Now THIS is what you call saying the quiet parts loud!

A Republican lawmaker called the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn the nationwide right to abortion established nearly 50 years ago in Roe v. Wade a “victory for white life,” which was met with cheers by crowds at a rally held by former president Donald Trump.

“President Trump, on behalf of all the MAGA patriots in America, I want to thank you for the historic victory for white life in the Supreme Court yesterday,” Rep. Mary E. Miller (R) said at the rally Saturday night in Mendon, Ill., referring to Trump’s former campaign slogan, “Make America Great Again.”

She began clapping her hands as spectators, some clutching red “Save America” placards, also began to applaud.Her remark drew widespread condemnation on social media, and Miller’s team swiftly issued an explanation for what it deemed to be “a mix-up of words.”

Uh huh. Must be a one-time mistake.

This is not the first time Miller has been scrutinized for comments in her speeches. Last year, she was forced to apologize after quoting Adolf Hitler at a “Moms for America” event in Washington.

“Hitler was right on one thing. He said, ‘Whoever has the youth has the future,’” Miller said during the rally, just two days after she was sworn in as a House member, leading to calls for her resignation on social media and from Democrats.

Her district in southern and eastern Illinois sent her to Congress in 2020 by a mere 73-26 margin.
