Fox Business host Eric Bolling cheerily read off a list of people his viewers wanted waterboarded--including several media figures and President Obama--on his Wednesday show.
Bolling asserted definitively that the intelligence that led to the killing of Osama Bin Laden "was gotten through waterboarding, simple as that." (This viewpoint has been repeatedly refuted.) Then he said he had asked his viewers to send in recommendations for people they'd like to see waterboarded. The responses included Joy Behar, President Obama, Senate Democrats, "my ex-wife" (Bolling joked that the viewer was "sentimental"), Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow.
One of Bolling's guests told him that he was "recommending torture," but Bolling did not seem too troubled by the accusation. On the same show, he called waterboarding "a typical weekend at my house with my 12-year-old son."
