Rush: Here Is The REAL Problem With The Trump Abortion Comments FIRESTORM

Donald Trump drew criticism from both liberals and some conservatives yesterday when he made flustered comments to MSNBC's Chris Matthews about punishing women who had abortions if abortion were 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."

On his conservative radio talk show today, Rush Limbaugh weighed in with what he believed the real problem with the whole question was: It was a trap.

He called Matthews a "Democratic Party hack" and said his question was a useless hypothetical.

Rush said, "Matthews asked a question about abortion that I don't recall anybody ever having been asked, and he essentially wanted to know from Trump... 'Should women be punished if the United States bans abortion?' Which is not going to happen, by the way. Certainly no president can do it."

He added, "We have abortion because of a Supreme Court decision in 1973. No president can change that. But the Democrats nevertheless have their techniques, they have their own prejudices, and they have their own biases, and they have their own tricks, if you will."

Rush then delved into what he believes Trump was thinking at that moment, saying, "As far as Trump is concerned, 'he just asked me if something is illegal — what should we do to people who break the law? We should punish 'em.' It's exactly what Trump says when asked about illegal immigrants, for example. It was a hypothetical that I don't foresee ever being reality. I don't see abortion ever being made illegal in this country. Yet here comes this hypothetical."

Is Rush right?
