The Bold and the Beautiful

By Bill Maher

Two of the adult daughters of King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, Princesses Sahar and Jawaher, gave an interview to British television (via Skype) where they complained that their father has been keeping them “hostage” for the last 13 years. They even took a video camera around their compound and showed how the gate is locked from the outside. Does that take balls, or does that take balls?

They’re both pissed that Obama met with their horrible daddy. “Any leader meeting with the King or any Saudi official is responsible for what is happening in Saudi Arabia,” Jawaher said. 

So far there’s been no mention of their plight from the White House. I guess maintaining good relations with our favorite medieval kingdom is more important than telling the King, “Why don’t you let your kids out of the house?”
