Trump: Women to be Punished for Abortions
by Deacon Blues
I'm starting to believe an emerging narrative that Donald Trump never thought he'd be the GOP frontrunner/nominee. I say that because lately he's doing everything he can to demonstrate how unprepared he is to be a nominee, let alone a president.
Last night, he backtracks and says he no longer commits to supporting the GOP nominee.
Then today, he gets in over his head with Chris Matthews and states that women should get their abortions from illegal places, and then should be punished for doing so.
"I am pro-life," Mr. Trump said after a few attempts. Asked how an abortion ban would be put in place, he said, "You go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places. But you have to ban it."
Finally, Mr. Matthews asked Mr. Trump, "You’re about to be chief executive of the United States. Do you believe in punishment for abortion, yes or no?"
Mr. Trump responded: "The answer is there has to be some form of punishment."
These are the signs of a man who never thought he would be in this position, and who now is on the verge of destroying one of our two political parties.
Update: Trump now wants to criminalize the doctors.
What a f*cking boob. I think that (finally) Trump's fifteen minutes are about up, but the GOP has nowhere else to go. What are they going to do: nominate Ted Cruz? (laughter abounds)
