Trump Under Fire After Son Says THIS

Trump Under Fire After Son Says THIS

Trump has pledged in front of America that if he becomes President, he is going to bring waterboarding back, and in fact warned terrorists that it would a hell of a lot worse than that too. It may sound a bit shocking to hear that from a potential President of the United States, but his Son Eric Trump in a recent interview helps to shed some light on the matter, and it’s making a lot more sense….

Eric Trump went on Fox News Monday night and put the candidate’s comments into a whole new light.

“You see these terrorists that are flying planes into buildings, right?” Trump the Younger asked Greta Van Susteren. “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.”

Perhaps what we’re dealing with here isn’t a nation slouching toward barbarity, but merely a misunderstanding: If Eric Trump thinks waterboarding happens on college campuses every day, surely he and his father are just confused about the meaning of that word. Maybe the Trumps think that waterboarding is basically synonymous with funneling beer?

As tempting as this interpretation may be, there is some evidence that “enhanced interrogation techniques” are actually, regularly deployed on college campuses. As Gawker notes, a fraternity at the University of Houston was believed to have been suspended after waterboarding its pledges with alcohol last year. In 2012, the New York Times reported that students at Binghamton University were also “hazed” via that internationally outlawed form of torture.

It’d be comforting to think that Eric Trump is deluded about what goes on at our institutions of higher learning. But it’s also possible that growing up in the Donald’s shadow made the Georgetown graduate uniquely aware of all the darkness in this world.

Torturing people is hard for most to think about us doing to terrorists and the like. But, there is right and there is wrong…there is good and evil. The line between them can not be blurred by thoughts suggesting that waterboarding is too harsh… because it is better for one evil man to suffer, than for 100 of good men to fall at the hands of his wickedness.
