In the post-Dobbs era, Republican presidential candidates are going to be asked whether they support national abortion bans. Their most common response will be to avoid the question and make up a bunch of nonsense about how Democratic states allow post-birth abortions performed by Jewish space layers in imaginary pizza parlor basements. One approach that journalists could take would be to challenge these lies and evasions and ask them to answer the question.
The more common response is likely to be just sitting there mute like a dumbshit while the Republican candidates just bullshits until you immediately move on to the next topic:
here's the full context of DeSantis's lie about blue states having "post-birth abortions" for those curious about how much pushback was offered pic.twitter.com/7zRLJhq0Hq— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) July 18, 2023
Smashing journamalism here. By the way, speaking of “post-borth” abortions Ron DeSantis would like to see more of them, including of people who weren’t even sentenced by unanimous juries.
I can’t wait until the debate when an ostensibly neutral moderator calls Joe Biden “Joe Uterus” for suggesting that the Republican candidate supports the Republican platform on abortion.
