Last night Ted Cruz had Donald Trump reveal what everyone knows about Donald Trump. To the extent that he’s ever thought about the subject in a reflective or prayerful (just joking, Trump is rich so God comes to him for advice, not vice versa) way, Trump is a pro-abort. He probably has a copy of Freakanomics in one of his mansions alongside the texts of the Hitler speeches he’s famed for using for bedtime reading. His conversion to the pro-life side is recent and it is bullsh**.
Here is the video which is chock full of awesome. Not only is Trump battered into blubbering incoherence, it shows that if you don’t take him seriously he is actually very very easy to beat in a debate. This is the prelude:
CRUZ: For most of his life his policies have been very very liberal. For most of his life, he has described himself as very pro- choice and as a supporter of partial birth abortion. Right now today as a candidate, he supports federal tax payer funding for Planned Parenthood. I disagree with him on that.
That’s a matter of principle and I’ll tell you…
TRUMP: You probably are worse than Jeb Bush. You are single biggest liar. This guys lied – let me just tell you, this guy lied about Ben Carson when he took votes away from Ben Carson in Iowa and he just continues. Today, we had robo-calls saying. “Donald Trump is not going to run in South Carolina,” — where I’m leading by a lot.”
I’m not going to vote for Ted Cruz. This is the same thing he did to Ben Carson. This guy will say anything, nasty guy. Now I know why he doesn’t have one endorsement from any of his colleagues.
CRUZ: Don, I need to go on…
TRUMP: He’s a nasty guy.
CRUZ: I will say, it is fairly remarkable to see Donald defending Ben after he called, “pathological,” and compared him to a child molester. Both of which were offensive and wrong.
CRUZ: But let me say this – you notice Donald didn’t disagree with the substance that he supports taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood. And Donald has this weird pattern, when you point to his own record he screams, “liar, liar, liar.” You want to go…
TRUMP: Where did I support it? Where did I…
CRUZ: You want to go…
TRUMP: Again, where did I support it?
CRUZ: If you want to watch the video, go to our website at Tedcruz.org.
TRUMP: Hey Ted, where I support it?
CRUZ: You can see it out of Donald’s own mouth.
TRUMP: Where did I support?
CRUZ: You supported it when we were battling over defunding Planned Parenthood. You went on…
TRUMP: That’s a lot of lies.
CRUZ: You said, “Planned Parenthood does wonderful things and we should not defund it.”
TRUMP: It does do wonderful things but not as it relates to abortion.
CRUZ: So I’ll tell you what…
TRUMP: Excuse me. Excuse me, there are wonderful things having to do with women’s health.
CRUZ: You see you and I…
TRUMP: But not when it comes to abortion.
CRUZ: Don, the reasoned principle matters. The reasoned principle matters sadly was illustrated by the first questions today. The next president is going to appoint, one, two, three, four Supreme Court Justices.
If Donald Trump is president, he will appoint liberals. If Donald Trump is president, your Second Amendment will gone…
Just like his bizarro-world history concerning WMD, this exchange shows that Donald Trump really has no idea at all about what Planned Parenthood does and the idea his thinks he has is simply left wing propaganda.
There is literally NO PLACE in the nation where Planned Parenthood is value added for any of their services that do not involve abortion. Under ObamaCare, women can go to an actual physician instead one of the baby-hating harpies that work for Planned Parenthood. They don’t provide any service that can’t be obtained just as easily from a number of other places. Like a drug store. According to Cecile Richards in testimony to Congress, 86% of Planned Parenthood’s revenue comes from providing abortions.
