RUSH: ‘Hypothetical’ Abortion Question To Trump Was A ‘GIANT SETUP’

RUSH:  Right.  That’s Matthews.  But you see what’s going on here in this rapid-fire machine gun type accusation that is disguised as a question. (imitating Matthews) “Okay, so you think abortion is murder, you think it’s murder, answer the question. There has to be some form of punishment for the woman or what? She murdered somebody! You’re killing. She choose have an abortion!”

These people have no earthly idea what the pro-life position is all about.  They have no earthly idea how pro-lifers seek to reduce the number of abortions, which is happening, by the way.  They can’t get past the fact that it is what they have made it up to be.  So they ask Trump these questions formed by their own bias, formed by their own prejudice, and since I don’t believe Trump in any way thinks about issues this way, he’s caught.  Okay, what do me supporters want to hear? I gotta be consistent on the law and order, and he’s heard what New York liberals say about conservatives and this kind of stuff, so he might be answering here, articulating what he thinks based on what he’s heard about conservatives and Republicans from his liberal buddies what they want to hear.

At any rate, the whole thing was a giant setup, and the correct way to have dealt with this (and, of course, hindsight’s easy, 20/20) is: “Chris, I don’t do hypotheticals. Chris, abortion’s never gonna be made illegal.”

“Well, how can you be pro-life?”

“I’m pro-life.  I hope that every life that’s conceived is born.  I hope.”

“What, are you gonna punish the women?”

“Chris, not gonna deal with a hypothetical.”  It’s how you deal with this.  But that’s not what happened.
