    NEWSLETTERS

    Donald Trump praised former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein Tuesday night, allowing that he was a "really bad guy" but had redeeming qualities when it came to his handling of terrorists, NBC News reported. 

    Trump lauded the former U.S. adversary for how "well" he killed terrorists, recalling that he "didn't read them the rights, they didn't talk. They were terrorists, over." Now, Trump assessed, "Iraq is Harvard for terrorism. You want to be a terrorist, you go to Iraq."

    Hillary Clinton's campaign seized the opportunity to once more paint Trump as unfit for office.

    This isn't the first time Trump has cast the brutal dictator in a positive light. Throughout the primaries Trump glossed over Hussein's violent history in favor of what he viewed as a more stable Middle East ruled by Saddam's viciousness.

    A Huntington Beach man has set a record for most consecutive visits to Disneyland. Jeff Reitz, 44, has visited the park 2,000 times in a row. Reitz started visiting the park every day when he was unemployed and wanted to keep his spirits up. Employed at the VA now, Reitz continues to visit every day after work because it helps him to decompress after a long day. His favorite ride is the Matterhorn Bobsleds, which he first rode with his mom when he was 2 years old.
