Donald Trump’s comments thus far on the Supreme Court’s Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt decision on Monday striking down the key provisions in the Texas abortion law:

 

 

Very eloquent.

Update:

Better late than never.  Trump on Thursday got around to condemning the decision:

In new comments today, Trump condemned the Supreme Court ruling and said the result would be “the opposite” if he is elected president and can appoint Supreme Court justices, like one to replace pro-life Justice Antonin Scalia.

“Now if we had Scalia … or if Scalia was replaced by me, you wouldn’t have had that. Okay? It would’ve been the opposite,” Trump told radio host Mike Gallagher during an interview.

 

Trump also went after pro-abortion Hillary Clinton on Supreme Court judges and fired off criticism at Chief Justice John Roberts for not overturning Obamcare. As the Washington Post reports:

“You know, there’s your first example right there …that’s going to be the first of many. And if she gets in, if she gets in, you won’t even have to question. You wouldn’t even have to bother going to court. You’re going to know the answers,” he said.

“Now, you know, when you appoint judges sometimes, they change their minds, because you had that in the case of Obamacare with John Roberts,” Trump said. “I mean, who would’ve thought that could’ve happened? He could’ve killed it twice, and he didn’t.”

Dawn Laguens, executive vice president of the Planned Parenthood Action Fund, released a statement Thursday slamming Trump.

“Trump’s remarks today should send a shiver down the spine of anyone who believes women should have access to safe, legal abortion,” Laguens said in the statement. “Electing Trump means he will fight to take away the very rights the Supreme Court just ruled this week are constitutional and necessary health care.”

  1. But . . . but . . . but we have to vote for Donald, because there’s like a 2% chance he might nominate one originalist justice (by accident) to the courts out of the dozens and dozens of judicial appointments he will have to make, and that totally makes up for his complete lack of commitment to the pro life cause.

    If only he were so reticent speaking his mind on all the good works Planned Parenthood does.

  2. Anyone expecting Trump to stop abortion is delusional. Then again, how much help has the GOP establishment been in reaching that goal?

  3. Well, it was the Texas GOP that passed the Texas statutes that were struck down on Monday. The only Republican Supreme Court Justice to joint the Democrats in striking them down was Anthony Kennedy. He would never been appointed but for the outrageous character assassination of Judge Bork led by Ted Kennedy in 1987. If Bork had made it to the Court, Roe would now be a bad memory. The Republican party does not get enough credit from pro-lifers for the fight it has waged on this issue, not only against the Dems, but a hostile media, entertainment industry and academia.

  4. My Cruz bumper sticker notwithstanding, if voting for Trump is all I can do to keep Hillary out of the White House, I will vote for him. Think of Trump as a bull in a corrupt china shop.

  5. But . . . but . . . but we have to vote for Donald, because there’s like a 2% chance he might nominate one originalist justice.

    Insert Romney or McCain, and it is the same argument from the last 2 election cycles.

  6. How come that same GOP couldn’t seem to “Bork” Soda Mayor? What is so hard about Nancy’s advice to “just say no”?

    As bad as both were, they had a lot more redeeming qualities than Trump.

    Too many Republicans are terrified of the power of a biased media. The time that the government was shut down due to Democrat intransigence and the Republicans got the blame is instructive. The solution is to go to war against the Democrats and their lackies in the media, which means almost all of the mainstream media. Republicans are still playing by rules that the Democrats long ago discarded. Note that this normally doesn’t happen on the state level where the Republicans tend to outfight the Democrats in most states.

  9. There’s also the issue that Republicans tend to be a little more burdened when it comes to a reluctance to tell bald-faced lies, for whatever reason.

  10. It’s probably better that he hasn’t responded, because you, me, and Trump have no idea what he’d actually say. And it wouldn’t have any bearing on what he’d say tomorrow.

  11. “Too many Republicans are terrified of the power of a biased media.”
    Too many Republicans are terrified period!

  12. “It’s probably better that he hasn’t responded, because you, me, and Trump have no idea what he’d actually say. And it wouldn’t have any bearing on what he’d say tomorrow.”
