When He Gets It Right

I’m not softening on the Donald, but I don’t mind conceding when he gets something right (even if he just stumbles on it by chance).

I’m amused by the thoughtless kerfuffle caused by his saying that if abortions were illegal the woman authorizing one should face legal consequences. And why not? In a moral society where abortions are treated as homicide, why should a woman who pays a doctor to kill her unborn child be treated any differently than a woman who pays a hit-man to kill her husband? In either case someone is deprived of life through her agency.

And the Donald stepped in a further progressive cow-pie when he said the father should not be punished. Mass fainting on the left. Doesn’t this jerk know that in the current progressive equation, women are always right and men are always wrong? Women are always victims, men are always the perps. Nail the guy who contributed to life and who legally has no say in whether an abortion takes place, but console the woman who authorized death. Insane, but it’s where we are now.  

I haven’t watched any news today. Donald’s elves are probably explaining away what the Donald really meant to say. But they needn’t. He got it right.
