Last Saturday, Donald Trump said that he’d bring back “a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding” if he were to become president of the United States. On Monday, Trump’s son Eric said that waterboarding isn’t so bad because it’s a time-honored component of fraternity hazing.
On Greta Van Susteran’s Fox News show, Eric Trump justified his dad’s comments by describing how vicious terrorists are. “You see these terrorists that are flying planes into buildings,” he said. “You see our cities getting shot up in California. You see Paris getting shot up.”
Waterboarding is therefore nothing to them: “And then somebody complains when a terrorist gets waterboarded, which quite frankly is no different than what happens on college campuses in frat houses everyday.”
I guess Eric agrees that people who criticize waterboarding are just like a certain part of the female anatomy that is known for its cowardice.
And just in case you were in doubt about how strong Donald Trump is, Eric is here to remind you: “The man would keep this country safe. There’s no question about it. He’s got amazing backbone, he’s a tough guy, he’s sick of the nonsense, and he wants to protect this country.”
