41. Fuck me sideways, Emerson can't open his trap without more stupid tumbling out.

Steven Emerson, Fox News pundit and "terrorism expert", has likened listening back to his incorrect comments on Birmingham as "like waterboarding" in another gaffe today.

While speaking on Sky News Mr Emerson apologised for his "inexcusable error" after he described Birmingham as a city that non-Muslims "simply don't go" into, but then caused further controversy by saying "hearing it over when you played it was like waterboarding I guess".

When it was mentioned that some people may find that analogy offenive Mr Emerson replied "I didn't mean to offend anyone...I deserved to have experienced the pain of listening to it over again".
