Donald Trump Delirious: Crows About High Meet the Press Ratings, But It’s the Same People Who Watched Him on CNN


Donald Trump is crowing about the big ratings for Sunday’s disastrous “Meet the Press.” Three million people watched — the same amount that tuned in to his CNN Town Hall. I’ll bet it’s the same three million people mostly hate-watching.

Trump is also bragging about the worst thing he did — helping to end Roe v. Wade. He doesn’t get it that most Americans do not want abortion banned.
It’s a long post but the gist of his lunacy:

“I was able to do something that nobody thought was possible, end Roe v. Wade. For 52 years, people talked, spent vast amounts of money, but couldn’t get the job done. I got the job done! Thanks to the three great Supreme Court Justices I appointed, this issue has been returned to the States, where all Legal Scholars, on both sides, felt it should be. Now the Pro Life Community has TREMENDOUS NEGOTIATING POWER…”

Trump thinks if he supports very limited exceptions he can get away with this. I don’t think so.
“Like Ronald Reagan before me, I believe in the three exceptions for Rape, Incest, and the Life of the Mother. Without the exceptions, it is very difficult to win Elections, we would probably lose the Majorities in 2024, and perhaps the Presidency itself, but you must follow your HEART! In order to win in 2024, Republicans must learn how to talk about Abortion. This issue cost us unnecessarily, but dearly, in the Midterms…”

He’s partly right– Republicans must learn to talk about  — and accept — abortion.
