Saudi regime and the Trump victory: royals orders were received

It was instantaneous.  All Saudi regime journalists (who work per orders, of course) were active supporters of Hillary and wrote nasty articles about Trump and mocked sexistly his wife.  Within hours only of Trump victory, the orientation of coverage changed.  Ash-Sharq Al-Awsat (the mouthpiece of King Salman) was the first to register the new orders and its former editor-in-chief (and the first manager of Al-Arabiyya TV channel) wrote an article defending Trump, after he had attacked him in the past.  The coverage changed the next day.
