Morning Joe Panel Goes Nuts Over Trump’s New Stand

wp_blank Daily Report April 09,2024

Former President Donald Trump is stepping on toes again, with the former president leaving the media and Democrats upset with his latest abortion policy.

Trump, in a Monday Truth Social post, released a statement saying abortion law should be left with the state. The former president took full credit for overturning the now-defunct Roe vs. Wade but added that whatever a state decides on abortion must be the law of the land.

“I was proudly the person responsible for the ending of something that all legal scholars, both sides, wanted, and in fact demanded, be ended: Roe vs. Wade,” Trump said. “My view is now that we have abortion where everybody wanted it from a legal standpoint, the states will determine by vote or legislation or perhaps both, and whatever they decide must be the law of the land. In this case the law of the state.”

Despite the former president’s statement signifying a major shift from his previous stand on abortion, a “Morning Joe” panel was not satisfied, with host Mika Brzezinki describing Trump’s support for abortion as insane and dangerous.

“He’s proud of it. And Democrats should drive that message home because for women, this is a matter of life and death, and the men who love them,” Brzezinki said. “I mean, these laws, depending on how they differ in different states, just muddle the medical journey that is already a nightmare for women when they’re on it, when they have a pregnancy that has complications or they have questions, or they have a situation that is dire.”

Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), who appeared on the show, falsely claimed that Trump is proud he stripped rights away from Americans.

“He is fine with states criminalizing women,” Democratic Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine said. “He’s fine with states giving bounties to those who might report somebody who terminates a pregnancy. Great. You put that out there, and we Democrats and Joe Biden, Kamala Harris, we’re going to say, we believe that women’s reproductive freedom should be protected in this country. Whatever zip code you live in, whatever state you live in, it shouldn’t be up to a group of mostly male legislators deciding how to criminalize your behavior.”
