Today Completes Seven Years Since Sean Hannity Promised To Undergo Waterboarding For Charity


On April 22, 2009, Sean Hannity offered to undergo waterboarding for charity as proof that it's not torture. Yet Hanniity, who loves the thought of waterboarding others, has yet to fulfill that pledge.

On April 22, 2009, Hannity was challenged about his "fascist mentality" by actor Charles Grodin and his insistence that waterboarding is just dunking.

GRODIN: Would you consent to be waterboarded? We can waterboard you?


GRODIN: Are you busy on Sunday?

HANNITY: I’ll do it for charity. I’ll let you do it. I’ll do it for the troops’ families.

Keith Olbermann responded by offering $1,000 for every second Hannity lasted. "We'll see if he's anything but a gasbag," Olbermann said.

Well, after seven years, I think we can definitively say he's a gasbag.You can email Hannity via his website or tweet him @SeanHannity and let him know that he may want to forget his promise to prove waterboarding is not torture but we won’t!

Watch the video above showing Hannity’s promise to undergo waterboarding and Olbermann's dare.
