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…
