So that’s his evidence that torture works? He FEELS that it works?

Somehow, I trust the word of somebody who has actually been tortured — Senator McCain — over Trump’s “feelings”. Even though I don’t agree with Senator McCain on most issues, I recognize that he’s much more knowledgeable about the effectiveness of torture than Trump is.

In addition to speaking to McCain, I recommend that Trump talk to the people who have actually administered “enhanced interrogation techniques” for our country and find out how much useful and actionable information we obtained through that process. Even Trump’s new Secretary of Defense knows that torture isn’t effective.

I have a feeling that Trump’s “feelings” about torture might have more to do with the need for overcompensation. Tiny hands tend to do that.
