally the same as even many Republican lawmakers: Letting Saudi Arabia get away with entrapment and murder gave the regime all the power and tarnished the integrity of the United States.

Trump’s weakness comes just before a crucial moment with Saudi Arabia.
