Donald Trump’s plan to bring back the outlawed torture tactic of waterboarding is no different than hazing in fraternities, one of his sons insisted Monday.
Eric Trump defended his father’s Sunday night statement that he would “bring back a hell of a lot worse than waterboarding” by inexplicably claiming that the banned torture technique is “no different” from the everyday fraternity rituals that routinely equally shock our sensibilities on a routine basis.
“You see these terrorists that are flying planes into buildings, right? You see our cities getting shot up in California. You see Paris getting shot up. And then somebody complains when a terrorist gets waterboarded, which quite frankly is no different than what happens on college campuses and frat houses every day,”
It seems that the silver spoon doesn’t fall far from the custom-made cutlery. We can only hope that Trump’s luck runs out in New Hampshire.
