  1. Just one more disappearance necessary! New crown prince? When was the last time that happened? 2017, ok. No great shock, no great loss!

  2. He's going mark my words. The Saudis own Trump (Mrs. Putin) because she lies for them to the world. It's because she lies all the time that they like her and she likes them because of their money. She's a pig in orange human skin. This is a global disgrace for the US. I'm Canadian and the optics around the world is so bad and for Trump (Mrs. Putin) it's just another day at the WH.
