Donald Trump continued his rampage, adding to the list of people he has alienated, like Muslims, the disabled, the Pope, the media, journalists, and every other candidate running for office.
It's not a secret that he's treated women badly, but today he ramped up the attacks to fever pitch. First, Trump declared that he'd send women back to back-alley abortionists.
“I am pro-life," Trump declared. "You go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places but we have to ban it." So make it illegal and then what's next?
Trump has decided to threaten to PUNISH women who have abortions. Yes, you read that right. Women that have abortions, a right legally granted to them through the monumental Supreme Court ruling in Roe v. Wade, will be thrown out the window, because he will outlaw them as Dictator of the World.
Trump disclosed this bombshell during a pre-interview with Chris Matthews ahead of his town hall to be broadcast tonight. Here is some of the transcript:
Matthews: “Should abortion be punished? This is not something you can dodge.”
Trump: “Look, people in certain parts of the Republican Party, conservative Republicans, would say, ‘Yes, it should’”
Matthews:“How about you?”
Trump: “I would say it’s a very serious problem and it’s a problem we have to decide on. Are you going to send them to jail?”
Matthews: “I’m asking you”
Trump: “I am pro-life...you go back to a position like they had where they would perhaps go to illegal places but we have to ban it. There has to be some form of punishment”
Matthews: “For the woman?”
Trump: “Yeah...[the type of punishment would] “have to be determined.”
So this homophobic sexist troll talks at a 4th grade level as an egotistical, sociopatic bully who wants to reverse a Supreme Court ruling granting women the right to seek health care and make reproductive decisions regarding their own body? Not only that, but he has declared that he will "punish" any woman who gets an abortion because he now owns their own bodies?
Not only does he have no idea how the world works, how to run a company without massive start up capital from his father, answer a question directly, run an honest campaign or fix his mismatched concealer/foundation oompa-loompa situation, but now he wants to somehow take over running my uterus in addition to every other woman in the United States?
Thanks for the offer, but no thanks.
Looks like the spin doctors are in full damage control mode.
