Conservative radio host Erich “Mancow” Muller has been one of the loudest voices denying that waterboading is torture. Like Sean Hannity (who said that he would allow himself to be waterboarded), Muller volunteered for a session to prove the point. Unlike Hannity, Muller fulfilled his commitment. As shown on the video below, in a few seconds, Muller went through the full range of Kübler-Ross of torture from denial to acceptance.
Mancow quickly learning what various courts have found for many decades: waterboarding is torture:
“It is way worse than I thought it would be, and that’s no joke. It is such an odd feeling to have water poured down your nose with your head back… It was instantaneous… and I don’t want to say this: absolutely torture. I wanted to prove it wasn’t torture. They cut off our heads, we put water on their face… I got voted to do this but I really thought ‘I’m going to laugh this off.'”
