While most people were horrified by New York State Senator Greg Ball’s call for torturing Boston Marathon bomb suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, Sean Hannity didn’t have a discouraging word when he hosted Ball last night on Fox’ Hannity show. Ironically, Hannity was talking up “enhanced interrogation” and waterboarding on the very night that marked four years since he had said he’d undergo it for charity (to prove that it’s not torture) and yet hasn’t.
Hannity said, “I don’t believe enhanced interrogation is torture,” before noting that “Ollie North was waterboarded as part of his training." No explanation has to why he has weaseled out of his offer to undergo it himself, with proceeds to go to charity, and prove the point.
Ball boasted about how he had been speaking “from my heart” when he advocated torture as Hannity jumped in to say, “Get the answers! …We need to know what he knows!”
Hannity moved on to complain that Tsarnaev had been Mirandized and that Massachusetts has strict gun laws.
“I’ve got to get out of New York,” Hannity said. “Only seven bullets (are allowed) in my gun. I mean, this city, this state is taking people’s rights away left and right.”
