(Newser) – Sen. Rand Paul unloaded Sunday on Saudi Arabia and said the nation's leader should be shown the exit door, per Fox News. "I think it's insulting to anyone who’s analyzing this with any kind of intelligent background to think that, oh, a fistfight led to a dismemberment with a bone saw," he said on Fox News Sunday of Saudi Arabia's explanation that late journalist Jamal Khashoggi died in a fistfight gone wrong. Calling Saudi Arabia "the largest state sponsor of radical Islam and violent jihad," Paul aimed his ire at Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman: "... I think we cannot continue to have relations with him. And so I think he's gonna have to be replaced, frankly." For more around the Sunday dial:
