Right in the middle of his torture, he used his hand with no fingers, and hit one of the 18 torturers. That's our story and we're sticking to it... We also kill our women only when they need it...

The one thing I know is that the only substance that removes blood stains is bleach, and they announced about seeing bleach being hauled in the back door! Can you imagine how much blood there must have been? And Trump wants more "journalists" to travel to Saudi Arabia .... just to see if they, too, might have the same experience? What has Donald J Trump got that prevents the GOP from taking him down? to quote another comment...
