It wasn’t all bad, the fellas had delicious Elk Tacos after the Waterboarding
How did you spend your Friday? Long day at the office? Maybe a hike ahead of your Mother’s Day buffet on Sunday? Well, Tim Kennedy and his buddies decided to Waterboard each other as a show of support for Trump’s pick to lead the CIA, Gina Haspel. She’s come under fire for using torture including waterboarding.
We did this yesterday for almost 45 minutes. The average pour was anywhere from 10 to 60 sec. You can try to hold your breath but the water pools at the back of your sinuses running down your eyes and nose. Plain and simple. It’s not torture. #CIA #GinaHaspel #waterboarding pic.twitter.com/XtFLYoUgsw

I mean, I get what they are trying to convey, but it sounds like torture to me. Listen to Tim’s own explanation of the experience of being waterboarded by friends in a controlled atmosphere.
“They wouldn’t tell me when they were going to put the towel on they would just smash it on my face and start pouring. You can’t hold your breath while they do it because the water runs down your sinuses. The water run through your eyes, down your nose, and pools at the back of your throat.”
That sounds all kinds of horrible. Then again, I am nowhere near as tough as Tim Kennedy. I spent my Friday writing a few articles and going for a nice walk at the local outlet mall. I had ice cream. So yeah, we are almost the same person.
