9. We're getting to the point that we just blink, and no one even asks-- Huh?

He says, "I took the oil." What oil? Where? What are these troops? What are they doing with the oil? Are they building a pipeline somewhere to take it somewhere else?

The other day he also said that he sent troops to Saudi Arabia for $1billion that was deposited into a bank. What troops? Where are they going? Where's the billion dollars?

Probably this is all his demented fantasy. There are probably no US troops taking oil. There are probably no troops being bought by Saudi Arabia. There is probably no $1b check or bank deposit.

But weirdly, no one seems to be asking about it or commenting on what sounds like some feverish fantasy from a senile guy who's been binge-watching "Jack Ryan." Has anyone seen any article or interview about these "revelations"? Has anyone from Congress asked about it?

I actually hope (I have a child in the military) that it's just we have an insane president who makes these things up in order to sound cool and macho to Laura Ingraham. If these are true, and our young men and women are being put in danger of death to protect Saudi oilfields and be mercenaries for a murderous regime, and NO ONE CARES, that would be even worse.
