A 23-yet-old woman and her daughters were left terrified after a SWAT team mistakenly raided their home, making her stand naked for 10mins while they searched the home.

Jeb Bush recently told Republicans in Iowa that he was “proud” of his brother’s tough stance on torture following the 9/11 attacks. To me, this is outrageous. This should disqualify Jeb Bush completely from being the commander in chief of our military as well as the President of the United States.
