According to Whoopi Goldberg on "The View" Donald Trump "managed to do the impossible with those [abortion] comments — he found something both parties can agree on," referring to the flustered comments Trump made yesterday to MSNBC's Chris Matthews about punishing women who had abortions if abortion were to be outlawed across America.
When asked by an insistent Matthews what kind of punishment, Trump said, "I don't know. That I don't know."
According to CNN, he later walked back that comment, clarifying, "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. The woman is a victim in this case as is the life in her womb."
Conservatives and Republicans like Ted Cruz and John Kasich criticized Trump's original comments, but vocal Trump supporter and pastor of First Baptist Dallas Robert Jeffress wrote on Twitter this morning: "Conservatives' outrage over [Trump's] abortion comments hypocritical. Maybe they don't believe abortion is murder."
Do you agree with how Pastor Jeffress put this?
