Left AND Right Losing It Over Latest Trump Proposal…Has He Finally Gone Too Far?

Donald Trump can’t seem to avoid controversy. Recently he has evolved from alienating minorities to alienating women.

In recent days he has attacked the wife of rival Ted Cruz, defending the assault of a female reporter by a campaign staffer and now he has gone even farther…

As reported in The Hill:

Donald Trump sparked a firestorm on Wednesday when he said women should be punished for getting illegal abortions.

“There has to be some form of punishment,” the GOP presidential front-runner told MSNBC’s Chris Matthews during a combative interview.

Matthews had asked Trump whether he would seek to ban abortion and how he would enforce such a policy.

“The answer is that there has to be some form of punishment,” Trump said in the interview taped for a town hall forum airing later Wednesday.

“For the woman?” Matthews asked.

“Yeah, there has to be some form,” Trump responded.

The response from the left was immediate and predictable, Salon was typical…

After last night, we can add abortion politics to the long list of issues Donald Trump knows less about than a politically aware 12 year old…It’s obvious why decent people would be appalled.

Condemnation came quickly from the right as well. Ted Cruz slammed Trump to CNN

“It’s the latest demonstration of how little Donald has thought about any of the serious issues facing this country,” Cruz said after taping an appearance on ABC’s “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Wednesday night.
“I am pro-life. Being pro-life means standing and defending the unborn,” Cruz added. “But it also means defending moms. Defending women. And defending the incredible gift women have to bring life into the world. And Donald’s comments, they were unfortunate, they were wrong and I strongly disagree with it.”
