I’ve said before that I would love to know how many abortions Donald Trump has paid for among his various wives, mistresses and other sundry “conquests.” Now Maureen Dowd asks him outright if anyone he’s been involved with sexually has had an abortion, and guess what? He refused to answer.
In an MSNBC interview with Chris Matthews, the formerly pro-choice Trump somehow managed to end up to the right of the National Right to Life Committee when he said that for women, but not men, “there has to be some form of punishment” if a President Trump makes abortion illegal.
Trump quickly recanted and even told CBS’s John Dickerson that “the laws are set. And I think we have to leave it that way.”
“This was not real life,” he told me. “This was a hypothetical, so I thought of it in terms of a hypothetical. So that’s where that answer came from, hypothetically.”
Given his draconian comment, sending women back to back alleys, I had to ask: When he was a swinging bachelor in Manhattan, was he ever involved with anyone who had an abortion?
“Such an interesting question,” he said. “So what’s your next question?”
Don’t be at all surprised, if he gets the Republican nomination, to see a few women coming out of the woodwork and saying that he got them pregnant and then pushed them to have an abortion and paid for it. I think it’s extremely likely to have happened. And you know the Democrats have been digging deep into every single aspect of his life to build their oppo file.
