Just when you thought that Donald Trump couldn’t possibly say anything more dumb or stupid, or racist or just plain fucked up, he goes on to talk about abortion. On Wednesday after sticking his foot in his mouth Trump said, women who undergo the procedure should face “some form of punishment” should the practice be outlawed. Several hours later — after widespread condemnation from Trump’s presidential rivals and even leading anti-abortion groups — he walked back his remarks, releasing a statement in which he said that women who obtain abortions are victims and that doctors who perform the service are the ones who should be punished.
“If Congress were to pass legislation making abortion illegal and the federal courts upheld this legislation, or any state were permitted to ban abortion under state and federal law, the doctor or any other person performing this illegal act upon a woman would be held legally responsible, not the woman,” Trump said. “The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb. My position has not changed — like Ronald Reagan, I am pro-life with exceptions.”
Trump’s comments came after a lengthy exchange with MSNBC host Chris Matthews who pressured the Republican to give a yes or no answer to the question “should abortion be punished.”
I want to know who are the people who are supporting this clown? I hope anyone else wins but him, our country would suffer greatlly with someone like him as president. #VoteHillary #VoteBernie #VoteCruz #VoteKasich #VoteanyonebutTrump
