Strange Goings On : Trump In Trouble
Strange, bizarre and weird.....Trump's campaign got in trouble today when asked a hypothetical question in regard to abortion. It was asked by Chris Matthews of NBC, IF abortion ever became illegal should a women be punished for still having one? The Donald spoke in the affirmative thus stepping into trouble. Why bizarre and weird? Why should a question of such a nature even be framed given the high probability at close to 100 % that such will never happen? A trap set for Trump? Looking at the question how really could anyone answer it? Wouldn't a law cease to be a law without a determent for breaking it? So what would have been a fair and sane question? How about do you believe abortion should be illegal, yes or no? Wouldn't suggesting the other promote law breaking bypassing proper legal channels to change it?
So a fair question to the Donald? In this instance I'd say NO. Interesting though it doesn't really matter. The trap was set and Trump walked into it. The said journalist knows so well that the headline won't read "Trump is asked a hypothetical question about if a law exists" but rather it'll read, "Trump say one who has an abortion should be punished". No not my mere theory for that's whats in the headlines today. Am I a great fan of Trump to be President? Not really although I do like a few of his lines such as bring back the jobs from China. In regard to the question though it would be nice to see the Dems asked the same, so Hillary do you believe legislatures should make laws without penalties for breaking them? You say NO that would make no sense? Exactly and Trump basically said the same.
Now later on this issue Trump has adjusted his position to line himself up with what various Pro-Life organizations put out....that they'd never want to see a women prosecuted for having an abortion but rather the abortion provider. Isn't the weirdness of the question still evident though? Why pose hypothetical questions which have no REAL probability of being relevant? How about it's being rather hypocritical for being so hypothetical for they know they'd never ask such an impossible question to a Hillary Rodham Clinton.
