THERE has been much condemnation of donald drumpf's 'punish the woman for getting an abortion' statement, but his answer to the next question shows he supports imposition of christian sharia law on us. Thank you to Chris Matthews for conducting this hard hitting interview with drumpf because he showed America what he really is, if anyone hadn't figured that out by now. The one thing I still can't understand is that more than 50% of republican women have a favorable opinion of drumpf AFTER he made his statement on women and abortion. I would love to send these women to Iran or saudi arabia for a year so they personally experience the kind of government they want to impose on America. From +Daily Kos+MSNBC & UltraViolet....

When I watched the Chris Matthews interview with Trump on MSNBC tonight, I’d already seen the video exchange where Trump said that women who had gotten an illegal abortion should be punished.  But when I watched the entire discussion, Trump made an even more shocking, and I think, more newsworthy statement that no one even bothered to mention. 
Was this because he was saying something that everyone took as a given?  I really hope to God not.
At the end of that whole segment, just before the commercial break, Chris asked him if the guy who had gotten the woman who had an illegal abortion pregnant should also be punished.  After hemming and hawing for a few seconds - during which Chris pointed out that ‘some would say the guy had something to do with it’, Trump said simply...

I just about fell out of my chair.  But I wasn’t the only one.  There were audible gasps from the pro-Trump audience members, a good portion of which were women.
I know that Trump’s view of women is probably slightly above his views on keeping dogs as pets, so it’s no surprise that he’d said that.  But where is the media outrage over his second statement? 
The idea that women might have to go to jail if they’ve chosen the only option available to them when making the gut wrenching choice about whether to have a child or not, is horrific on it’s own.  But saying that the guy who was equally responsible for putting her in that position should bear no consequences at all when she’s being punished, is beyond the pale.
Thank you Chris Matthews for asking that question, because it really needed to be asked.  But I really think the mainstream media needs to hold him accountable for his FULL statement.

Trump: GOP-approved? (video)
Donald Trump reached shocking new lows this week, even for him.
Possibly more shocking: the number of Republican Party leaders who say they'll endorse him if he's the nominee (which is highly likely).
Trump's racist and sexist rhetoric is defining this election, and every woman voter needs to know what the 2016 GOP is all about. Check out this short video and then please share it with everyone you know.
Trump GOP Approved
Thanks for speaking out.
